The Call's Halle Berry and Morris Chestnut on Stripper Improv and Strong Women on Film

Sometimes, Mother Nature creates genetic specimens so perfect that "Did it hurt when you fell from Heaven?" isn't a pick-up line; it's just a valid question. Such is the case with Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry and heartthrob Morris Chestnut in their newest flick, The Call.

The dazzling duo costars in the thriller with former child star Abigail Breslin (who is all grown up and running around in a bra, by the way). The flick's plot revolves around a 911 operator who gets personally involved with a particular caller -- one serious sicko who's into young girls.

We scored a sneak peek at the high-intensity flick, and it fueled a 24-hour adrenaline rush. Afterward, we were graced with the presence of the talented twosome and got to grill them on parenthood, strong women, and 911 calls. See what they had to say. (Or just look at pictures of their epic perfection. Whatevs.)
