Calhoun’s mother, Theresa C Bailey, said the family had been “blown away” by the love and support they had received.

In an update posted on Wednesday (November 10), Bailey wrote: “On behalf of the Calhoun and Bailey family, I would like to thank each and every person who found in their hearts the much-needed financial support for Coronji laity. Mr . rest.

“We are impressed by the outpouring of love that the Coronji community and adoptive family have shown during our grieving process. While the financial burden has been removed, we still mourn the loss of my son.

“As we close this chapter, we ask that in your memory of him, remember to love your neighbor as yourself, because that is what Coronji did for his entire community.”

Calhoun was 10 years old when he starred in Monster’s Ball, which is his only credit to him as an actor.

The film follows protagonist Letitcia Musgrove (Berry), who falls in love with the prison guard (Billy Bob Thornton) who flipped the switch to execute her husband as an inmate of hers (Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs) in the corridor of death.

Oscar for Best Actress at the 2002 Academy Awards

Berry won the Oscar for Best Actress at the 2002 Academy Awards for her performance. Speaking before the awards, Berry explained how difficult it was to act abusively towards Calhoun in the film, who played her artistically talented son who was overweight.

In a 2001 interview, Berry said: “It was much more difficult even than the love scene because [Coronji] was actually 10 [years old] and obese.

“I was worried that it would somehow hurt him emotionally, not just doing the scene, but in the future. So I talked to him a lot and hugged and kissed him a lot. He said, “You don’t have to worry about what you say; it can’t be as bad as the way they treat me at school.”

“But I heard that he is now the most popular kid in his school. So I guess [the movie] helped. ”

Hollywood landmark

Calhoun was only 10 years old when he appeared in Monster’s Ball, but he had no other acting credits.

The film provided a historic cinematic moment when Berry became the first black woman to win the Oscar for best actress.

The film focuses on the relationship between Leticia Musgrove (Berry) and Hank Grotowski (Billy Bob Thornton), who begin a relationship without knowing that she is the widow of a man (Sean Combs) whom she helped execute.

Calhoun played her artistically talented son, whom she abuses physically and emotionally because of her obesity.
