Her denial to financially help her daughter 

Judith raised her kids as a single parent following her divorce from her ex-husband when Halle was just four years old

As a mom, she always supported her daughter and shared an extremely close bond. 

But there was a time when her daughter Halle did not talk to her for a year after she refused to help her. 

At the age of 18, Halle moved to Chicago carrying a dream of becoming a model, but things didn’t go as she had expected, as she soon found herself broke. 

She was staying with one of the models in a one-bedroom apartment until the model left the town, after which she was left alone, having to pay the whole rent. 

At the time, she called Judith seeking financial help. Judith, in an interview, recalled getting a call from Halle asking $500 to do her portfolio. 

She said she was actually at a time herself when she didn’t have that sort of money to send her. 

Halle was completely shattered by her refusal and was like, “How could my mother say no”? 

And that her ego and pride kicked in, so she did not talk to Judith for a little over a year, Halle said in an interview. 

Halle later realized that her refusal to help when she was in need was the best thing that happened to her as it shaped her into the person she is today. 

While opening up with People about her struggling days in New York City, Halle, said that the best thing her mother did for her was refusing her to help. 

She recalled her mom saying to her that if she wanted to be there, then she needed to work it out, and she had to work it out anyhow. 

When she was asked if she thought of giving up, she said that giving up was never her option. It was to prove to her mother and everybody else that she could do it. 

It took her right back to her high school years. “You say I can’t, Watch me I am going to figure it out, she said. 

And the shelter part was figuring it out for a minute till she could get a waitressing job. 

Then she got the bartending job, and until she could figure, that’s what she did, she added.
