NBA star Shaquille O'Neal says that Halle Berry once threw him off his game when she sat courtside.

"I wanted to give the superstars the same enjoyment that they gave me," he said to Kelly Clarkson. "Like, when I walk into the game and I see Denzel [Washington] and Jack Nicholson, like, when I'm at home watching the Netflix, they give me so much enjoyment so I would always say, 'OK, they're here to watch me and Kobe [Bryant] win the championship, I gotta make sure I always play well.'"

He said he spotted Halle.

"My heart started fluttering, I get nervous, I call a time out. Coach said, 'What are you doing?!' I said, 'Shut up, Halle Berry is here to watch me. Nobody shoots, make sure I get the ball.' And guess what, I actually made the free throw. I made the free throw, I was looking at Halle like [winks]."

"So when I was young, I used to stutter," he added. "She's the only woman that makes my stuttering come back."
