Over the last two decades she has been present in some of the most successful blockbusters including the “X-Men” movie series, “Catwoman” and “Gothika”
Acclaimed and awarded actress Halle Berry is 53 today
Halle Berry is one of Hollywood’s most talented and in demand actresses for over the last two decades. She was born in Cleveland, Ohio on August 14, 1966 and early in her life, she had plans to become a professional model. She achieved partially that dream by entering in several beauty contests, finishing as the first runner-up in the Miss USA pageant and coming in an amazing sixth place in the Miss World 1986.
But the acting call was stronger, during the early 1990’s she first got her name out as an actress, when she starred in the 1991 movie “The Last Boy Scout” alongside Bruce Willis, but it was with “Boomerang”, the 1992 romantic comedy alongside Eddie Murphy that led her to roles in blockbusters such as “The Flintstones”. By the end of the decade, Berry was one of the best well known actresses in the world and during the 2000’s, she also became one of the highest paid. For that, it contributed the Academy Award for Best Actress she won for the 2001 movie “Monster’s Ball”, making Hollywood history by becoming the only woman of African American descent to have won the award. The decade was filled with blockbusters starring Berry, including one of her signature roles as the character Storm in “X-Men” movie series, but also in “Catwoman”, “Gothika” and the Bond movie “Die Another Day”. Over the last decade she has cherry picked her roles and became increasingly a more versatile actress, which can be witnessed in movies such as the 2012 “Cloud Atlas”, “The Call” and “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”. Halle Berry’s, who also has produced some of her own movies, has recently starred in the 2019 “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” and today she turns 53.
