America has been in love with Halle Berry for going on thirty years now. Ever since she had her breakout role co-starring with Eddie Murphy in the 1992 romantic comedy Boomerang, Berry has been one of our talented, delightful, and drop-dead gorgeous stars. She’s been an X-Man, a Swordfish, and a whole bunch of different things in Cloud Atlas, but one thing that has never changed is her sense of style and beauty. With all that said, we also just love it when Halle Berry posts on Instagram, because we get pictures like this:
In this picture, Halle Berry is sitting on an unidentified set of gray stone steps. While we cannot be certain exactly where she is, the cropped, Ororo Munroe-like hairstyle peeking out from under her black velvet Greek sailor’s cap indicates that this was a recent picture, as she had that same look at the Critics Choice Awards. The star of Gothika is dressed in an alluring, diaphanous that is practically scandalizing in its translucence. One of her shoulders is bare and shining in the sun (fitting, given the caption of a sun emoji and kissed), and her slender legs are delicately placed in front of her. As we would expect from Halle Berry, it’s a simple and breathtaking look.
Halle Berry’s fame reached its highest peak in the early 2000s, when she starred in Bryan Singer’s first X-Men movie, Monster’s Ball, Die Another Day, and Catwoman in quick succession. It is a pretty momentous run of films to star in the beginning of the longest-running comic book movie franchise, become the first African-American woman to win the Academy Award for Best Actress, co-star with Pierce Brosnan in his final turn as James Bond, and win the Golden Raspberry for what is generally considered one of the worst comic book adaptations of all time. But Berry has never stopped working, and in fact put in some of her best performances after that odd sequence of films, including the aforementioned Cloud Atlas. She reprised her iconic role of the mutant Storm in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, and starred in Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Halle Berry also joined Keanu Reeves in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, and there are rumors of a spin-off for her character Sofia.
While Halle Berry may or may not get that John Wick spin-off (they said that about her 007 character Jinx as well, after all), she is still keeping busy. She recently starred in Roland Emmerich’s space disaster film Moonfall with Patrick Wilson (in which the moon turns out to be an evil robot, we think), and made her directorial debut for the Netflix film Bruised, in which she played a disgraced boxer attempting to bond with her estranged son. Halle Berry is currently in production on The Mothership, a science fiction film written and directed by Matt Charman (who also wrote the acclaimed Steven Spielberg film Bridge of Spies). Until that is released in theaters, we just hope Halle will keep releasing pictures like these.
