Former teenage beauty queen, named after the department store Halle Brothers, who gave up a successful modeling career to become an actress in the late 1980s. From the time she was a child, she was known for her impecible beauty, but behind the beauty is a very talented actress and model. In high school, she was voted queen of the prom, but was then accused of "stuffing the ballot box".

While it still wasn't true, to make things easier, she shared the title with someone else. As a teenager, Halle went on to compete in beauty contests and she undeniably won many of them. Halle made her first acting career jump, when she was cast on a television sitcom show.

In 1989, Berry landed the role of brainy Emily Franklin in the short-lived ABC television series Living Dolls (which was a spin-off of Who's the Boss?). Her breakthrough feature film role was in Spike Lee's Jungle Fever where she played a drug addict named Vivian. Her first co-starring role was in the film Strictly Business. Another one of her early roles was in a supporting capacity in the Flintstones movie where she played "Sharon Stone" (a part rumored to have been intended for Sharon Stone). Berry would co-star alongside Stone in Catwoman.

The year before, Berry really caught the public's attention with her portrayal as a female slave in the TV adaption of Queen: The Story of an American Family. Berry is also known by most comic book fans for her portrayal of Storm in the movie adaptation of the successful comic book X-Men (2000) and its successful sequel X2: X-Men United (2003). Berry will reprise her role again in the third installment X-Men 3 scheduled for a May 2006 release. In late 2003 Berry starred in the thriller Gothika, which was the first film that she "carried," i.e., her role was the most important one in the film.

Having long refused to do any nude scenes, much was made of her first topless scene in the film Swordfish, a thirty-second scene. She followed this with a more extended nude love scene in Monster's Ball. Her appearance in this film won her the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2002, becoming the first African American woman to win this award. As Bond Girl Jinx in 2002's Die Another Day she famously re-created the scene from Dr. No, bursting from the surf - scantily clad - to be greeted by James Bond, as Ursula Andress did 40 years earlier.

Known for her beauty, Halle as served many years as the face of Revlon cosmetics and was recently named the new face of Versace. From beauty contests to blockbuster movies to entertaining our U.S. Army troops in foreign countries to a multi-million dollar modeling contract with Revlon, she is a sensation behind the characters she plays and the absolute grace that she portrays. Many fans will agree, that the beauty on the outside, is mirrored from the inside-out.
