If aging gracefully were an Olympic sport, Halley Berry would be a gold medalist. The actress and mother of two turned 50 on Sunday (Aug. 14), and she’s looking better with age.
Berry marked the milestone in an Instagram photo which she captioned, “With open arms I welcome 50… I’m so blessed to be here!”
More than finding the fountain of youth (see: #BlackGirlMagic), the Ohio native has been a fixture in film and TV for close to three decades.
Berry scored her first TV roll in the 1989 series Living Dolls, and would go on to snag gigs on classic shows like Living Dolls, Knox Landing, Amen, and A Different World.
The former Miss Teen Ohio who landed her debut film role in Spike Lee’s 1991 film, Jungle Fever, has appeared in more than 45 films — and lest we not forget that she made history in 2002 as the first black woman to win a Best Actress Oscar.
