Halle Berry (born August 14, 1966) in Cleveland, Ohio, USA to African American father Jerome Berry, a former hospital attendant, and Caucasian mother Judith Berry, a retired psychiatric nurse. Berry also has an older sister named 'Heidi Berry'. Berry first came into the spotlight at 17 years old when she won the Miss Teen All-American Pageant, representing the state of Ohio in 1985 and, a year later in 1986, when she was the first runner-up in the Miss USA Pageant. After participating in the pageant, Halle became a model.

It eventually led to her first weekly TV series, 1989's Living Dolls (1989), where she soon gained a reputation for her on-set tenacity, preferring to "live" her roles and remaining in character even when the cameras stopped rolling. It paid off though when she reportedly refused to bathe for several days before starting work on her role as a crack addict in 'Spike Lee' Jungle Fever (1991) because the role provided her big screen breakthrough. The following year, she was cast as 'Eddie Murphy' love interest in Boomerang (1992), one of the few times that Murphy was evenly matched on screen.

In 1994, Berry gained a youthful following for her performance as sexy secretary Sharon Stone in The Flintstones (1994). She next had a highly publicized costarring role with 'Jessica Lange' in the adoption drama Losing Isaiah (1995). Though the movie received mixed reviews, Berry didn't let that slow her down, and continued down her path to super-stardom.

In 1998, she received critical success when she starred as a street smart young woman who takes up with a struggling politician in 'Warren Beatty' Bulworth (1998). The following year, she won even greater acclaim for her role as actress 'Dorothy Dandridge' in made-for-cable's Introducing Dorothy Dandridge (1999), for which she won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Movie/Mini-Series. In 2000, she received box office success in X-Men (2000) in which she played "Storm", a mutant who has the ability to control the weather.

  • Studies acting under 'Ivana Chubbuck' (qv).
  • Is one of only 7 African-American actresses to be nominated for the Best Actress Oscar. The others in chronological order are: 'Dorothy Dandridge' (qv), 'Diana Ross (I)' (qv), 'Cicely Tyson' (qv), 'Diahann Carroll' (qv), 'Whoopi Goldberg' (qv) and 'Angela Bassett' (qv).
  • The age difference between herself and 'Rosamund Pike' (qv) in _Die Another Day (2002)_ (qv) - 12 years and 5 months - is the greatest age difference between two Bond girls in one film since 'Alison Doody' (qv) and 'Grace Jones (I)' (qv) - a difference of 18 years - in _A View to a Kill (1985)_ (qv).
  • Named one of the 50 most beautiful people in People Magazine in 2003.
  • Graduate of Bedford High School, Bedford, Ohio
  • Was born in Cleveland but grew up in Oakwood Village, Ohio. She still has family there.
  • Measurements: 36C-22-37 (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine)
  • Was listed as a potential nominee on the 2004 Razzie Award nominating ballot. She was suggessted in the Worst Actress category for her performance in the film _Gothika (2003)_ (qv), she failed to receive a nomination however. The very next year though, she got a nomination for Worst Actress in the film _Catwoman (2004)_ (qv).
