Halle BerryBorn in Cleveland, Ohio on August 14, 1968, Halle Berry's introduction to show business was as a winner of the Miss Teen All-American Pageant, and later went on to compete in the MIss USA and MIss World pageant in 1986 which led to a career in modeling.

A TV acting career soon followed including appearances in Living Dolls, and Knots Landing before her debut film role in Spike Lee's Jungle Fever in 1991.

Berry next appeared in a series of films to mixed reviews including Boomerang opposite Eddie Murphy, and Losing Isaiah with Jessica Lange.

More favorable reviews came with her appearances in Warren Beatty's Bullworth and in Introducing Dorothy Dandridge for which she won a Golden Globe award.

Her role as Storm in the X-Men movie franchise, however, ultimately put Berry on the map - which was soon followed by an appearance opposite John Travolta in Swordfish, a major disaster.

Then came Berry's most critically acclaimed work to date, as she appeared in Monster's Ball opposite Billy Bob Thornton and Sean Combs, for which she was honored as the first African-American woman ever to win the Oscar for Best Actress.

Berry's up-and-down film career includes a first-ever Oscar win for an African-American woman for her starring role
in Monster's Ball; as "Storm" in the popular X-Men movie franchise; and a Razzie win for Worst Actress for Catwoman.


Berry's other notable performances have since included a sexy star turn in the James Bond film, Die Another Day as well as a reprise of her role in the encore box office hit, X2- X-Men United.

Berry's universally panned appearance in Catwoman resulted in a Worst Actress award at the the 2005 Razzie Awards as she followed that performance with a critically acclaimed starring role on the small screen in ABC Television's Their Eyes Were Watching God.

Berry reprised her role as Storm in X-Men 3 (opposite Hugh Jackman as Wolverine) in 2006 and the next year appeared in the thriller "Perfect Stranger," opposite Bruce Willis playing a news reporter caught up in a murder investigation.

Berry's most recent onscreen appearances have included lead roles in Frankie and Alice ( 2010), Cloud Atlas (2012), and The Call (2013).

Off screen, the 41-year-old Berry was reportedly "beyond excited" about expecting her first baby with boyfriend, male supermodel Gabriel Aubry in 2007. The actress later gave birth to a baby girl, her first child, born in Los Angeles on March 16, 2008. Berry gave birth to her second child with husband and actor Olivier Martinez, in the fall of 2013.
