Halle Berry


American actress, former fashion model, and beauty queen.
Halle Berry
I've never been afraid to be who I really am on screen.
Berry quotes
As beautiful as Halle is on the outside, she's 10 times more beautiful on the inside.
Berry
You know, she often tells me that what I do is great. I don't think she ever thought I would end up doing this with my life. But I think she is happier that I haven't changed over the years, that I am still me, that I care about her and that we are the same as we always were. And I think that is what makes her most proud.




Berry Halle quotes
It's an amazing feeling to know that life is actually growing inside your body. The first time you see the ultrasound and you see the little bones and you realise that it's part of you and it's in your care is life changing and this sort of protective instinct has taken over.
Berry Halle
I'm not obsessive, like I have to have the best butt or the best abs, but I like the idea of feeling strong and healthy. It's important to feel good about myself physically.
Halle Berry quotes
I don't buy into that pressure to be glamorous all the time. It's impossible, I mean, you get a pimple in the morning, you wake up with bags under your eyes, you see if you can use it in your work, maybe incorporate it into your character.
Halle Berry
Sexiness is a state of mind -- a comfortable state of being. It's about loving yourself in your most unlovable moments.
Berry Halle quotes
For me, the walk of the character is always the first part that I must define for myself.
Berry
I love Halle. She's so sweet. I connected with her immediately and, even though we only worked together for a few days, it was the best connection I've ever had with an actress. She made me feel like I could trust her.
Berry Halle
Actors always have to fight for the good parts. There are so few good roles written for women each year, and when one is written like this every actress in town covets the role.
Halle Berry
I get offered varied parts, often super sexy roles. But I still think it's an issue to find the good scripts. It's a myth that you win an Oscar and you get more opportunities, and this doesn't just go for me.




Halle Berry quotes
The fact is that I like thrillers and action movies. But what really fulfills me is getting out of my comfort zone, taking chances.
Halle Berry
When you grow up in that (multi-ethnic) environment, you see the world differently. Being a mixed-race child, I didn't always see colour in people, I really didn't. It was other people that made me see the colour all the time.
Berry quotes
I've always liked to go down a different path. Being a woman of color, I never followed a cookie cutter way.
Berry Halle
When I held that statuette, I felt as if I had won a triumph not just for myself, but for every other woman who'd struggled to overcome the same sort of background.
Berry Halle quotes
I never even think about the physicality of roles, until honestly I get the gig and I think, 'OK, now what do I have to do in this one?' Like, I approach it thinking more about the character -- do I respond to it? Is it something I think I can play? Does it seem like it'll be fun?
Halle Berry
I've also grown as an actor as I've got older in life. I've learnt how to go to work, immerse myself 100 per cent in the character and, at the end of the day, take it all off and go back, get a nice bubble bath, have a nice massage and realise that is not my life. And that feels good.
Halle Berry quotes
Being a black woman, I've often felt I've been judged by my sex and my race, and I have always known that it shouldn't hamper me.
Halle Berry
I used to believe that if my career was going great, then I was not entitled to a great personal life. Well, I've stopped thinking that way. I believe I can have it all.
Berry Halle
When a young woman tells me that she wants to become and actor, I say, 'No, be a writer. Or go to business school and learn how to run a studio.' The only real change will come from behind the scenes.
