Name: Halle Maria Berry
Birth Date: August 14, 1966
Birth Place: Cleveland, Ohio, USA
Born on August
14, 1966 in Cleveland, Ohio, Halle Maria Berry
and her older sister Heidi were raised by their
mother Judith, a psychiatric ward nurse. Halle's
father walked out on the family when she was
only 4 years old.
In 1983, when she was only 17 years old, Halle's
then-boyfriend entered her name in the Miss
Teen Ohio beauty pageant. Once again, it's no
surprise that Halle got to wear the crown in
But it didn't stop there: Halle won many other
high-profile competitions, including Miss Teen
All-American, Miss USA (first runner-up) and
Miss World. Once she was done raking in points
by winning pageant after pageant, Halle continued
her education at Cleveland's Cuyahoga Community
College in 1986, studying broadcast journalism.
Halle moved to Manhattan, where she immediately
landed her first TV gig in Living Dolls. Although
the show was short-lived, Halle was more determined
than ever to become a great actress.
Other movies that Halle starred in include Executive
Decision (1996), Race the Sun (1996), B*A*P*S
(1997), Bulworth (1998), and Introducing Dorothy
Dandridge, for which she won a Golden Globe
and an Emmy for Best Actress in a Miniseries
or TV movie.
In 2000, Halle starred as Storm/Ororo Munroe
in the live film adaptation of the cartoon strip
X-Men -- along with fellow mutants Rebecca Romijn
and Famke Janssen.
Unfortunately, Berry made headlines when she
was charged with a hit and run in 2000. She
pleaded no contest and the judge ordered her
to perform 200 hours of community service. She
also made news when she was allegedly paid a
$500,000 bonus to reveal her breasts in a scene
in 2001's hacker film, Swordfish.
In 2001, Halle married soul singer Eric Benet,
but the couple divorced in 2003.
Next, Halle appeared in the psychological thriller
Gothika (2003) and in Catwoman (2004), which
was panned by critics.
In 2005, Halle appeared in the TV movie Their
Eyes Were Watching God and lent her voice to
the animated film Robots. Her projects for 2006
include the third X-Men installment, X-Men:
The Final Stand and the thriller Perfect Stranger.
Halle was also named the new face of Versace.
During a photoshoot for the designer, Halle
met her current boyfriend, top model Gabriel
Halle Berry is obviously looking forward to
a bit of a party. The Oscar-winner, who is currently
taking some time off after a whirlwind tour
to promote her sci-fi adventure X-Men 3, was
photographed buying several bottles of Margarita
mix in Beverly Hills this week.

The 39-year-old has good reason to celebrate,
as her latest movie has broken box office records
on both sides of the pond. And having just finished
work on a new thriller with Bruce Willis, the
actress, who is not due to start work on her
next production until September, is making the
most of some well-earned R&R.
After appearing in a series of big-budget Hollywood
movies, Halle is anxious to return to the kind
of thoughtful drama that earned her an Academy
Award back in 2002. Movie insiders say the forthcoming
indie flick Things We Lost In The Fire, in which
she stars opposite Benicio Del Toro, is likely
to see her back on prize-winning form.
In the meantime, however, the acclaimed performer
will be focusing on spending quality time with
new beau Gabriel Aubrey. Much has been made
of her ill-fated marriages to baseball player
David Justice and singer Eric Benet, but friends
say she is enjoying a less tempestuous relationship
with the hunky Canadian model.
