When you think of Halle Berry, stunning doesn’t do her justice. The actress has starred in a slew of big budget Hollywood films, became the first black woman to ever win an Oscar, and has been dubbed “most beautiful” by anyone who has had the pleasure of setting eyes on her. The 53-year-old might have slowed down on the Hollywood on the big screen in lieu of focusing on her family life, but that doesn’t stop the actress from reminding us from time to time why her name is synonomous with beauty.
On Feb. 24, Berry posted a photo on her Instagram account page where she’s followed by nearly six million avid users. TheJohn Wick 3 actress was pictured laying on her side with her eyes hidden behind shades. She was wearing nothing but a cleavage-bearing white bathing suit, one that emphasized the work she’s been putting in at the gym in so many ways. For her caption, she wrote, “Somewhere on a mini vacay.”
In case we needed a reminder, the mama of two doesnt need her groove back — it never left.
For her followers, seeing the fruits of her labor doesn’t come as any surprise as the ageless beauty frequently depicts just how dedicated she is to staying motivated to fitness. Her recurring series on her Instagram, aptly called #FitnessFriday, features her sharing tips about her lifestyle, fitness, and wellness. Berry’s trainer Peter Lee Thomas lends his hand at helping her present information with an assist from his expertise and is usually involved in helping followers get their fitness on through her Instagram stories.
Earlier this month, during what she deemed a special edition of #FitnessFriday, Berry announced that she was bringing her fitness inspo lifestyle to stores and moving her brand beyond IG. Respin By Halle Berry is her first-ever fitness collection and can be purchased at TJ Maxx, Ross, Marshalls, and Burlington all across the United States.
She wrote, “For the last two years, you’ve showed up, showed out and shared this crazy fitness adventure with me and [trainer Peter Lee Thomas]! I’m so eternally grateful for you guys, and wanted to create something extra special to celebrate our two years together – I’m thrilled to announce my first EVER fitness collection, rē•spin by Halle Berry!”
One thing’s for sure, Berry has no plans of slowing down on her fitness journey anytime soon. In addition to staying active, Berry keeps herself healthy by also being mindful of what she eats. The actress swears by drinking a tall glass of lemon water to hydrate herself at the beginning of each day and eats a mostly ketogenic diet.
“Being diabetic most of my life, I have always had to take food very seriously. So for years, I have been following the keto or ketogenic diet. I also believe it’s been largely responsible for slowing down my aging process. The keto lifestyle offers so many benefits such as weight loss, (moms that’s how we get rid of our baby bellies), appetite control, more energy and better mental performance,” she revealed in an Instagram post. “If you’re like me, you can possibly reverse type 2 diabetes, you’ll experience better physical endurance, better skin and also less acne if that’s an issue. And it even helps control migraines!”
Years ago, rapper Kendrick Lamar posed a famous question in his 2012 hit “Money Trees” when he asked, “Halle Berry or Hallelujah?” The two things were supposed to represent worldly pleasures versus faith in a higher power. Since her days where her infamous short hair reigned supreme, Berry has been tantalizing people with her warm deep eyes, cocoa butter-kissed skin, and bountiful curves.
Though she’s highly regarded for her looks, Berry has been quoted saying this in the past, “Let me tell you something – being thought of as a beautiful woman has spared me nothing in life. No heartache, no trouble. Love has been difficult. Beauty is essentially meaningless and it is always transitory.”
