Without a doubt Halle Berry is one of the most stunning women on the planet. She’s beautiful with a naturally inviting smile, and it seems like her body continues to get better with time like a fine wine. But aside from her looks Berry is one of the top actresses in Hollywood. As such, her image is one of the most important things she needs to maintain. Yet in a world that obsesses over youth on a daily basis, Berry seems to be aging backwards.
Since first bursting on the scene in the late 80’s/early 90’s Berry has always been known for her beauty. And why wouldn’t she be, since she is indeed a former beauty queen. In 2016 Berry once spoke about her time in the pageant world and how it made her feel, especially entering the movie business. E! reports;
“I came from the world of beauty pageants and modeling and right away when people heard that I got discounted as an actor,” she explained during an interview with W magazine for their October issue.
Berry admitted that taking on the controversial role of a crack addicted prostitute in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever gave her the push to show her acting chops and finally be taken seriously as an actress;
So, I had the job of trying to eliminate that part of my persona, and Spike gave me a chance to do that. And I took on roles early on that really didn’t rely on my physical self at all and that was a good way to sort of get some credibility within my industry.”
Nowadays it seems like Berry can grab any role she wants, and has over the years including the role from the film that snagged her the Academy Award, Monster’s Ball. Still, people are always in Berry’s business. And now, Celebrity Insider is reporting that Berry is coming under fire because of her friendship with her personal trainer, Peter Lee Thomas. Berry posts numerous photos of the two of them working out together, leading her Instagram followers to believe they’re both more than friends. But Berry immediately shut those rumors down before they could spiral out of control.
“You know, it’s funny. I have had said sooo many times that we are not dating. It’s frustrating that two people can’t be spirit animal friends. I don’t have to date every man I have a relationship with. Please know I love you all, but please let this go and see our friendship and union for what it is. It’s a fitness journey that inspires us both! We are here to inspire and help you all any way we can. That’s it! Thank you for your understanding. I vow not to address this again. With all the love in my heart. ❤️”
Looks like Berry wants everyone to focus on their fitness and not their friendship. Hopefully everyone got the memo.
