Halle Berry has yet to fail when it comes to delivering breath-taking Instagram updates. The 53-year-old Oscar winner is adored for her off-kilter and unusual posts, her jaw-dropping, MMA-trained body, and the effort with which she tries to get her 5.9 million followers active and healthy.
Halle tends to opt for lengthy captions as she embraces Instagram’s various hashtags, but her Wednesday post was too early for #FitnessFriday. Fans got one stunning photo and a reminder that Halle’s big heart is nonetheless a little vulnerable.
Halle’s photo showed her photographed in black-and-white and close up. The “John Wick” star was posing unclothed and looking down at her shoulder – carefully-placed hands here formed a heart shape as Halle had both thumbs touching and a similar deal with her index fingers.
The photo had a certain vulnerability to it, as well as a strength. Halle had her long hair cascading down her shoulders with its softness also seen in her facial expression, but the act of showing her “heart on my sleeve” caption unleashed a certain brave vibe.
Halle’s posts may not rake in a Kardashian-level of engagement, but the fans are there. Alongside comments, Halle’s post today brought in over 11,000 likes in just 20 minutes.
Comments came pouring in.
“Beautiful,” one fan wrote.
“And what a beautiful heart it is!” another said.
Meanwhile, others seemed to have been attempting the hand position.
“LOL I seriously just did this with my hands on my arm because I’m like How she doing that?! ????,” a fan wrote.
One user even suggested that Halle should get a tattoo there.
Halle sparked a wave of rumors recently as she took to Instagram with her long-time friend and personal trainer, Peter Lee Thomas. Peter appears in many of Halle’s updates, with the most recent duo appearance seeing the two linking arms as Halle wore a sheer sports bra. Fan speculation prompted a response from Halle.
“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. ❤️”
Halle made headlines earlier this year for announcing the launch of her Re-Spin fitness collection. The star’s announcement post showing her in a plunging white one-piece and posing with red boxing gloves came with excited-sounding words.
“Welcome to an EXTRA special edition of #FitnessFriday!! For the last two years, you’ve showed up, showed out and shared this crazy fitness adventure with me and @peterleethomas! 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!!” she wrote.
The merch is available in stores such as TJ Maxx and Marshalls.
