Did you know that Halle Berry is turning 51 this August? And guess what – she recently posted a seemingly topless photo on Instagram. At close scrutiny, you might notice there’s no sign that time or gravity has any effect on her.
To complete her post, Halle captioned it with a Nina Simone quote that goes: “I’ll tell you what freedom is to me. No fear.”
Since Halle posted the image on May 17, it has garnered over 107,000 likes, countless comments, and may have caused a rip in the space-time continuum.
Because this is Halle Berry we’re talking about, we can’t just gawk at one shot. Here are some of our favorites.
In honor of the big FIVE OH I have decided that on the 14th of every month this year I'd like to share little gems of wisdoms that these five decades have taught me. (And please feel free to lay down what you've learned!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Free at 50: In my opinion, there is no greater feeling than being FREE to be your truest, most authentic self. Finally at 50, I am able to embrace that philosophy completely, more than ever before. With love, I say PEACE OUT to the last decade, which was my most challenging ever and hello to the new one, as I am now armed with an abundance of strength and wisdom that only tough life lessons can bring!
The big FIVE OH has taught me the importance and value of daily meditation. It has not only enhanced my ability to face challenges throughout the day, but meditation is food for my soul that changes my perspective and brings clarity to my mind. Meditation has made me aware that my inner attitude determines my own happiness and no one else or no thing has that power. Meditation has been a wonderful way for me to get in touch with my intuition and my higher self. I'm a firm believer that our higher selves always know best. My challange has been to learn to listen to my higher self and trust in it's infinite wisdom. Meditation allows me a safe place to hear myself, to love myself, and most importantly to guide myself along life's tricky paths. At times my intuition has lead me to make choices that were frightening and seemed wrong, but in the end it has always been for my highest good. Sometimes to really OPEN your eyes you have to close them.
A big heartfelt thank you to Donatella, Lucio and the @Versace_Official family for another fabulous Oscar night! I truly felt like a million bucks. Each design is so unique and special that it's always hard to choose just one. May our love affair continue! Also thanks to @VinceCamuto I have found my new favorite shoe and @ForeverMarkUSA thank you for making me sparkle all night! And thank you to the most boss glam squad ever, @iamlindsayflores @karayoshimotobua and @castillo_13. Until next time…that's an Oscar wrap! 👋🏽🖖🏽
