Happy birthday, Halle Berry! The actress celebrated her 50th birthday on Sunday and proved she’s taking the milestone in stride.
In a sexy Instagram photo of herself wearing nothing but a see-through lace coverup, the actress celebrated her birthday with a message of positivity.
“With open arms I welcome 50... I’m so blessed to be here!” she wrote.
While she looks like she’s hardly aged, Berry is no stranger to the pressure of staying young in the industry, having started her career in beauty pageants and being a spokesperson for cosmetics giant Revlon.
Last year, the actress spoke to Yahoo! Beauty about the pressure to get work done, saying the thought has crossed her mind given the prevalence of cosmetics procedures in Hollywood.
“I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self. Aging is natural, and that’s going to happen to all of us,” she said. “I just want to always look like myself, even if that’s an older version of myself. I think when you do too much of that cosmetic stuff, you become somebody else in a way.
She says her healthy outlook on aging had only gotten better with the passing years.
“As I’ve gotten older, I’ve also become a lot more confident with the idea of just being myself, of being comfortable with whom I am,” she told Chatelaine. “That’s what makes me feel really good today.”
We couldn’t agree more. Fifty’s never looked so good, Halle.
