 The 2000s saw Berry’s career skyrocket, with memorable roles as Storm in four X-Men films, and as Bond-girl Jinx in Die Another Day. She was awarded a star on Hollywood’s Walk of
Fame and appeared in more than a dozen films in that decade, further certifying an appeal that goes beyond skin deep and becoming one of Hollywood’s highest- paid actresses in the process.
In 2008, six months after having her first child, Berry was named Esquire’s “Sexiest Woman Alive,” at age 42. She also became the face of Revlon and launched a fragrance with Coty.
In 2010, she became the second black woman ever to grace the cover of Vogue’s coveted September issue, continuing to push racial boundaries.
Last seen in Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017) and John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum (2019), Berry took on a new challenge both in front of and behind the camera last year when she directed and starred in Bruised, a film tracking the career of a mixed martial arts fighter.
In order to get in shape for the film, Berry worked out incessantly, showing the same tireless devotion to her craft as she has at every stage of her lauded career, and sharing her progress with 6.3 million Instagram fans.
But the role she is proudest to play she’ll never win an Oscar for, and it involves no red carpet premieres or press junkets. Berry’s finest performance is that of mother to twelve-year-old daughter Nahla and six-year- old son Maceo, who she considers her most cherished body of work.
