UNTIED Kingdom — Halle Berry was proudly displaying her iconic physique in a jaw-dropping black bikini as she enjoyed an afternoon on the beach during her birthday getaway.
The actress, who turned 54 on Friday, looked incredible in a racy two-piece as she wandered along the beach in a slow-motion video she shared with fans on Instagram.
Halle celebrated her birthday in style by riding on a skateboard in the sunshine in a separate post as she reminded her followers to have fun while keeping fit.
Halle is no stranger to showcasing her iconic figure, having risen to fame as a Bond Girl in the early 2000s.
And the star once again proved she could turn heads as she wandered by the ocean in the sizzling video.
On Friday Halle looked agelessly radiant once again as she marked her birthday in a separate Instagram post as she proudly skateboarded down the street.
Wearing a T-shirt and bikini bottoms, she rode away from the camera but had glimpsed back over her shoulder to smile at the photographer.
Halle has two children – daughter Nahla, 12, by her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, and son Maceo, six, by her third ex-husband Olivier Martinez.
As she begins the next year of her life Halle will see her feature directorial debut Bruised premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
TIFF will occur September 10 to 19 with a hybrid of virtual and in-person events, though industry members and media are barred from screenings, IndieWire reports.
Halle stars as an ex-fighter who has left the MMA business and lost custody of her son, but the film finds her locked in a struggle to regain her child and career.
‘I didn’t really set out to direct it, I set out to act in it. I read the script and I loved it,’ Halle explained to iHeart + Variety’s The Big Ticket With Marc Malkin.
‘And, it was written, at that time, for a 22-year-old white woman, which, obviously, can’t be me,’ she said, but she persuaded ‘the producers that it should be me, and why it would be more relevant in the times in which we’re living if it were me.’
She got the part but while looking for a director she found that ‘nobody really saw the story that I saw in my head, that I kept talking to the producers about, that they loved.
‘So, finally we just sat down one day and they said: “Why don’t you do it?”‘
Halle confessed: ‘I thought: “I can’t direct, this is a big acting role for me, I don’t think I should be directing as well.”
And they gave me so much confidence and helped me realize that: “But nobody understands it like you. It’s story-telling and we definitely feel confident that you’ve got the story.”
She recalled: ‘I put that hat on for a week or so and I thought about how that felt and I realized, after 25 years in the business there is a lot I know about filmmaking.’
The Oscar-winner shared: ‘I’ve never been the kind of actress that just goes to work, stays in my trailer and says: “Call me when you’re ready.”‘
Before Halle was attached to the project it was slated to star Blake Lively and be helmed by The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes, per Deadline.
