Creator: Halle Berry

Halle Maria Berry (born 1966) is an American actress from Cleveland, and was considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. She's a well-rounded actress, whose roles have ranged from slapstick comedy to gritty drama to romance to action to sci-fi. Berry received several awards for the HBO biopic Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, and in 2001 she became the first black woman to win the Academy Award for Best Actress, for her role in Monsters Ball. She has also been involved in the production side of several of her films.

Berry has some notoriety among comic book fans, as while her portrayal of Storm was generally well-received, her performance as Catwoman was not. She has been a good sport about it, however. When it was announced that she would "win" the Golden Raspberry for Worst Actress for Catwoman, she became the second actor (after Tom Green) to accept her Razzie in person, bringing her Oscar along, and parodying her acceptance speech. She received a standing ovation from the audience.
