Halle Berry knows how to make an impression on social media.
The Oscar-winning actress doesn’t post all that many photos on her Instagram page, but when she does… HOLY HOTNESS.
She. Makes. Them. Count.
One year ago, Berry jumped into the Instagram fray via a topless photo that most definitely caught the attention of those across the Web.
But she was facing away from the camera at the time.
The tantalizing prospect of what Berry’s chest would look like if she turned around made for quite an opening Instagram post, but it also left far too much to one’s imagination.
Fortunately for all warm-blooded men, however, Berry has learned from this mistake.
Just consider the image she shared online four weeks ago:
Not shabby, huh?
This seductive snapshot only served as a warm-up act for the Internet-halting photo Berry posted on Thursday evening.
Despite not having any major movies on the way and despite a boring lull in her love life, Berry managed to make endless headlines with the following, bra-free photograph:
“Me when someone says ‘I’m coming over and I’ve got snacks,'” the 50-year old* captioned the photo, which depicts her posing outside with long tousled hair and sans makeup.
(*Yes, Halle Berry is 50 years old!)
Berry is standing with her arms outstretched and the outline of her boobs visible under a sheer white lace dress that plunges to her navel.
And Twitter has A LOT to say about pretty much everything included in this amazing picture.
As of this writing, the photo has nearly 112,000 Likes on Instagram (including one from Tyrese Gibson!) and has elicited reactions such as the following:
“Um @halleberry…I’m coming over and I’ve got snacks? #TheNewAllStateMantra,” wrote Questlove in response to this posting.
A mother of two, Berry said in 2015 that she often felt pressure from Hollywood to go under the knife.
“It is pressure,” she said of getting plastic surgery.
“When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, ‘To stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing?'”
Still, Berry has resisted.
And you’ve gotta admire her reason why.
“I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self,” she told Us Weekly, adding:
“Aging is natural, and that’s going to happen to all of us. I just want to always look like myself, even if that’s an older version of myself.”
It’s safe to say that looking like an older version of herself is working out quite well for Berry, isn’t it?
