Never give up on your dreams
By Kathy Miller

BT 201903 inspiration 01永不放弃你的梦想



从二十出头开始,她就非常渴望学习新事物。她在娱乐业的辛勤工作和奉献精神得到了回报。如今,她每部电影的最低收入是1400万美元。除了在电影行业赚钱外,她还推出新的内衣线Scandale Paris,灵感来源于法国奢侈内衣,但宗旨是让每个女人可以支付的起。她还花费两年的心血推出了“Halle by Halle Berry”香水。


BT 201903 inspiration 02Who dares, wins
She is among the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood, the first Afro-American woman to have ever won an Oscar. She has starred in A-class movies, as well as in low-budget films. She has had many ups and downs throughout her career, but her eagerness to succeed is what made her outstanding.

It’s always best to be who you are
She was born in Cleveland, Ohio on August 14th, 1966. Her parents divorced when she was only four, so she and her sister moved to Bradford with their mother. Since her father left, their family hadn’t heard of him ever again. Unlike many actresses, she attended both high school and Cuyahoga Community College, where she studied broadcast journalism. Since her parents were interracial, she was exposed to racism in elementary school. Consequently, she turned that negative experience into positive, and never gave up on her dreams.

During her studies, she was very active: she was a prom queen, a cheerleader and an editor of the school newspaper. Her modelling career began when she was only twenty years old and entered several beauty contests. In 1985, she won Miss Teen All American, and in 1986 Miss Ohio USA. At the main beauty contest of the country, she won the second place and went on to take part in Miss World Contest. Soon, she moved to New York to pursue her dream as a model.

The first step is defining what it is you’re after
BT 201903 inspiration 04Her modelling career didn’t take off in New York, so she entered the acting domain. She began her acting career in 1989, playing the role of Emily Franklin in the ABC television series Living Dolls. In 2001, she had a role as Vivian in Spike Lee’s film Jungle Fever. The first time she caught the public’s attention was when she was starring in the movie called Boomerang.

Based on her performance, she was nominated for the MTV Award in the categories Best Breakthrough Performance and Most Desired Female. In 2005, she took the lead role in the TV adaptation of Zora Neale Hurston’s classis 1937 novel Their eyes were watching God, which was produced by Oprah Winfrey’s production company. In April 2007, she was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She also received an Emmy Award, The Golden Globe Award, as well as statuette from the Actors Guild.

Acting is about exploring the human soul
BT 201903 inspiration 05She has starred in many movies such as Flintstones, Losing Isaiah, Bulworth, X-man and its sequels, Swordfish, Monster’s Ball, Gothika, Catwoman, Robots, Perfect Strangers, New Year’s Eve, Kevin Hart: What now?, Kings, and many more. She was also a part of the television documentary called Introducing Dorothy Dandridge.

Starring in the movie Monster’s Ball led her to winning her first Oscar and a Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and a BAFTA Award. She was the first African-American woman to win such an award.

In 2002, she was a part of the movie Die another day with Pierce Brosnan. This turned out to be a profitable project for her, because she received a $4 million pay check for being a new “Bond girl”.

Along with Pierce Brosnan, Cindy Crawford and many others, she successfully fought in 2006 against the Cabrillo Port Liquefied Natural Gas Facility that was proposed off the coast of Malibu. In February 2008, she took a part of a nearly 2,000-house cell-phone bank campaign for Barack Obama. In 2013, she was featured in Gucci campaign, which was supposed to raise funds and awareness of women’s issues in terms of education, health and justice.

BT 201903 inspiration 07Life story
Since her early twenties, she was very eager to learn new things, develop and become successful, which she did. Her hard work and dedication in the entertainment industry have paid off. Nowadays, the minimum she makes per movie is $14 million, which shows how much she has developed. Besides earning money in the movie industry, she also has income from her French Lingerie brand Scandale Paris. Just like many other actors and actresses, she has also launched her fragrance called Halle. If you haven’t guessed who this actress is, this is the life story or Halle Berry.
