Halle Berry, 54, skateboards in T-shirt and bikini bottoms

Halle Berry looks agelessly radiant skateboarding in a T-shirt and bikini bottoms as she turns 54: ‘Life just gets better and better!’

She turned 54 this Friday. And Halle Berry looked agelessly radiant as she marked the occasion with an Instagram picture of herself skateboarding.

Wearing a T-shirt and bikini bottoms, she rode away from the camera down the street but turned back to smile at the photographer.

A rainbow shone in front of her in the picture, which the Oscar-winner captioned: ’54….life just gets better and better!’

Halle shared a video montage of herself skateboarding last month in a post marking Fitness Day and reminding her followers to ‘HAVE. FUN’ while exercising. 

She recently posted an Instagram snap of herself frolicking across the beach in a bikini, revealing how impressively she has maintained her knockout figure.

Her orange bikini was reminiscent of the one she wore 18 years ago as the Bond girl Jinx in Die Another Day opposite Pierce Brosnan.

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 that ‘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.
