Halle Berry is welcoming life at 50 and letting the world know it.
When the actress and former Bond girl reached that milestone birthday Aug. 14, she posted a stunning outdoor shot on her Instagram account, in which she wears little more than a lace cover-up and a big smile.
“With open arms I welcome 50 … I’m so blessed to be here,” Berry wrote in the post.
It’s a message that Berry wants to continue to send out on social media. That’s why she chose the photo, taken on a recent vacation in the desert, to mark the occasion.
“I said ‘What do I want to say about my 50th birthday?’ ” Berry told USA TODAY during a phone conversation. “I’m now into the whole world of social media and realizing that it’s my platform to say whatever I want to say. I love it. So I just wanted to let every one of my fans know I am embracing 50.”
