Becoming ... Halle Berry

See the Catwoman star's evolution from beauty pageant-queen to red-carpet royalty. By Lucy Maher


In her first film role, in 1991's Jungle Fever (with director Spike Lee), Berry played a crack addict, and she has worked steadily since in films such as The Flintstones (1994), Losing Isaiah (1995) and Bulworth (1998). "The range she's capable of is phenomenal," says Flintstones director Brian Levant. "She can go from good girl to vamp like you and I shed socks."
