Halle Berry first entered the film world in 1991 when she acted alongside Samuel L. Jackson, in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever, as his crackhead girlfriend, Vivian. That same year Berry took on the role of Natalie in Strictly Business. Then, the caramel-skin beauty landed her first big role in Reginald Hudlin’s sexy “dramedy”Boomerang, in 1992. Since then, Halle has starred in 30 films over the past 21 years.
