Reynolds & Hearn, 2002 - Biography & Autobiography - 96 pages
Born in Cleveland in 1968, Halley Berry first gained the public’s attention in 1986 as a runner-up in the Miss USA Pageant. When she turned to acting, her career took off with a key role in Spike Lee’s 1991 film Jungle Fever. It wasn’t until 1999, however, with her Golden Globe-winning performance in Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, that she began to make a real impact in the film world. In 2001, she was cast in the smash-hit X-Men, and in 2002, she delivered her extraordinary, Oscar-winning performance in Monster’s Ball. Berry next crossed paths with Pierce Brosnan in the James Bond extravaganza Die Another Day. In this book, Daniel O’ Brien gives us a fascinating glimpse of an actress on her way to the top. The author’s most recent books are The Hannibal Files and Cameron Diaz.
