  Who is Halle Berry?
Updated 22 July 2004, 18.37
Halle Berry after winning the best actress Oscar
Since winning a best actress Oscar in 2002, Halle Berry has been a busy girl.

She starred with Pierce Brosnan in the 20th Bond movie, Die Another Day, as well as returning to her role as Storm in X2, the sequel to X-Men.

You'll next see her on screen playing Catwoman, one of Batman's arch enemies.

She's also voicing a character in a new animated film called Robots, alongside Star Wars star Ewan McGregor.

But she hasn't just been around for the last couple of years, making her first film 11 years ago.

Halle Berry plays Catwoman
Since then she's been in around 20 films, and although lots of them have been mainly for older people, she did appear in big-screen version of telly cartoon The Flintstones.

She has often been praised by critics for the quality of her acting, but has now won the ultimate prize, an Oscar.

She was born in 1968 and was a successful model before turning to acting, first on TV and then on film.
