She was the first African-American to represent America at the Miss World pageant.
She has won enough beauty titles to last a lifetime.
And she has an Oscar (Monster's Ball) to her credit.
But Halle Berry would happily give up her beauty!
People magazine reports the Catwoman saying, 'Let me tell you something -- being thought of as a beautiful woman has spared me nothing in life. No heartache, no trouble. Love has been difficult. Beauty is essentially meaningless and it is always transitory.'
Halle is one of Hollywood's most well-dressed and stylish women. She has also acted in films like Catwoman and Die Another Day which show off her elegant body.
Halle also came strongly down on the human obsession with youth.
'Personally, I'm really saddened by the way women mutilate their faces today in search of that,' she said. 'There is this plastic, copycat look evolving and that's frightening to me. It's really insane and I feel sad that's what society is doing to women.'
