Halle Berry uploaded two throwback images to remind her fans of her classic look to the 2000 premiere of “X-Men” as she marked the 20th anniversary of the franchise.
Although it has been two decades since the premiere of the “X-Men” franchise, many fans remember the event like it was yesterday. For those who have no recollection of it, Hally Berry had a couple of images that she used to jog their memories.

Halle most recently made headlines after she opted out of playing the role of a transgender person in an upcoming movie.
Along with the images, which were used to mark the 20th anniversary of the “X-Men” premiere, the now-53-year-old actress wrote:
“Since you asked… a bikini can ABSOLUTELY be a top if it’s bedazzled and coupled with belly chain. OK?”
While one image was a group shot that featured Rebecca Romijn hugging Famke Janssen, the second photo was a personal snap that saw Berry standing akimbo.
Inquisitr added that the “Catwoman” star also shared a collage of her character, Storm, rocking different colors and styles of wigs, on Instagram.
Through the caption, Berry asked her followers to choose the Storm look “that truly snatched,” alongside the hashtag “#WigWars” and a laughing/crying emoji. It would be recalled that her character in the superhero movie is an old-time member of the “X-Men” who has the power to control the weather.
The actress featured in all four installments — “X-Men,” “X2,” “X-Men: The Last Stand” and “X-Men: Days of Future Past” — of the beloved film franchise.
Berry most recently made headlines after she opted out of playing the role of a transgender person in an upcoming movie. Variety reported that the actress decided to turn down the role after she was attacked by people online following the revelation that she misgendered a character. She said:
“[It’s] a character where the woman is a trans character, so she’s a woman that transitioned into a man. She’s a character in a project I love that I might be doing.”
After the backlash, Berry stated that she was pulling out of the project because “the transgender community should undeniably have the opportunity to tell their own stories.”
She thanked fans for enlightening her and promised to learn from her mistakes moving forward.
Berry’s action was once again met with mixed views from her followers and fans who made their opinions known on social media.
