Despite being a Golden Globe winner, an Academy Award winner, and one of the most respected actresses, Halle Berry doesn't think too highly of herself. She isn't afraid to laugh at herself.

Berry arrived on the red carpet in a dramatic hairstyle that has become the subject of several memes on the internet. After the event, a fan shared a hilarious clip of rapper Saucy Santana wearing a bob wig.
In the light-hearted video, Santana imitated rapper Nicki Minaj from the song "Out of My Mind" by B.O.B. The fan who uploaded the meme on the night of the award show captioned it, "halle berry tonight."
On Tuesday, the iconic actress retweeted it and playfully responded with two emojis ― a laughing face and a weary face. Her reply received almost 50,000 likes and more than 5,000 retweets from fans.
The dramatic haircut inspired several memes and hilarious comments from netizens.
At the 93rd Academy Awards, Berry stole the spotlight as she walked the red carpet with her new boyfriend, Van Hunt. The "Monster's Ball" actress stunned in an elegant strapless gown in mauve color.
The exquisite Dolce & Gabbana gown featured a flowing train, a plunging neckline, and a gigantic bow at the waist region. However, it was her dramatic hairstyle that had tongues wagging.
Before the ceremony, Berry's hairstylist Sara Seward teased a big chop in a social media post. But fans were shocked to see the 54-year-old rock a short and sharp-angled bob hairstyle with baby bangs.
Many soon took to social media, comparing the hairstyle to Lord Farquaad in the animation "Shrek." Others noted she looked like Johnny Depp's Willy Wonka character and Claire from "Fleabag."
The dramatic haircut inspired several memes and hilarious comments from netizens. However, Berry didn't seem fazed by the remarks. A day after the award show, she took to social media to give fans a close look at her outfit.
The mother-of-two shared several snapshots of her striking fun poses, including one of her and Hunt looking into each other's eyes. The singer also uploaded photos of them preparing for the award show.
