Halle Berry, 53, pulls up her shirt on Instagram: 'Ripped abs...I finally got them'


Halle Berry, 53, keeps epitomizing ageless beauty with an Instagram photo of her rock-solid abs.

“Happy #FridayFitness, everyone!” the director and star of the upcoming MMA film Bruised, wrote on Instagram. “There’s no better feeling than setting a goal and smashing it.” Sharing that one of her work goals was ripped abs (anyone relate?), Berry wrote, “And today? I finally got them, and it feels unbelievable!”

To her awestruck fans Berry added, “I encourage you guys to set your bar. What is your fitness goal? Set the BAR higher than you think, share your goal in the comments and HOLD yourself to it. The work won’t be easy, but that pay off? Worth every damn second.

“YAASS! U DID THAT ISH,” wrote Vivica A. Fox. “Gains!!” applauded Michael B. Jordan, and Mindy Kaling added, “Hello!”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bruised is the first film that Berry has directed. The mother-of-two will also star in the flick, playing an MMA (mixed marital-arts) fighter named Jackie “Justice” who reunites with her abandoned son.

Berry has made fitness — and it’s jaw-dropping results — an Instagram theme, posting photos of her sweat-soaked workouts, which personal trainer Peter Lee Thomas told USA Today often require twice-a-day sessions including Jiu-Jitsu, shadowboxing, and pull-ups, specifically in training for the May film John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum.

If Berry is 53, the future is looking up.
