Halle Berry did her schooling at All-White Public School; she was often discriminated at an early age. Her early attacks with racism greatly weighted on her passion to excel. For a short span, she attended Cleveland’s Cuyahoga Community College, where she studied journalism. Subsequently, Berry dismissed her idea of a career in news reporting and dropped out before getting degree.
She left her home and shifted to Chicago and then put up in New York in order to pursue her modeling career in 1994. Berry's first Silver screen break came the very same year when she was cast as Samuel L. Jackson's drug-addicted girlfriend in Spike Lee's critically acclaimed film, Jungle Fever. In the same year, she did the role of “Sharon Stone" in the live-action version of The Flintstones as a Stone Age seductress. As of 2016, she remains the only Afro-American actress to have been prized an Oscar, which she won for her character in the 2002 film Monster's Ball. Playboy magazine named her among the "100 Sexiest Women of the Century" in 1998.
