There are those who can turn back the clock with their youthful hearts and looks, and then there’s Halle Berry.
On Sunday, the Oscar-winning actress made 56 look like the new 36 when she posted a thank-you message and photo to all the birthday wishes, including some of her celebrity friends and her beau Van Hunt.
She confessed that she “felt so much gratitude and love on this birthday!” in the caption, which she laced with a ‘WOW!’ at the end.

The lead actress can be seen sitting back dressed in a deep black lace ensemble that helped show off her cleavage and overall fabulous figure.
Her short curly locks, which had been purple for the past few days, are now a faded blonde, with the exception of the side, which is closer to dark brown or black.
In a sweet Instagram birthday post, Berry’s beau shared a series of photos and videos of his lover doing everything from wearing a short black wig in a long black coat to robbing in front of the camera with a fake mustache.
‘Hi honey. It’s your birthday, and against your wishes I’m shouting it to the mountaintops, celebrating with the world the amazing, loving, funny and life-giving force that you are,” Hunt, 52, wrote in the caption.
