Halle Berry hits back at trolls who criticized naked photo

ad 6:

Halle Berry has taken on social media users who made negative comments about her nude Instagram photo.

The Catwoman and X-Men star garnered widespread praise for sharing a naked picture of herself enjoying wine on a balcony.

However, as is the norm with social media, there’s always at least one negative individual who has nothing better to do than troll.

To be fair to the trolls, it’s understandable that they might be envious of Berry. There she is, sipping wine, completely naked, basking in the glorious sunshine, while most of us are stuck at our desks, enduring sweaty commutes on the subway and gazing outside to be met by relentless April showers – need I say more?

Nevertheless, jealousy shouldn’t manifest as petty, hateful social media trolling.

One Instagram user wrote: “Come on, you are 60 years old.”

“Imagine being in your 50s, still posting nudes for attention in menopause when you should be relaxing with the grandkids.

“Aging with dignity is no longer a thing,” another said, as reported by Film News.

Berry responded to the first comment, writing: “And what’s wrong with that! Aging is beautiful and glorious!”

She replied to the second comment: “Did you guys know the heart of a shrimp is located in its head?”

Mic drop

Berry also responded to other followers who praised the photo.

One wrote: “I think it’s tastefully done. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.”

“You reach a certain age, and you can do whatever you wanna do! Freedom is the name of the game,” Berry responded.

“I see! Bosses do what they choose to do,” another added.

Berry replied: “Okay! Do life on your own terms!

Berry has previously spoken out about aging as a woman.

She told AARP: “We’re all going to get older. Our skin is going to shrivel up, and we’re going to look different. I see things changing with my face and body, but I’ve never put all my eggs in that basket.

“I’ve always known that beauty is deeper than the physical body you’re walking around in. That’s going to fade, and I refuse to become someone who just tries to hold onto a youthful face and not embrace what’s most important about being beautiful – how you live your life, how you give back to others, how you connect to people, how you strengthen your mind, body, and soul and nourish yourself, how you give in a meaningful way of yourself. The most beautiful people have something radiating inside.

“Women are told that when we reach a certain age, we’re no longer valuable. I believe the opposite. Society should look at us as jewels as we get older. Because the older women get, the more formidable we are.”
