Halle Berry has had so many memorable roles, but she won an army of new fans when she played Giacinta ‘Jinx’ Johnson in the 2002 James Bond movie, Die Another Day. In one scene, Halle-slash-Jinx wore an orange bikini that’s now become an iconic movie look.
Well, the 53-year-old actress just shared a snap on Instagram of herself wearing an orange bikini and straw hat on the beach, and it’s giving off some serious throwback ‘Bond Girl’ vibes. ‘Never been a shady beach. 😂,’ she wrote in the caption.
In the pic, Halle is working a suit with belt-like straps under her chest and across her hips. Her abs and legs look super toned—in fact, she might be even more fit now than she was when she filmed Die Another Day18 years ago.
It was definitely not lost on people, who flooded the comments with props. ‘You look amazing!!!🔥🔥🔥 ‘ one fan wrote. ‘Absolutely stunning,’ another said.
Halle has made it clear that she works hard for that body. She’s been rolling out Phit Talks and Fitness Fridays for years now, and she regularly shares posts about the tough workouts she does with her trainer, Peter Lee Thomas.
But Halle told Women’s Health in May that she doesn’t necessarily spend hours working out. Pre-pandemic, Halle said that she and Peter worked out together for close to 90 minutes. But, she said, they did a lot of ‘chit chat’ during breaks. ‘Half the time our sweat sessions were just 20 minutes long,’ she said. ‘If anything, I’ve learned that a 20-minute workout can totally knock you on your butt.’
So, Halle said she’s now big on doing circuits of five or six exercises and ‘churning through one after another, going as hard as I can for a set amount of time so I don’t have to count reps.’ Sometimes they do all bodyweight moves; sometimes she uses things like ankle weights.
And that is how Halle Berry looks like that in an orange bikini.
