Halle Berry appeared to have undergone a bit of weight gain when she attended the 95th Academy Awards to present the Award for Best Actress. The Oscar-winning actress looked a bit bulkier and more muscular than she did in recent years, a bit like when she played an MMA fighter in 2021. Halle Berry has not yet revealed how she came to have that weight gain, however, and so people are speculating that she is getting thicker with age.
Halle Berry is one of the most beautiful as well as talented American actresses. She began her career in the glamor industry as a model and entered several beauty contests. After she finished as the first runner-up in the Miss USA pageant and came in sixth in the Miss World 1986, she started acting.
She got her breakthrough film role in the romantic comedy Boomerang alongside Eddie Murphy, and then went on to do The Flintstones and Bulworth as well as the television film Introducing Dorothy Dandridge. She even won a Primetime Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award for the latter. During the 2000s, she successfully established herself as one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood during the 2000s.
She also thrived in regard to critical acclaim. Her performance of a struggling widow in the romantic drama Monster’s Ball earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress in 2001. She became the first and only black woman to win the award. Up until before Michelle Yeoh won the award, she was also the only woman of color to have won the award.
She recently attended the 2023 Oscars to present the Award for Best Actress and people made the distinction in how she looked now compared to how she looked back when she was there to win the award. It’s noticeable that she had some weight gain since then. She looks much bulkier and even a bit more muscular than before. Let’s learn more about Halle Berry’s weight gain!

Halle Berry’s Weight Gain: The Actress Seemed to Appear a Little Bigger and Bulkier in the 2023 Oscars!
Halle Berry (@halleberry) recently attended the 95th Academy Awards and dazzled everyone with her looks. There to present the award for Best Actress, she arrived with a glamorous look that had everyone stunned. Dressed in a Tamara Ralph gown on the red carpet and her hair styled in waves, she looked every inch an Old Hollywood glamor for the big night.
Halle Berry’s appearance at the awards ceremony and her presenting the Award for Best Actress to the first woman of color in 21 years since she last won it herself made people draw the distinction of how she looked before when she won the award versus now when she was there to present it. And as was waiting to be discovered, people realized that she has had a weight gain since then.
It’s been more than two decades since then. Of course, you can’t expect anyone to look the same as they did then. But Halle Berry has gained not just since then, but she looked a little bigger than she had in recent years. She, according to people, looked the way she did in 2021 when she played an MMA fighter in Bruised. She had bulked up for the role and gotten muscular which made it seem like she had undergone a weight gain then.
Bruised, which tells the story of an MMA fighter, played by Halle Berry, was released in 2021, and now the star has released Behind Bruised, a documentary detailing the work that went into the project. Alongside a series of impressive photos, Halle wrote: “I had this BURNING desire to tell the story of “Bruised” and there were so many days I felt I was going to die if I couldn’t.
Now, the Academy Award winner looks like she did then. But, if you are thinking that Halle Berry might have had weight gain for some roles as she did for Bruised then, you are wrong because she is against putting on pounds for films. She once revealed that if she had to gain weight for a movie, she would prioritize her health under those circumstances and not do that because of some pre-existing conditions. In an interview with Wendy Williams, she said,
My heart would say yes because I feel like I would do anything for my craft, but my brain would say no because I’m diabetic and what that might do to me on a health level could be really dangerous, so that’s probably the real reason I wouldn’t.
Halle Berry also wouldn’t have weight gain on account of her motherhood. She is much less willing to take physical risks since she became a mother. She once said that taking care of her health and keeping her weight at a certain level is a part of taking care of herself and being healthy, and she wouldn’t take risks of gaining or losing weight because she had become a mum.
Halle Berry may not have done it for a film role, but she sure has undergone a bit of weight gain. Nothing too drastic and she still looks fit, just a bit bulkier and muscular. She has not revealed how she came to look like that so, many people are speculating that she is just getting thicker with age.
