Halle is certainly in control. See what she has to say….

“Don’t stress about your age or fight it. Appreciate the young women who look like you once did, but don’t strive to be like them. You’re moving into a new phase of your life —embrace it. That’s what I hope to do.”

“Someone raised Halle right.  She is gentle, peaceful, and polite.”  Says Tom Hanks

My daughter Nahla, likes to call it as she sees it. Sometimes I cringe when she says certain things, but she is always right on. It’s amazing to watch.” 

“When I started acting 25 years ago, the landscape for women of color was different. I had to carve my own way, and that took thoughtfulness, perseverance, and risk.” 

” I’m a glass-half-full type of person; nowadays you have to be.”

“My style has evolved in a nice way, but everyone has bad moments. Someone just showed me a photo from the ’80s in which I was wearing a polka-dot and flower-print suit with puffy sleeves. At the time I thought, Oh, I am stylin’! But no…” 

” Throughout my career I have been talked out things that I wanted to do, and when I look back I think, I should have followed my instincts. I relied on others to guide me because I thought they knew better. But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to trust myself.”
