Halle Berry shows off rock-solid abs on social media as she trains for MMA fighter role in new movie: 'I finally got them!'
The 53-year-old 'John Wick 3' actress recently took to Instagram to share her excitement on achieving her goal of getting 'ripped abs' and also encourage her followers to get fit.
Halle Berry's physique is iconic, no doubt. The 53-year-old 'John Wick 3' actress recently took to Instagram to show off some rock-solid abs and encourage her followers to get fit. She said, alongside a photo of herself sweating it out for the glorious abs, "Happy #FitnessFriday, everyone! There’s no better feeling than setting a goal and smashing it."
Berry, who has two children aged 11 and 6, is currently getting in top shape for a role in an upcoming MMA fighter film called 'Bruised', where she probably kicks butt. "One of my goals for #BruisedTheMovie? Ripped Abs - and today? I finally got them, and it feels unbelievable!," said the Oscar-winning actor going on to encourage her followers, that amount to 5.7 million currently, to set the bar high for themselves.
"This #FitnessFriday, I encourage you guys to set your bar. What is your fitness goal? Set the BAR higher than you think, share your goal in the comments and HOLD yourself to it. The work won’t be easy, but that pay off? Worth every damn second," she said.
In the movie, Berry plays the role of a disgraced MMA fighter named Jackie Justice who, according to Deadline "has failed at the one thing she’s ever been good at – fighting. When 6-year-old Manny, the son she walked out on years ago, returns to her doorstep, Jackie has to conquer her own demons, face one of the fiercest rising stars of the MMA world, and ultimately fight to become the mother this kid deserves".
To do the training for the movie, UFC featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega has been brought in to get her in shape. "I've been teaching since I was 16 years old - jiu-jitsu. I'm 28 now, so that's not going to be an issue," Ortega had told TMZ Sports earlier, "Of course, because it's Halle, we're not going to fight. But the whole thing is, jiu-jitsu is a beautiful art. [It's one of] those few arts you can go 100 percent and not get hurt."
