Halle Berry is a timeless classic and she never seems to age!
Like, at all!
Sure, the actress may have two children and is almost 50-years-old, but hot damn! Needless to say, she's definitely a role model for many, if not all, women in the world!

As perfect as her life may seem, the star opened up about how difficult it is not to give into the pressure of plastic surgery!
She is in the entertainment industry, after all.
Halle talked to beauty guru Bobbi Brown about some of the things she has to deal with on the daily — plastic surgery and aging gracefully.
She said on resisting getting plastic surgery done:
"It is pressure. When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, 'To stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing?' I won't lie and tell you that those things don't cross my mind, because somebody is always suggesting it to me. 'You know if you just did a little bit of this and that, lift this up, then this would be a little bit better.' It's almost like crack that people are trying to push on you. That's what I feel like.
I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self. Aging is natural, and that's going to happen to all of us. I think of those women that I thought aged so beautifully, like Lena Horn.
Even how Jane Fonda is aging — I don't know what she has or hasn't done, but she looks beautiful as she's going about her way. I just want to always look like myself, even if that's an older version of myself. I think when you do too much of that cosmetic stuff, you become somebody else in a way."
She continued on to talk about aging gracefully and how we all can embrace that.
"We have to stop wanting to look like that decade before. We have to stop coveting that. Let it go and embrace it now and really be OK. It's easy to say, I guess, but that's the goal."
It's certainly easy to say, but once you embrace the beauty of aging, there's no going back!
And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, the actress revealed she's not really big on celebrating the holiday of lurve!

The 48-year-old gets candid about February 14, revealing:
"Here is the thing. I don't really do Valentine's Day. I'm like this rare woman, I don't really subscribe too much to Valentine's Day. That's just honest. I'll tell my husband, 'I'd rather you make Valentine's Day any random day in October, because you just want to tell me you love me. Not because the world tells you, 'This is the day you're supposed to profess your love.' Be more original! Pick any other day.'"
If more women thought the same way Halle did, this Hallmark holiday would be out of business!
Not celebrating Valentine's just puts that much more pressure on the guys! LOLz!
