Before her success in television and film, Berry lived in New York City where she had moved to pursue her acting career. She struggled mightily at first and at one point ran out of money and was forced to live in a homeless shelter for some time. Later on in the same year, 1989, her fortunes improved when she cast in the short lived series Living Dolls.


Berry was ranked by People Magazine as the #1 most Beautiful Person in the World in 2003, having been ranked consistently in the top ten several times prior. She continues to be one of Hollywood’s highest paid actresses, often commanding upwards of ten million dollars per film role.
