Occupation: Actress
Biggest accomplishment this year: Reprising her role as Storm in the forthcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past

Halle Berry seems to get better with age, and the now 46-year-old has not shown any signs of slowing down. She has starred this year in the ensemble flop Movie 43 as well as The Call, in which she played a 911 operator trying to stop a killer. She'll be reprising her role as Storm in X-Men: Days of Future Past, filming now and scheduled to be released in 2014. (Hopefully it'll make up for all that lesser work.) Berry's used her platform to try her hand at activism as well, appearing earlier this year in a spot for Gucci's "Chime for Change" campaign that aims to raise money and awareness for issues impacting women.
