Halle Berry made EW’s Power List

Age 37

She’s the second Bond girl to win an Oscar, but she’s the first to land a 007 spin-off (the in-development ”Jinx”). In fact, Berry collects franchises the way other action stars collect Hummers. Along with ”Jinx” and the ”X-Men” series, she’ll add the much-anticipated ”Catwoman” to her résumé next year. She’s also found time for projects like this fall’s ghostly ”Gothika”; Chris Wedge’s ”Ice Age” follow-up, ”Robots”; an Oprah-approved ABC adaptation of Zora Neale Hurston’s ”Their Eyes Were Watching God”; and the heavy drama ”October Squall.” Apparently, the words ”sleep” and ”vacation” are not part of her vocabulary.
