3. Halle Berry
This silver-screen beauty, known for roles both commercial (the “X-Men” franchise) and critically acclaimed (“Monster’s Ball”), not to mention being the first African-American woman to win an Oscar for Best Actress, is the last person you might guess would have type 2 diabetes.
In fact, she was originally diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (a condition normally found in children) in 1989, at the age of 23. After apparently battling the disease and allegedly weaning herself off insulin, it appears that the actress may have initially been misdiagnosed. In any case, she now puts herself squarely in the type 2 camp.
