While Frankel's pageant career ended with her run-in with Berry, the Catwoman star went on to win first runner-up in the Miss USA Pageant, and came in sixth place in the Miss World Pageant in 1986 -- making history as the first African American contestant to compete for the title.
Though Berry inarguably fared well in the pageant circuit, her looks eventually became something to overcome in her career as an actress.
"I came from the world of beauty pageants and modeling and right away when people heard that, I got discounted as an actor," Berry told W magazine. "So, I had the job of trying to eliminate that part of my persona. And I took on roles early on that really didn't rely on my physical self at all, and that was a good way to sort of get some credibility within my industry."
These days, Berry has no problem embracing her beauty, recently sharing a sexy bikini shot on Instagram.
