Oscar winner Halle Berry once stayed in a homeless shelter in her early 20s.
When she first moved to Chicago to become an actress, Berry ran out of money, and her mother decided the best thing would be to not send her daughter more cash.
During these struggling times, the actress acknowledges, she stayed in a homeless shelter.
In an interview with Star Pulse, Berry said:
It taught me how to take care of myself and that I could live through any situation, even if it meant going to a shelter for a small stint, or living within my means, which were meager. I became a person who knows that I will always make my own way.
