Welcome to the second installment of Famous Fridays! This week's actress has enjoyed fame and success from movies including X-Men, Die Another Day, and Monster's Ball.

That's right, it's

Halle Berry

Halle Berry was born in 1966. Though not diagnosed until she was 23 years old, she lives with Type 1 diabetes. In 1989, while doing a taping of "Lifesize Dolls", which I guess was some popular TV show with beautiful women, Berry fell into a diabetic coma.

When experiencing a diabetic coma, a person's blood sugar levels reach such a high level (sometimes as high as 800mg/dl or higher!!!!) that they actually pass out and need to be instantly hospitalized. She actually didn't wake up for 7 days.

And I thought I had it bad. Click here to read more about Berry and her struggle with diabetes.
