Halle Berry

How do you top a post announcing you’re in a hot new relationship — and giving your partner credit for adding “balance” to your life? If you’re Halle Berry, you mark reaching 2 million Instagram followers by posting a squatting selfie. “When 2M followers walk in on you,” she wrote. The Oscar winner, whose feed is loaded with artistic shots, kept it classy(ish). Well, as classy as you can get under the circumstances. It looks styled with everything down to her bottoms around her ankle appearing just so. (Photo: Halle Berry via Instagram)

It’s like those old Candie’s ads with Jenny McCarthy on the pot brought to life! These oversharers are from all walks of life — from goddess Halle Berry to the less surprising Jason Biggs.
