(CBS SF) – Academy Award-winner Halle Berry just signed up for social media. Making her inaugural entrance into Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday, the 49-year-old actress went with a sexy “au naturel look” by posing topless with her back to the camera.

The former “Extant” actress describes the reason why she dove-in to the social media world on her first Instagram. “I am in awe of photography and its ability to capture and reflect this extraordinary world that we live in.” Berry says.

On both her bio sections on Twitter and Instagram, she quotes Henry David Thoreau “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
