It took Halle Berry a minute to join social media, but she's more than made up for it.

The actress debuted on Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday with photo of herself topless in a thicket of bamboo, shot from the back. She opened with "Hi everyone."

"I'm looking forward to sharing our world through images that reflect my emotions and perceptions," the caption read. "I am in awe of photography and its ability to capture and reflect this extraordinary world that we live in."

Needless to say, folks were excited.

Berry promised fans much more.

"I'm excited to share with you my love of nature, the arts, fashion and much more in the hopes that the images will inspire, promote conversation and bring you joy," her caption continued.
