A few weeks ago, Halle showed Jimmy Fallon how to roll during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in New York City.

“There was one offer that I got to do Monster’s Ball, and I had just given birth to Sasha. I saw [Halle] win the Academy Award, I was happy for her, but given a different set of circumstances, I might have done that role,” Vanessa Williams recently shared to Huffington Past on passing on Halle‘s role in Monster’s Ball.

FYI: Halle is wearing Dita Eyewear sunglasses and Reef Leather Uptown in Black flip flops.
