Halle Berry remembers how much filming The Flintstones rocked.

The Oscar winner reflected on her performance as Miss Stone in the 1994 movie in an Instagram video, and noted how her role was a “big step” for Black women in the entertainment industry.

Though she said she hasn’t seen The Flintstones in 20 years, Berry, 57, was excited to revisit the movie, with fans constantly messaging her about it.

“Being a Black woman in Bedrock seemed like a little thing but, you know, The Flintstones was the fabric of our culture,” reflected the actress.

She added, “I knew that this was a big step forward for Black people, Black women especially.”

Berry played Fred Flintstone’s (John Goodman) seductive secretary, Sharon Stone, in the live-action remake of the 1960s cartoon series.

The real-life Sharon Stone was reportedly supposed to portray the character of the same name, but was unable to due to scheduling conflicts. Berry wound up getting the role instead.

The Cloud Atlas actress said in her video that it was important for there to be a Black character in The Flintstones live-action movie, and realized its impact.

She continued, “While it was silly, and it was over the top and campy, I knew then how important this little part in this big movie actually would be.”

“You guys message me every year about The Flintstones film so I thought I’d do something special for the 30th anniversary 🦴 🤍,” she captioned her Instagram video.

Berry concluded, "Love you all for loving Miss Stone all this time."
