Halle Berry says she has slept in a bra since the age of 16 in a bid to keep her assets perky.

The 48-year-old actress has collaborated with Scandale lingerie to launch her own line, available at Target.

And the stunning star revealed in a new interview that her love of intimate wear stems back to adolescence.

“It is because I wear these things all the time, if you don’t want your boobs on your knees, it’s very important,” she told US TV show Extra.

“It’s something I’ve always loved, I mean I have worn a bra and slept in a bra, probably TMI [too much information], since I was 16 years old. My mother taught me the importance of that and taking care of my body on that end, so lingerie and undergarments have been really important to me.”

Halle is mother to seven-year-old Nahla with her ex-partner Gabriel Aubry and 18-month-old son Maceo with husband Olivier Martinez.

And Halle added in the interview that Nahla appears to be following in her footsteps when it comes to her fashion choices.

“She’s into dress up, hair and make-up, fashion shows, she’s a girl, girl, girl, you will not find her in a tree, she’s in the salon with me playing with my makeup and just trying to be all things girly girl,” she said.

Halle has made a move from the big to the small screen with hit show Extant, which is produced by Steven Spielberg.

The actress is currently working on the second season of the programme, and says she’s thrilled that she’s lucky enough to have a job that allows her to take her children with her to work.

“Not everybody is that fortunate, so there’s a play place for my kids to come, and Nahla loves to come drive around on the Paramount golf cart, that’s the place she really gets to drive,” she said.
