Halle Berry will reportedly carry the Olympic flame down the Croisette in Cannes.

The US actress, 57, is set to display the torch in Cannes on Tuesday ahead of the Paris Olympics in July.

A source told Page Six, Berry will “make her way through from 11am to 1pm local time”, with the famous French Riviera boulevard currently taken over by the Cannes Lions festival.

The insider added the festival will be “shut down temporarily” for Academy Award-winning actor’s torch run.

The Olympic torch relay has been taking place for every Summer Games since Berlin in 1936. The torch was lit on April 16 with a special ceremony at the Greek archaeological site of Olympia.

The torch has been making its way to Paris by way of relay since.
