In a recent behind-the-scenes selfie shared to over seven million followers on Instagram, the 55-year-old dazzled with a touch of gold eyeshadow, navy and black cat eye liner, and shimmering gold glitter eyebrows.

She brought the look together with a black bob styled with blunt, razor-cut bangs.

While it’s natural for fans to assume that Berry is gearing up for a big blockbuster role, the look is actually from a recent commercial for Caesars Sportsbook, Hello! notes.

After posting the photo, Berry revealed that she felt quite powerful while in character as the Egyptian queen.

“Half woman. half warrior. delicate and strong,” she captioned the stunning snap.

One fan added: “And absolutely beautiful.”

“All fierce,” another fan declared.

Another user suggested that she was channeling another extraordinary woman by calling her “Nefertiti,” a queen of the 18th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt who rules with her husband Pharaoh Akhenaten.

And yet another insisted that Berry seek out a similar role, noting: "So when does the new Cleopatra movie drop because you are sending me Egyptian Queen vibes?!?!"

The commercial was actually shared by Caesars Sportsbook back in December.

In the ad, Berry, starring as Cleo, dons the same makeup and wig.

However, we get to see a glimpse of the full glamorous outfit that includes a deep plunging neckline, metallic gold cape, and plenty of gold statement jewelry.

Her co-star in the ad, JB Smoove, appears as Cleopatra’s counterpart, Caesar.
