Halle Berry has delivered what might be her finest performance since Monster thanks to a spoken word cover of Britney Spears classic Oops, I Did It Again.

Berry is clearly getting in the mood for Spears’ comeback with new album Glory, treating W Magazine to her best rendition of Spears’ 2000 single.

The Oscar-winning actress didn’t don the iconic Spears catsuit for the occasion, but her red dress feels like a neat homage to the pop star’s attire (even if it was coincidental).

Berry calls on all her acting experience to give lines like “I’m not that innocent” sultry depths of emotion that you just don’t get when sung through a high-octane pop hit.

Outside of Berry’s Britney cover, the Hollywood star will be returning to movies as the lead in thriller Kidnap, while she’s also slated to star as director of the CIA in sequel Kingsman: The Golden Sequel.

A one-time Bond Girl leaping over to another cool-as-hell spy series? Sounds good to us.
