Halle Berry is opening up about her first kiss.

The Oscar winner, 54, sat down with her good friend, fashion stylist Lindsay Flores, for a Bad & Booshy episode on Instagram Thursday where she said, "My first kiss was a girl."

"I had this boyfriend named LaShawn Boyd and I wanted to French kiss him," Berry recalled. "But I didn't know how to French kiss, so I got my best girlfriend at the time to show me how to French kiss, so I could French kiss him."

"So she came over to my house and kissed me for like 30 minutes," she said. "Literally showed me how to French kiss a boy. And then the next night, I went and French kissed LaShawn Boyd."

When Flores asked Berry which kiss was better, the actress said, "LaShawn Boyd."

Berry has long moved on from her childhood crush and is currently dating musician Van Hunt.

The actress shared photos of their recent snowy getaway last week in which Hunt, 50, was seen wearing an iridescent ski suit, while another photo showed the two wearing face masks as they bundled up and huddled close for a selfie.

In September, a source told PEOPLE the pair had been seeing each other for "several months," and the musician had already met the actress's son Maceo-Robert, 7, and daughter Nahla, 12.

"They are spending a lot of time at Halle's Malibu house," said the insider. "She really seems to enjoy the quiet time. Van has met her kids, so it seems pretty serious."

"Both are very successful and smart, and they seem to be in a mature relationship," the latter insider continued. "It seems like a really good match."
