Halle Berry wants a wild night of clubbing this Halloween (31Oct12), and she is determined to go unnoticed by wearing a head-to-toe Egyptian mummy costume.
The Monster's Ball star is planning a spot of trick-or-treating with her four-year-old daughter Nahla, and will then cover herself up completely for a more "adult" night on the town with her pals.
She tells talk show host Jay Leno, "You wanna know what I am this year? I am a cupcake. I am a cupcake by day and then I'm a different costume by night. After she goes to bed, I go out for my adult Halloween and I'm a different thing. The adult thing is I get dressed up like a mummy, so therefore every part of my body is covered except for my eyes.
"I get to go out with my friends and go out to clubs and just lose my mind. Nobody knows that it's me so I get to do all the things I wish I could do but I can't do because it would be on the Internet the next day. So I get to go out and be me!"
Berry also admits she is strict when it comes to letting Nahla indulge in sweet treats on Halloween, adding, "I don't let her keep the candy. It's too much! What kid needs a bag load of candy?
"I get the candy and I go through it and take out the bad stuff and then I dole the rest out throughout the year. I hide it, and then when she needs a little candy, then I give her a little bit. I don't let her have it all at once. She doesn't know it's stale!"
