Halle Berry Talks Romance & Career with InStyle
The 46-year-old actress looked ravishing in a bright red Calvin Klein Collection dress for the Giampaolo Sgura shot front page while dishing on everything from gradually falling in love with her fiance Olivier Martinez to her acting career.
Highlights from Miss Berry's interview are as follows:
On her fiance Olivier Martinez:
"When I first met Olivier, there wasn't the initial 'I'm in love!' It was something that grew more gradually-and it feels more real because of that. [Marriage] is another one of those never-say-never things. I'm a hopeless romantic, and I won't stop till I get it right!"
On aging in Hollywood:
"Throughout my career I have been talked out of things I wanted to do, and when I look back I think, I should have followed my instincts. I relied on others to guide me because I thought they knew better. But as I've gotten older, I've learned to trust myself. Don't stress about your age or fight it. Appreciate the young women who look like you once did, but don't strive to be like them. You're moving into a new phase of your life-embrace it. That's what I hope to do."
On not being defined by her hairstyle:
"I think I am at my best when my hair is short. It's easier to take care of and more of who I am. Women are conditioned to think we need long hair. I see that happening with my daughter. She is so in love with her hair right now. She says, 'Look, Mommy-it's so long!" As women, we think it defines us, and we learn that at a young age."
