Halle Berry is gorgeous, talented and a history-making Academy Award winner, but even she admits that pregnancy gives a woman major day-to-day limitations.
Berry, who is now expecting her second child, a baby boy with husband Olivier Martinez, says that being in the family way this time around made reprising her role as Storm in the upcoming movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past a little harder than usual.
The 46-year-old actress kept it real with U.K.-based magazine Total Film, â€śI wasn’t in [the movie] as much as I was meant to be. [Pregnancy] kind of colored what my involvement could be, which was why I was one of the first ones in and the first ones out.â€ť
Another issue she faced during the blockbuster production was her rapidly morphing figure. “My ever-growing belly was posing a constant challenge!” she says. “What I could do was getting more limited, so the role I play is so different from what it could have been, due to my surprise pregnancy.”
But it wasnâ€™t all so bad. Berry does credits her great workout regime and good living habits for making the overall body changes and her work load transition a wee bit easier for her.
â€śThere’s no secret, I’ve just lived a healthy lifestyle,â€ť Berry continues. â€śI only work out like three times a week, 30 minutes a pop. That and good clean living. As I’m getting older it’s just paying off.â€ť
Okay, so apparently this is just yet another reason to wish we were Halle Berry.
