Pregnant Halle Berry Says Filming X-Men Was a “Constant Challenge”

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, “I 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.”

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 wasn’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.

“There’s no secret, I’ve just lived a healthy lifestyle,” Berry continues. “I 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.”

Okay, so apparently this is just yet another reason to wish we were Halle Berry.

Halle Berry Slaps Cease and Desist Order on Auction House

Mom-to-be for the second time Halle Berry should have better things on her mind these days than wrangling with an auction house. But due to a property mix-up she had to throw down…slightly.

Halle had to nix a Canadian auction advertised as the sale of 400 items belonging to the Oscar winner because none of the stuff is hers.

This past weekend Berry’s attorney sent a cease and desist letter to The Montreal Auction House to inform them that none of the items in their possession were ever owned or used by Halle. The rare and prized collectibles include a nail clipper, hairbrush and an antique couch.

When it was uncovered that the storage stuff actually belongs to Halle’s former boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, auctioneers had to scramble to postpone the auction, originally set for this past Monday. The new rescheduled date is July 21.

So, anyone interested in cool, bacheloresque zebra skin rug owned by Gabriel? (That’s also one of the auction items available.) It can be yours for the right price.

Halle Berry Turned Ray J Down

Ray J, while known as a singer and a reality star, is also know as a celebrity ladies man. But there’s one celebrity heart he couldn’t capture: Halle Berry’s.

Appearing on the Wendy Williams Show, Brandy’s younger brother discussed the usual topic: Kim Kardashian. Specifically, he was asked about the famous sex tape the two made and whether he owned a copy to which the former For The Love of Ray J star said he didn’t. Then the topic turned to dating celebrities, which Ray says he is done with because: “It’s too much.”

Things got interesting, though, when Wendy inquired if he’d ever been turned down by a celebrity, and he said yeah: Halle Berry. “She probably doesn’t even remember because I was asking her questions on the red carpet,” he said. “This was maybe three, four years ago. I walked up to her and I just was like, ‘You’re so pretty, I just interviewed you, I’d love to take you out on a date’. All she did was go, ‘Ahh.’”

Had Halle said yes, would the world have been blessed with a Ray/Halle sex tape instead of one with Kim K? We’ll never know… because Ms. Berry was smart enough to just say no.

What Do Halle Berry, Boobs and Guacamole Have in Common?

Movie 43 has been getting a lot of buzz for being the “Biggest Cast Ever Assembled For the Most Outrageous Comedy Ever Made,” according to the film’s tag line, but director Peter Farrelly revealed a scene from movie that just propelled it from intriguing to must-see.

In an interview on Redditt, the gross-out comedy king revealed Halle Berry, who stars in a segment of Movie 43, surprised him more than any another actor he’s ever worked with. Keep in mind, this is the guy who got Cameron Diaz’s hair to stand up straight in There’s Something About Mary.

“I was a little nervous about meeting her because her scene is so outrageous, and I was afraid she might get on the set and balk,” Farrelly explained of the Oscar winner, 46. “Not only did she not, but she thought the scene was too soft and asked us to amp it up a little.”

And Farrelly delivered, at one point getting Berry to dip her bare breast in a bowl of guacamole for the segment called “Truth or Dare.”

“She couldn’t have been more fun to work with,” Farrelly gushes. We couldn’t be more excited Berry is exploring her funny side more, after she let loose during the press tour for Cloud Atlas. Berry continues her comedy streak with the lead role in Shoe Addicts Anonymous, about a woman who joins a support group for the Louboutin-obsessed (side note: where do we sign up?).

As for the guacamole, after seeing Movie 43 we’ll probably never look at chips and dip the same way again.

Halle Berry’s Sense of Humor Comes Out to Play

Halle Berry isn’t always in the press for the best reasons, so when the actress let’s her, uh, hair down and gets playful with the media, it’s a nice reminder that she does in fact have a sense of humor.

On a press tour for her upcoming film Cloud Atlas, the gorgeous Berry is dropping LOL-worthy quotes like candy. Just today, Berry revealed a surprising famous relative in her family tree, and also discussed the curious places her new film has taken her as an actor.

“You wanna know who I’m related to?” Berry said excitedly in a video interview on Extra. “Sarah Palin!” The actress wouldn’t (or couldn’t) specify exactly how she and the former VP candidate share blood, but insists it’s true. “In some twisted way…somebody sent me this information that she was my distant [relative].” (Trivia: her Cloud Atlas co-star Tom Hanks is a distant cousin of Abraham Lincoln).

At another point, the actress sat down with EurWeb.com to discuss her crazy, boundary-stretching roles (that’s right, roles) in Cloud Atlas. One of the close to half-dozen characters Berry plays is that of an Asian man. “I have to say I did love being turned into [Korean physicist] Dr. Ovid,” Berry gushes. “Never before in my life would I ever have thought anybody anywhere would hire me to be an Asian man for any reason.” Yeah, us neither.

Well, it’s always nice to see Berry crack a smile between paparazzi beat downs and battling her ex Gabriel Aubry for custody of their 3-year-old Nahla. Hope we continue to see more of this light-hearted Halle as the promo tour of Cloud Atlas continues.

Halle Berry, Gabriel Aubry Reunite at Pumpkin Patch

It sounds like the premise for a Nora Ephron-style romantic comedy, but the tense reunion between Halle Berry and her baby daddy Gabriel Aubry at a West Hollywood pumpkin patch was anything but. The unfriendly exes barely made eye contact with each other when Halle picked up their daughter Nahla, who had spent the weekend with her dad.

The professional paparazzi at X17 Online snapped Berry embracing her adorable daughter, but the warm-and-fuzzy surroundings couldn’t ease the visible tension between the actress and Aubry, who are bitterly fighting for custody of the 4-year-old. Perhaps the presence of the shutter hounds proves Berry’s point to the court, whom she is hoping will grant her the right to move Nahla to Paris: Los Angeles is far too pap-infested a place to raise a normal, well-adjusted child.

Perhaps someone should remind Berry and Aubry that their vicious and very public fighting is doing far more damage to their daughter than a zoom lens ever could?

Halle Berry Might Die Like Princess Diana, Lawyer Says

Will Halle Berry face the same deadly fate as Princess Diana if she moves to France?

That’s what Gabriel Aubry’s lawyer said in court. Halle and Gabriel are locked in a court fight over whether Halle should be allowed to move to France with the ex-couple’s daughter Nahla. Halle wants to move because of strict no-paparazzi laws, leaving their child better protected from aggressive photogs.

But Gabriel’s lawyer said that would be dangerous for the actress because France is where Princess Diana died in a crash caused by paparazzi chasing her car.

We can’t say how well that argument is because, under French laws, paparazzi can’t photograph celebrities if they don’t want to be photographed.

But when you’re a father fighting to keep your child close to you, any argument is good and reasonable.

Court Psychologist: Halle Berry is a Better Parent Than Gabriel Aubry

Published by Natasha Fierce on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at 10:00 am.

It’s hard to talk about winners in the never-ending, messy, ugly, bitter and time-consuming custody battle between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry over their 3-year-old daughter Nahla, but Berry scored a victory today when a court psychologist deemed her the better parent.

TMZ reports that an evaluation has been written and submitted to the judge presiding over the custody battle between the actress and her ex, and the results are crystal clear: while there’s no doubt Aubry loves his daughter and she loves him, Nahla is better off in Berry’s custody. The report allegedly raises issues about Gabriel’s ability to care for Nahla, in part because of “personal issues” which are not specified.

This is a huge win for Berry, who is trying to move her family to Paris to get away from the intrusive paparazzi, among other things. The French capital is also home to Berry’s fiance Olivier Martinez. Assuming the judge rules in favor of Halle’s move, Aubry would be allowed visitation rights.

But there’s no denying that this victory came at a huge cost. According to reports, Nahla was subject to extensive interviewing by the court evaluator t0 determine who should have primary custody of the child. That can’t be good for a three year old. We trust Halle is trying to do what’s right for her child, but when will these two stop the madness?

Halle Berry Brawls With Paparazzi Outside Nahla’s School

She looked like a ray of sunshine in her teal maxi dress and spiral curls, but some paparazzi learned that if you get too close to Halle Berry, you gon’ get burned. The actress threw down on some paps who were assembled outside of her daughter Nahla’s school yesterday, we’re guessing because they got too close to the lil’ cub.

Berry looked visibly upset, like she was cursing up a storm, and at one point leaned into the shutterbug’s car window and pointing her finger in his face.

“It is inappropriate for these people to stalk a child’s school everyday,” a source close to Berry tells E! News. ”They pushed too far [today],” the source added. “Halle felt that her daughter was being threatened. Having words with someone who is stalking your family is not out of line.”

This isn’t the first time Berry has taken the paps to task. In 2008, she filed a criminal complaint against a photo agency that was circulating pictures the actress claims were taken of her and Nahla in their backyard.

We’re sure Berry is on a short fuse these days what with all the ex-drama in her life. Nahla’s father Gabriel Aubrey dragged her back to court last week, asking for $500,000 in attorney fees and keeping the flame lit under their ongoing custody battle.

Hopefully the Dark Tide actress can focus on something more fun for a while…like planning her wedding to her hot little French fry Olivier Martinez?

As for the paparazzi, next time, wear a helmet.

Halle Berry’s Ex Gabriel Aubry Looking to “Substantially Increase” Spousal Support Payments

Published by Natasha Fierce on Friday, May 4, 2012 at 10:59 am.

Gabriel Aubry is trying to squeeze Halle Berry like orange juice. Berry’s ex, who is father to her daughter Nahla, dragged her back to court yesterday and asked a judge to order her to “substantially increase” his monthly paycheck.

Luckily for Halle, the judge had no time to hear Aubry’s sorry pleas for cash, and granted a continuance. This is just the latest scuffle between the bitter exes, who have made a nearly monthly habit of standing before a judge to complain about each other, claim the other is an unfit parent and fight for full custody of the three-and-a-half year old. Sad.

We love how Aubry, who is a male model and actor, is trying to upgrade his seat on the gravy train right around the time Berry is making moves to re-locate to France with her daughter and her hunky fiance Olivier Martinez. Jealous, much?
