Halle Berry Shuts down Pregnancy Rumors
BY SUSAN JOHNES
Over the weekend, Halle Berry sparked pregnancy rumors after posing for photos at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in a sparkly silver gown. Berry brought some attention to her tummy, after taking a picture while placing her hand on it, as the cameras were flashing.
Her representative has shut down the rumors, saying that Halle is not pregnant. The star went ahead and poked fun at the rumors, writing on Instagram, “Can a girl have some steak and fries?”
The 50-year-old actress was attending the 16th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in Los Angeles, which has a mission of raising money to help lift individuals out of homelessness and poverty.
Halle was pictured on the red carpet rocking a silver sequined dress and matching jacket, hugging what appeared to be a tiny baby bump.
She has two daughters, Nahla, 9, whom she got with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and Maceo, 3, whom she got with ex-husband Olivier Martinez.
After her divorce, Halle said that she was in an appropriate place. “I just feel happy, you know? I’ve arrived at a good place once again, that’s always good news. Downtime, dark times don’t last forever. The sun is out again, and it feels great.”
In 2014 the actress revealed that her second pregnancy to Maceo was a “miracle.” “I didn’t think it was possible at my age,” Halle said in an interview on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“They call it a ‘geriatric pregnancy. I was, you know, on my way. But I was kind of premenopausal. So to have this happen was huge.”
Currently, Halle is promoting her next film, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which will hit cinemas in Australia on September 28. Halle stars as Ginger, a tech wiz, alongside a star cast including Taron Egerton, Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, Channing Tatum, and Mark Strong.
Halle is the only black woman to have won a Best Actress Academy Award. She is also among the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, earning as much as $14 million per film. Additionally, Halle has been involved in the production of several films in which she performed.
Berry is widely known for her beauty in addition to her honors as an actress.
