EXQUISITE PETITE BEAUTY ICON HALLE BERRY
By Ann Lauren: Recognized as one the world’s most beautiful people, Halle Berry has been quoted as giving her height as both 5ft 4″ and 5ft 5″, which means she’s likely 5’3″. As we’ve noted celebs and their agents exaggerate actual height by two-four inches. The interesting phenomena with Halle is that we have discovered several sources purporting a wide range of heights from 5’2″to 5’9″. Surely their measuring sticks are BROKEN!
Halle Berry was born August 14, 1966. Halle is half Italian and half African American. She is applauded by the petite community for breaking traditional “beauty” standards as a former fashion model and beauty pageant queen. Before becoming an actress, Berry entered several beauty contests, finishing runner-up in the 1986 Miss USA contest, and winning the Miss USA World 1986 title.
Berry has received Emmy and Golden Globe awards for Dorothy Dandrige and an Academy Award for Best Actress in 2001 for her performance in Monster’s Ball, becoming the first and, as of 2009, only woman of African American descent to have won the award for Best Actress. Incidently, Denzel Washington won Best Actor the same year for Training Day. Actress/Spokes Model/Producer… there’s
Her breakthrough feature film role was in the 1991 Jungle Fever. The Flintstones (1994), Bulworth
(1998), X-Men (2000) and its sequels, Land as Bond Girl “Jinx” in Die Another Day(2002).
She also won a “Worst Actress” Razzie Award in 2005 for Catwoman and bravely accepted the award in person.
HALLE’S DARK PERIOD WITH MARRIAGE DEVASTATES LIFE
It’s a conundrum to ponder Halle’s bad luck with men and marriage. Who are these guys?! What does it take for one of the most exquisite women in the world to keep a man? Her first marriage was to pro baseball player David Justice. Berry has alleged in the past that Justice treated her roughly and blames him for making her deaf in one ear. It has been reported that the break-up was initiated by Justice. Halle Berry hit a low point in her life and “wanted to kill herself over divorce with Justice,” she told Parade magazine. In 1999 she married again, this time musician Eric Benet, but this marriage was also short-lived as Eric and Halle separated on October 1, 2003. Their divorce was final on January 3, 2005. Eric Benet had the audacity to admit publicly to his multiple infidelities with 12 bimbos, stating “I did it to save the marriage.” Good one, creep!
HALLE BERRY MOVES ON TO A HAPPY LIFE WITH DAUGHTER AND MODEL BEAU
Berry’s thoughts on how to keep a man: “a woman has to be a friend, independent, ladylike, shy and yet a freak in bed.” Certainly she knows what she’s talking about, as Berry has been dating drop-dead gorgeous French Canadian model Gabriel Aubry (11 years her junior) since November 2005. Their first child, a girl named Nahla Ariela Aubry, was born on March 16, 2008. Best of luck to Halle and her new beau!
SEAWORLD’S KILLER WHALE SHAMU AND HALLE!
Killer whale Shamu was spotted hugging the beautiful 5’3″ Halle Berry last Sunday. Talk about a lucky whale. What does a whale have to do to earn a date with Halle in San Diego’s Sea World? Halle and 15-month-old daughter Nahla Aubry spent the day at the theme park, hanging out with the aquatic creatures.
BellaPetite will continue to write about the always entertaining and beautiful Halle Berry for many years. Berry embodies the essence of petite beauty and style! We wish her success in her career and much deserved happiness with her daughter Nahla and Versace-model beau, Gabriel Aubry.
