Halle Berry Admits to Suicide Attempt

  1. Actress Halle Berry tried to commit suicide over her failed first marriage, she reveals in an upcoming interview.

    Berry, 40, admits to Parade magazine that she tried to gas herself when her fiery union to Atlanta Braves baseball star David Justice collapsed, but pulled out at the last minute.

    "I was sitting in my car, and I knew the gas was coming when I had an image of my mother finding me," she tells the magazine.

    The image of her stoic mother Judith, now 67, was enough to snap the blues out of Berry. "She sacrificed so much for her children, and to end my life would be an incredibly selfish thing to do. It was all about a relationship. My sense of worth was so low," Berry says. "I promised myself I would never be a coward again."

    The actress also describes her subsequent marriage, to singer Eric Benet, as "really horrific ... We were in sex rehab after one year. I wish I had left then, but I was putting everyone's needs before mine," says the Oscar winner, who next appears on-screen with Bruce Willis in the thriller Perfect Stranger.

    Twice divorced Berry is now dating model Gabriel Aubry, after meeting the 31-year-old in Nov. 2005 during a Versace advertising shoot. Three months later they went public as a couple. Twice bitten, Berry rules out a third marriage.

    [​IMG]"I will never, never get married again," she told InStyle recently.

    But she tells Parade she is determined to be a mother. "I've accomplished things I never thought I would," she says. "Now my sights are set on a different chapter in my life, which is motherhood. That's the goal I have very clearly set for myself."

  3. i can't even rap my mind around what it must be like to have been thru two such horrible marriages. its crazy how such a beautiful accomplished woman would wind up with those losers.it must be really hard in hollywood to meet a nice person..maybe there really aren't any that many.
     
  4. anytime :smile: yes im very happy she made it through. She has a lot of talent and everyone has problems
     
  5. I heard this on tv today and thought that this wasn't old news to me. I really believe I read this about her before...or saw it in an interview w/her...don't know.
    She's been through a lot...she's a survivor...
     
  6. Yea, she talked about this a while ago on Oprah.
     
  7. Yes...it's so yesterday news. I don't know why the media is making it like it's breaking news.
     
  8. I really admire her strength. She's gone through a lot and is still hanging in there. She's proof that beauty doesn't always make your love life easier by any means. I hope things work out with her and Gabriel. They would make some gorgeous children. :yes:
     
  9. Yeah I know it's so awful to have serious problems in marriage I can relate. It pushes you to the darkest depths of your soul.
     
  10. Really glad she came through this!
