Halle Berry has been divorced three times and the actress says she often feels responsible for her failed marriages. The “Extant” star said she has “suffered a lot of pain and anguish” as a result of her splits from Olivier Martinez, Eric Benet and David Justice, reported Female First.
“I have learned to deal with three failed marriages, which has not been easy, especially when there’s children involved. (As) women, we go into marriage thinking it’s going to last forever and that this is our prince on a shiny horse. That’s what fairytales taught me as a kid … and I’m kind of anti-fairytales today. But we go in there with that hope, so when it falls apart it feels like a huge failure and a huge disappointment. I’ve often felt guilty and responsible. I’ve suffered a lot of pain and anguish,” Berry said.
And while each split has been tough on the 50-year-old actress she feels it has taught her a lot about herself. “In every one of those situations, as hard – and sometimes embarrassing – as it was, I learned so much about myself. All of those relationships were necessary for me. We all come here with lessons that we have to learn and those relationships provided me with lessons that got me to where I am right now. For that, I’m grateful. But it has been hard. It’s been a difficult part of my life,” she said.
