I OFTEN FELT GUILTY ABOUT MY FAILED MARRIAGES: BERRY
Hollywood actor Halle Berry (right) has been divorced three times and she says that she often holds herself responsible for her failed marriages.
The Extant actor said she has suffered a lot of pain and anguish as a result of her split 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 are 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,” Berry said.
And while each split has been tough on the 50-year-old actor, she feels that 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,” she added.
“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.
