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.
