It’s no doubt that Halle Berry is a gorgeous woman and a successful actress, but for some reason, none of her success seemed to spill over into her love life. Divorced twice and currently undergoing a rather nasty custody battle with Gabriel Aubry, the father of her child Nahla, Halle would like to think that she finally got it right. The beautiful actress is currently engaged to French actor Oliver Martinez, and in the process of trying to convince the court that she and her daughter would have a better life in France. But it’s her past and several failed relationships that makes it so hard for most people to believe that Halle finally has a love that will last.
Halle is quite aware of her bad luck with men and even discusses it a bit in an interview with T, The New York Times Style Magazine. But it’s the way the actress explains her failed relationships that has many people calling her response arrogant.
“My picker’s broken,” Berry tells T about her ability to choose men. “God just wanted to mix up my life. Maybe he was thinking, ‘This girl can’t get everything! I’m going to give her a broken picker.'”
But now that she’s engaged to Olivier Martinez, she says her picker is apparently “fixed now.”
According to Berry, part of her questionable past choices comes from her admitted low self-esteem.
“Just because they see my face doesn’t mean they see me. A person’s self-esteem has nothing to do with how she looks,” she says. “If it’s true that I’m beautiful, I’m proof of that. Self-esteem comes from who you have in your life. How you were raised. What you struggled with as a child.”
