Halle Berry has been divorced three times previously but says her past failed relationships have helped her to realise boyfriend Van Hunt is the love of her life
Halle Berry finally thinks she’s found her happy ever after in current boyfriend Van Hunt.
The Monster’s Ball actress, 55, has been divorced three times but has called her new beau the “love of my life” as she delivered a touching speech at this year’s Annual Celebration of Black Cinema & Television.
The actress accepted the Career Achievement Award on Monday at the fourth edition of the ceremony, which she attended with her 51-year-old partner.
The pair looked very much in love as they walked hand in hand entering the event.
She wore a pillar box red outfit with a high-low skirt, a wide belted waist and a low V-neckline.
Her natural make-up also received the plaudits from her fans as her true beauty shone through.
Van looked dapper in a black suit and white shirt.
The beauty confirmed she was dating Van in September last year and hasn’t shied away from the attention since.
Accepting her award on Monday, Halle discussed how the public had been on her “painful journey” looking for “the one”.
She fought back tears after receiving a standing ovation from the crowd as she looked back on her journey to date.
According to E! News, she said: “When I started 30 years ago, there weren’t rooms like this where I could go and feel affirmed or esteemed. I was often alone.
“I was only one of the few Black people in the room searching to find my value, searching to find my worth, feel accomplished.”
Halle continued: “For 30 years later to be standing here, not just as an actor, but now a director, remaining authentic and true to myself and doing it on my own terms is probably one of the greatest joys of my life and I’m so happy to share this with all of you.”
She later commented on her true happiness with Van, adding: “You’ve watched me fail and fail and fail and fail. Besides directing my first movie, I also found the love of my life and I know it’s true and this is how I know it’s true.
“Because you fail so many times, you know what wrong looks like. And because I failed so many times, I now know what [love] really looks like.”
During a discussion at Elle’s 2021 Women in Hollywood event in October, she gushed that she had “finally” found the right one in the singer-songwriter.
And in what is turning out to be a successful week, the Gothika star will also accept the The People’s Icon Award at the 2021 People’s Choice Awards on Tuesday.
