Halle Berry repeats claim that she’ll never marry again

Halle Berry has said that she’s definitely never ever getting married again. She gave a candid interview to InStyle and said people can have a committed relationship and share their lives without making it official. She also said that her current boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubry, 31, is shy and that he didn’t chase her after they met on a Versace photoshoot. She said she had to play it cool in order to win his affections:

“I will never, never get married again,” the Oscar winner, 40, says in the April issue of InStyle.

“Actually it’s just that now I’ve come to a place where I think two people can share their lives without the ring, without the piece of paper.”

She met Aubry, 31, while shooting a Versace ad in November 2005. They made their public debut as a couple three months later at
the opening of a Versace store in New York City.

“After my last relationship [with actor Michael Ealy] broke up I was feeling like, well, it wasn’t that I didn’t want to be in a relationship, it’s just that I thought it would be okay to be on my own,” she tells InStyle.

“But he was disarmingly sweet and caring and different. In the past I’ve been attracted to big personalities. Gabriel was shy. He hardly talked to me at first.”

But that just made him more appealing. “I had to work at this a little,” she says. “It wasn’t a slam dunk; it wasn’t the guy just showering affection on me. It made it more interesting. We were equally matched � put it that way.”

I once was bitching about how I would never live in one of those high-rise apartment buildings again, and my mother decided to start lecturing me by saying “never say never… ” I rolled my eyes and tuned it out but I guess I would have similar advice for Halle. You never know what life is going to throw at you. I would rather live in one of those buildings than in a shack or something I guess, and maybe Halle would get married at some point if her man gave her an ultimatum. If she’s making statements like that, though, it sounds like she’s the one calling the shots in the relationship.

Berry, 40, also said that she “definitely” wants children at some point, and has said in the past that she wants to adopt. She says she wants to pass on values like integrity and hard work to any children that may come into her life.

Berry was married twice before. Halle’s first marriage, to baseball player David Justice lasted from 1992 to 1996. They broke up due in part to differing schedules and too much time apart while he was on the road. She claimed her last husband, singer Eric Ben�t, cheated on her an astonishing �27 times.� Benet has admitted he was unfaithful to Berry, but says he was not as much of a cheater as Berry claims. Berry and Benet were married from 2001 to 2004.

In January Halle was seen out with a ring on her left ring finger, sparking engagement rumors. Either that was untrue or she’s called it off.

This isn’t the first time Halle has said she will never marry again. She said in 2004 when the pain of her second divorce was still fresh that “I’ll never get married again, and I always hate to say never to anything, but I will never marry again.”

Here is Berry at the premiere of her new thriller Perfect Stranger. It also stars Bruce Willis. I’m not really feeling that derss. Pictures [via]

    Too bad she married those assholes before who traumatized her!!If only she had known…and waited ’til Aubry to marry…

    Love her, but not lovin’ the dress either.

    Nothing wrong with not marrying.
    I’ll never marry.
    It makes perfect sense to share without needing a legal arrangement; also, a fulfilling life of one’s own is much more important before any of that.
    Marraige doesnt guarantee a good relationship; a healthy strong relationship wont be helped by a marriage, either.
    I prefer freedom and autonomy above all, so it’s not necessarily due to trauma, but I think common sense and security.

    Didn’t her first husband beat her? I’m pretty sure that’s why she’s deaf in one ear. Plus she’s a hit and run driver and used the plastic surgery to repair her eyebrow as an excuse to have her nose done. This woman has some serious bad karma.

    That woman is so hot she’d look good in a hessian sack. I hope she sticks to her resolution never to marry – its a useless archaic tradition nowadays and she’d probably remain more empowered if she didn’t go there again.

    i dont think that marriage is the bad thing….maybe i think that because i havent ever been married..lol ahh but i do love my independence and hope to find someone(the right guy) to share my life with. maybe im getting a little older, but i think that marriage can still be romantic, a promise to each other..with foundations in love, sticking it out in good times and bad.

    my parents are still married…almost 40 years, and ohhh man do i respect them for sticking to their commitment and still loving each other after all these years.

    im sorry im not a big halle fan. its sad that the two men she married were dickheads to her. yeah, in the hit and run…she literally drove off and away from the accident and the woman she injured.
    im not a psychic, but when youre crawling your way to the top of hollywood, there are countless casualties along the way to be had.
    its not that she didnt have her priorities in check, you better believe that she did. its just that marriage was not one of them.
