You’ve got it, girl! Halle Berry has been a film industry icon for more than 30 years, and she’s had a string of very handsome boyfriends during that time. All of her relationships have led the Catwoman star to her latest beau, Van Hunt, from rumoured lover Kevin Costner to ex-husband Olivier Martinez. Halle had been married three times before falling in love with the musician. From 1992 to 1997, she was married to baseball player David Justice. In 2001, the Monster’s Ball star married singer-songwriter Eric Benét, but the couple divorced in 2005.
From 2002 to 2010, she was famously linked to model Gabriel Aubry, with whom she had a daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry. In 2013, Halle married French actor Olivier for the third time, and the couple welcomed their son, Maceo Robert Martinez, shortly after. The actress and Olivier, on the other hand, divorced in 2016. Halle admitted she felt “guilty and responsible” for her previous failed relationships during a Q&A event in February 2017. “As women, we enter marriage with the expectation that it will last forever and that this is our prince on a gleaming horse. “That’s what fairy tales taught me as a child… and I’m anti–fairy tales now,” she explained. “I’ve dealt with three failed marriages, which hasn’t always been easy, especially when children are involved.”
“It feels like a huge failure and disappointment when [your relationship] falls apart,” Halle continued. “Throughout the years, I’ve felt a great deal of guilt and responsibility.” “I’ve been through a lot of heartache and suffering.” Despite the difficulties, Halle has remained unflappable. “I’m proud of the woman I am today because I had a hell of a time becoming her,” she wrote on Instagram in January 2020. Despite the fact that she didn’t need a man to get to this point, she’s never felt more compelled to embrace her relationship with Van, who she’s been dating since the summer of 2020.
Halle got candid about her search for love on Valentine’s Day 2020, telling her Instagram followers to “never give up” until they find their true love. “To all the Valentines out there who are having trouble getting it right… I understand, but NEVER SETTLE for anything less than your heart’s desire!” On social media, Halle wrote. “It makes no difference what they say or call you. It’s always worth it, regardless of how many times you try. Even if it takes you until you’re 54, if you want love, you’ll find your match, your equal… your person!”
In 1989, Halle and Kevin Costner were rumoured to have had an affair. However, as Hollywood Life points out, there isn’t much evidence that these two actually dated. Despite the rumours, the two have remained friends over the years, even collaborating on the documentary Boffo! Tinseltown’s Bombs and Blockbusters in 2006.
Halle took her first steps down the aisle with baseball legend David Justice. From 1993 to 1997, the actress and the former New York Yankees player were married.
Following her divorce from David in 1997, the John Wick: Chapter 3 actress dated Shemar Moore for a year before splitting in 1998. In a 2013 interview with BET, the Criminal Minds actor reflected on their relationship, saying, “I fell hard for Halle.” Although many people now know we dated, we had to keep it a secret at the time because she had just divorced David Justice. I’m still grateful for that relationship. I was smitten not only by who she was but also by how similar we were in so many ways.”
Halle married her second husband, Eric Benét, in 2001. Similarly to her first marriage, the actress and singer-songwriter divorced in 2005.
Halle and Michael Ealy, who starred in the film Think Like a Man, was a couple from 2004 to 2005. Despite parting ways, the two remained on good terms. “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 OK to be on my own after my last relationship [with Michael Ealy] broke up,” she told InStyle in 2007.
From 2005 to 2010, Halle and Gabriel Aubry were together for five years. During their relationship, the brunette beauty and the Canadian model welcomed their daughter, Nahla, in March 2008.
