Berry in one sentence: Halle is a beautiful African American woman and one of the most famous Hollywood actresses.


I'm not done with love, but I refuse to settle. I am a hopeless romantic. And I won't stop till I get it right.

Beauty is essentially meaningless and it is always transitory.

I love working with my hands.

The man for me is the cherry on the pie. But I'm the pie and my pie is good all by itself. Even if I don't have a cherry.

I'm just going to live my life and be who I am.

My modeling career was nothing but a stepping stone to my acting career and that's all I ever saw it as.

You think you know what love is - until you have a child and discover that unconditional mother love.

Have the ability to look in another direction. A small shift could guide you to the real purposes of your life.

When I was a kid, my mother told me that if you could not be a good loser, then there's no way you could be a good winner.
