After more than a few failed relationships, Halle Berry has come to the conclusion that she’s just unlucky in love.
“I made all the wrong choices when it came to love. I have been an idiot,” she told the Sun newspaper. “I wish I had known then that I’m not the marrying kind. It would have saved me a lot of time, heartache and grief over the years,” said the twice-divorced Oscar winner.
It might sound a little cliché, but Halle thinks her relationship with her father may have something to do with her past relationship faux pas.
“One thing was unavoidable. My father left us when I was young and that did affect my life. If I had a good father in my life, growing up, then I do not think I would have made the mistakes I made. I would not have been lost in love,” she said.
Halle’s first marriage to baseball’s David Justice lasted four years. She wasn’t planning to marry again but was wed a second time to singer Eric Benét in 2001. Their divorce was finalized in 2005.
Halle’s relationship with model Gabriel Aubry didn’t fare any better. The two split and were soon engaged in a custody battle. The parents met with a judge earlier this week and are expected to come to an agreement soon.
Critics have joked that Halle, often considered one of the industry’s most beautiful women, must be hard to deal with since her relationships seem to rarely end on a positive note.
Whether any future romantic relationships end amicably or bitterly, it’s doubtful they’ll be ending with an actual divorce.
“I have done it twice and I am not going to do it again. The traditional form of marriage is not for me,” Halle said.
