Halle Berry is one of those sneaky types of attention whores. The kind that, when the paparazzi accosts her, she pretends to be annoyed and starts throwing shit and yelling at them like the crazy cat lady who lives on your grandmom’s block. But whenever she needs them for publicity, she tones the crazy all the way down. For example, at Saturday nights Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in Los Angeles, Halle arrived with her plus one either being a new baby friend forming in her belly, or the remains of a gigantic steak burrito from Taco Bell busting out of her gut.
We all know that when it comes to dressing for the Oscars, everyone takes it very seriously. They put on a tux or fancy gown that definitely didn’t come with a check attached to the garment bag. Most of the time the result is a one-way ticket to Zzzzzz town (see: a good 75% of the looks from last night). But then everyone gets to let loose at Vanity Fair’s annual Oscar afterparty and put on what they really want to wear (see: The Gold Standard). Like many people at the Vanity Fair party, Diane Kruger wasn’t at the Oscars and she showed up wearing that.
During last night’s Oscars, Dakota Johnson presented with her Fifty Shades Duller co-star Jamie Dornan, and they did a hilarious bit where they pretended to have chemistry with each other. Clearly Dakota was afraid all the crotch-searing sexuality between her and Jamie would be too much for the audience to handle, and she dressed accordingly. And by accordingly, I mean she counter-balanced it by dressing in an unsexy satin nightgown situation that was made by Gucci.
There’s no question that when it comes to picking men, Halle Berry’s good choices detector is broken. If Halle is vinegar, she goes straight for the baking soda. Halle Berry has been married three times, and all three were varying degrees of bad. Even the men she wasn’t married to have been dragged – literally – into her husband troubles. But it sounds like Halle might have recently reached a moment of self-actualization.
After announcing they were done with each other more than a year ago, Olivier Martinez is now officially Halle Berry’s third ex-husband. There was a moment where it felt like it might not happen, thanks to Halle allegedly wishing and hoping that Olivier might wake up one morning and not have rage flowing through his veins. But TMZ says that it did happen, and it was pretty drama-free.
Like many people, Halle Berry is a mom and she’s on Instagram. But unlike some moms, Halle Berry’s Instagram isn’t filled with 8,024 pictures of her children holding up packs of diapers like “LaKynn and McKarty love their @Huggies!” in an attempt to get those sponsored content dollars. Halle Berry barely posts pictures of her kids on Instagram and when she does, she doesn’t include their faces, because she’s private like that. One of Halle’s Instagram followers didn’t like Halle cropping her kids’ faces out and told her about it repeatedly. Halle doesn’t have to respond to Instagram comments (see: being famous), but she did this time and it got a tiny bit dramatic.
