Halle Berry would quit acting for her daughter. The Oscar-winning actress — who has a two-year-old daughter Nahla with former boyfriend Gabriel Aubry — says her priorities have changed since becoming a mother and she is no longer so focused on her career.
“Children shift your priorities and now I have a greater purpose for being here. I love making movies but I would give it all up to be with my daughter if I had to because she’s the love of my life,” Halle said. “She’s made me a better person because everything I do and say, everything I want and don’t want, I think first, ‘Will this be best for her?’
“When you have children you get to see things all over again. So I’ve never laughed as hard, I’ve never done more silly things, and I go to great lengths to make her laugh. She’s awakened a childlike side of me. The 44-year-old beauty — who is currently dating Kylie Minogue’s former boyfriend, actor Oliver Martinez – also admitted Nahla has also influenced her taste in men. “Every choice I make now, and that includes who I choose to spend personal time with as a partner, is not just about me any more, it’s about what’s best for her,” she said.
However the Gothika star is happy in her new relationship and revealed things have never been better for her. “I am just a girl who met a boy; a girl who liked a boy; a boy liked the girl and then that’s what happened,” she said. “I’ve wanted this for so long and I feel happier than ever before.
“I’m happy and fulfilled and I’m in a really good space in my life. I’ve survived many highs and many lows and I think I have it all in perspective now — never get too high and never get too low.”
Too bad Gabriel ain’t playing that shacking up with the new boo shyte, Halle…
