You go, girl! Halle Berry has been a film industry icon for over 30 years — and throughout that time, she’s also established a dating history of very handsome boyfriends. From rumored lover Kevin Costner to ex-husband Olivier Martinez, all her romances have led the Catwoman star to her latest beau, Van Hunt.
Prior to falling in love with the musician, Halle was married three times. She was first hitched to baseball star David Justice from 1992 to 1997. The Monster’s Ball star then tied the knot with singer-songwriter Eric Benét in 2001, but they too split in 2005.
She then famously dated model Gabriel Aubry — with whom she welcomed daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry — from 2002 until 2010. Halle then said “I do” for a third time in 2013 to French actor Olivier and they welcomed their son, Maceo Robert Martinez, shortly after. However, in 2016, the actress and Olivier got divorced.
During a Q&A event in February 2017, Halle revealed she’s felt “guilty and responsible” for her past failed relationships. “[As] women, we go into marriage thinking it’s going to last forever and that this is our prince on a shiny horse. That’s what fairy tales taught me as a kid … and I’m kind of anti–fairy tales today,” she said. “I have learned to deal with three failed marriages, which has not been easy, especially when there are children involved.”
“When [your relationship] falls apart it feels like a huge failure and a huge disappointment,” Halle added. “I’ve often felt guilty and responsible. I’ve suffered a lot of pain and anguish.”
Through it all, Halle has remained strong. “I’m proud of the woman I am today because I went through a hell of a time becoming her,” she wrote on Instagram in January 2020. And even though she didn’t need a man to get to this point, she’s never felt more compelled to embrace a relationship with Van, whom she’s been dating since summer 2020.
On Valentine’s Day 2020, Halle got candid about her journey to find love, telling her Instagram followers to “never give up” until they find their true partner. “To all the Valentines who may be struggling to get it right … I feel you, but NEVER SETTLE for less than what makes your heart sing!” Halle penned on social media. “No matter what they say or what they call you. No matter how many times you try, it’s always worth it. If you desire love, you will find your match, your equal … your person … even if it takes you until you’re 54!”
