Variety’s 4th Annual Power Of Women Event Presented By Lifetime – Arrivals

After initially swearing off marriage, Halle Berry decided to give it a third go and accept actor Oliver Martinez’s proposal. Speaking with In Style magazine the Oscar-winner opens up on what caused her to have a change of heart. She explained: "It’s another one of those never-say-never things. I’m a hopeless romantic, and I won’t stop till I get it right!"

"When I first met Olivier, there wasn’t the initial ‘I’m in love!’" she added. "It was something that grew more gradually—and it feels more real because of that."

Describing Olivier, Halle revealed: "He’s silly, a clown, and very much the life of the party, which is good for someone like me. Danny Downer…been there, done that. Now I like Louie Lightfoot!"

As for their pending wedding: "I do know it will be very small. I haven’t been to many weddings, but I went to one this weekend with 250 guests. I thought, Wow—so this is a wedding, huh? I’ve never had that, nor have I wanted that. I wasn’t even trying to catch the bouquet!"
