If you haven't taken the time to look at her and accounts, do yourself a favor and check them out, because they're excellent. She's managed to hit that sweet spot of whimsy, nostalgia, inspiration, depth and just plain cool that we all secretly long for but few actually attain.
Case in point, an Instagram post Berry made over the weekend, featuring an image of her wearing a t-shirt that reads, "No more boyfriends."
While it may seem like just your average sexy t-shirt photo, Berry is actually saying a lot with her image and that phrase.
Earlier this year, during a Q&A at the 2017 City Summit and Gala in Los Angeles, Berry spoke about how her failed relationships have shaped who she is as an actor, a woman, and a mother.
“I have learned to deal with three failed marriages, which has not been easy, especially when there are children involved,” she said. “[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. I’m kind of anti-fairy tales today.”
So while her shirt says "No more boyfriends," what it's really saying is "I got this," "All I need is me," and "I'm Halle Berry and I'm fine."
"Right now, being Mom is my most important job and I now know that everything I do, everything I say and everything I offer them is really important,” Berry explained. “I say lots of things, but I think what’s more important is that my children watch what I do. I’m more mindful of how I live my life and what they see me do.”
Today her kids are seeing Mom as a strong, independent, and happy woman. What more could you ask for?
