It looks like Olivier Martinez enjoyed a rather delicious appetiser as he dined with girlfriend Halle Berry.
And apparently the food was quite tasty too.
Halle beat the heat in the sweltering Los Angeles sun in a cooling maxi dress as she went on a lunch date with her other half today.

And it wasn't only the zebra print pattern that would have sent French actor Olivier wild.
The garment also happened to be rather low cut - and quite clingy.
Halle, 44, and 45-year-old Olivier were spotted together at the Lemonade restaurant in West Hollywood.
Martinez, who used to date singer Kylie Minogue, played it casual in jeans and a T-shirt.

The celebrity couple both wore shades as they left the eatery arm in arm, a rare sighting of the couple pictured in close proximity.
In April it was announced that Halle split from long-term boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubrey with whom she has a three-year-old daughter, Nahla.
The Monster's Ball actress has now been dating Olivier for several months.
Recently she and Aubrey entered a public war of words, igniting a bitter custody battle over Nahla, which is as of yet unresolved.

About Silver Rose Weekend

We have told the story many times. More than thirty years ago, five brave women had a dream - to be able to provide a safe haven for families ravished by domestic violence. Their humble beginnings of offering food and a place to stay for women with nowhere to turn, has now blossomed into Jenesse Center, an organization that builds awareness and engages change on a local and global scale.

Each year as we plan The Silver Rose Weekend, we focus on a theme that best clarifies our work toward a perfect world. This year's Theme is HOPE. We know that there is hope for a perfect world. This is because of wonderful friends and supporters -- people like you who make life- saving services possible.


The Silver Rose Weekend is our annual forum where Jenesse board members, staff, community leaders and our Chairperson, Halle Berry, come together to honor those who make a difference. We count on and celebrate people like you, whose commitment to our cause of ending domestic violence has transformed the lives of countless numbers of men, women and children.


On behalf of our Weekend Chairperson, Halle Berry, the Executive Committee Co-Chairs, our Board of Directors, and Staff, thank you for you for making peace happen.

Halle Berry exits Broadway's 'The Mountaintop,' but Samuel L. Jackson is still in

Halle Berry exits Broadway's 'The Mountaintop,' but Samuel L. Jackson is still in

Jackson One of the most anticipated plays coming to Broadway this year, "The Mountaintop" has been generating buzz since it opened in London two years ago and scored an upset at the Olivier Awards, winning the trophy for best play. Written by Katori Hall, the drama speculates on the events of the night before the assassination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968.
Halle Berry had been rumored for the role of Camae, a maid with ambiguous intentions who works at the Lorraine Motel, where King was assassinated while in Memphis. But producers announced Thursday that Berry won't be in the Broadway production due to her child custody battle.
Producers confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson will star as King when the play officially opens at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on Oct. 13. Kenny Leon will direct the play, with the casting of the maid to be announced at a later date.
The play follows King after he delivers his  "I've Been to the Mountaintop" speech and retires to his motel room. In London, the play was produced at the Trafalgar Studios 1, and starred David Harewood and Lorraine Burroughs.
In addition to her Olivier Award, Hall won the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize recognizing female playwrights.

Hold on tight! Biker babe Halle Berry jumps on the back of Olivier Martinez's Harley

Halle Berry was quite the biker babe when she slipped on her matching black leather outfit to jump on the back of Olivier Martinez’s Harley Davidson.
The couple took a spin around West Hollywood yesterday on the French actor’s motorbike before stopping off at Barneys for a spot of shopping.
The Dark Tide co-stars also grabbed a bite to eat in Santa Monica, looking every bit in love as Halle held onto Oliver’s arm when entering the eatery.

Halle, 44, kept a close grip around her lover’s torso as the 45-year-old heartthrob showed off his classic bike.
And as Olivier was parading his motorbike around Hollywood, the mother-of-one was showing off her flawless figure in her skin tight leather trousers and matching jacket and biker boots.

Halle drove into West Hollywood in her car to meet Olivier at Angelini restaurant for lunch, before jumping on the back of his bike for a ride and to hit the shops.
The actors met while filming Dark Tide in South Africa last year, which is yet to have a release date but is a thriller centered around a diving instructor who returns to keep waters after a near-fatal encounter with a Great White shark.

Since sparking up a romance, Halle and Olivier have been spotted looking very loved up in various cities around the world over the past few months.
Meanwhile, Halle and her daughter’s father Gabriel Aubry are still trying to finalise a custody settlement with a judge.
TMZ reported that Judge Mark Juhas said to Gabriel and his lawyers in court this week, ‘We’re making huge progress. We need to stick with it.’
And the former couple are said to be on the verge of an agreement over the visitation and custody of their three-year-old daughter Nahla.

Halle, who has been married twice before to baseball player David Justice and musician Eric Benet, ended her relationship with Canadian model Aubry last year.
The Oscar-winning actress was seen heading to court in Los Angeles as she held onto her daughter.
She has been locked in a dispute with her ex since Gabriel attempted to block the star from taking her daughter to New York while she filmed New Year’s Eve last month.
Halle and Gabriel dated from 2005 to 2010 before calling time on the relationship last year.

Halle Berry Hot In Sweats from Frankie and Alice set 30.11.08

Halle Berry Hot In Sweats

Posted by Sassy Smith


No rest for working mom Halle Berry as she was spotted on the Vancouver movie set of Frankie and Alice Thursday afternoon.  Berry was filming scenes with co-star Stellan Skarsgard in a beautiful floral garden.  Speaking of beautiful - who else could look that pretty with no makeup on and wearing sweats?





The flick also stars Chandra Wilson and Phylicia Rashad.  The movie is a drama "centered on a young woman with multiple personality disorder who struggles to remain her true self and not give in to her racist alter-personality."

Sweet smell of success: who will win at this year's FiFi awards?

Monday, 11 April 2011


Armani's Acqua di Gioia, Chanel's Chance Eau Tendre, Gucci Guilty, Pure DKNY, and Voyage d'Herm├Ęs are all in the running for the grand prize of the fragrance industry's equivalent of the Oscars.
The final nominees were announced by the US Fragrance Foundation April 8, with the winner scheduled to be named at the official award ceremony May 25.
Eva by Eva Longoria, Flirt! Rock-N-Rebel, Halle by Halle Berry Pure Orchid, S by Shakira and Samba Sun Woman have been shortlisted as best fragrances with a broader appeal.
One who can already be sure of a trophy is French designer Jean Paul Gaultier, who is this year's Hall of Fame inductee, while the recently deceased Elizabeth Taylor - whose White Diamonds fragrance is still one of the top-selling celebrity fragrances today - is expected to be honored posthumously.
Perfumer Firmenich's osMOZ iPhone App, which facilitates fragrance shopping, also received recognition.
The FiFis are the industry's most respected awards, with local editions being held in Germany, France, Italy, the UK, and Russia, among others.

Berry hides Oscar in her bedroom

 
 
Berry hides Oscar in her bedroom
Halle Berry has revealed she keeps her best actress Oscar beside her Razzie award - to remind her how fickle fame can be.
The star, who picked up an Academy Award for the 2001 film Monster's Ball, gamely collected a Razzie for the box office flop Catwoman in 2005.
"The Oscar is in my bedroom in Los Angeles because I do not like people to touch it or look at it. The Razzie sits right below the Oscar," Halle told the Sun.
"It reminds me, if I ever needed reminding, about the absurdity of this career... It keeps my working life in perspective."
And the 44-year-old actress, who stars in the new thriller Dark Tide, said growing older doesn't concern her too much either.
"Growing older is not such a big deal for me, despite the fears that older actresses have in Hollywood. When I hit 40, for example, I didn't feel 40 - or whatever that is supposed to feel like," she added.
"I spent half of my career - the last 20 years - fighting for a place of a woman of colour. So finding a place in my forties does not seem so hard."

Halle Berry is “not the marrying kind”.

Halle Berry: 'I should never marry'

Halle Berry claims she's not the marrying kind

Posted: Monday 11 April 2011

Above: Halle Berry thinks she should never have got married
 
 
Halle Berry is “not the marrying kind”.
 
Halle Berry– who was previously wed to US baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benet and has a three-year-old daughter Nahla from a past relationship with model Gabriel Aubry – thinks she has made a lot of “wrong choices” in her personal life and believes she would have been much happier if she had never walked down the aisle.

She said: "I wish I had known then that I was not the marrying kind. It would have saved me a lot of time, heartache and grief over the years.

"I made all the wrong choices when it came to love. I have been an idiot."

The 'Monster's Ball' star thinks her bad luck in love is because of a lack of a good paternal figure in her life growing up, which led her to embark on unhealthy relationships.

She explained: "My father left us when I was young and that did affect my life. If I had a good father in my life, growing up, then I do not think I would have made the mistakes I made. I would not have been lost in love.

"I would have had a good role model and known what to look for."

However, Halle – who is now romancing French actor Olivier Martinez - has accepted her past and learned from her mistakes.

She added: "Now, it is like a gift to myself - seeing more clearly and making better decisions."
