'I have felt guilty': Halle Berry, 50, reveals she has experienced 'anguish' about divorces from Olivier Martinez, Eric Benet and David Justice
Halle Berry has been divorced three times.
But the Catwoman star does not take those failures lightly.
During Q&A at the 2017 City Summit and Gala at the USC Tower in Los Angeles on Saturday, the 50-year-old beauty touched on her three divorces, revealing she has felt 'guilty' about them, according to Entertainment Tonight.

'I’ve often felt guilty and responsible. I’ve suffered a lot of pain and anguish,' said the Oscar winner.
Her three exes are actor Olivier Martinez (2013–2016), singer Eric Benét (2001–2005), and baseball player David Justice (1992–1997).
The Elle cover girl - who was a keynote speaker about the event - said: 'I have learned to deal with three failed marriages, which has not been easy, especially when there’s children involved.'

She has two kids: Nahla, eight (from boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, who she never wed), and Maceo, three (from Olivier).
'[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 added that when the split happens 'it feels like a huge failure and a huge disappointment.'

But there has been an upside.
'In every one of those situations, as hard — and sometimes embarrassing — as it was, I learned so much about myself,' she said.
'All of those relationships were necessary for me. We all come here with lessons that we have to learn, and those relationships provided me with lessons that got me to where I am right now. For that, I’m grateful. But it has been hard. It’s been a difficult part of my life.'
The star is heavily involved with the Jenesse Center, a domestic-violence prevention program, which she also discussed at the event.

The Catwoman star wore a pretty black dress and decorated heels that made the most of her 5ft5in frame.
The dress was unusual because it waved around her knees.
The Extant actress added on a pair of red and black strapped shoes that flaunted her unique style at events.
Carrying herself well with plenty of confidence, the mother of two wore a silver bracelet as she smiled for the cameras.
Doing a nice thing: The actress took part in the event meant to help raise funds for charities
The star kept her dark hair curly and big with her locks flowing down.
She appeared to be in positive spirits as she attended the event that helps raise funds for awareness and charities.
Other celebrities who were scheduled to show up include Anthony Mackie, John Travolta and Quincy Jones.

Halle remains to be incredible shape, but that doesn't come easily for her.
She told LA Times in August 2015 that she's had to take more caution in staying healthy.
'I am more conscious of what I eat,' she said. 'I have never worked out with a lot of weights unless I had to for a film role.'
Say cheese: Halle took a moment to pose with Ryan Long
'Left to my own devices, I just do cardio,' the X-Men star added.
'I do exercises that involve my own body weight because I never want to get too muscly. I am diabetic, so exercising has always been a part of managing my disease and keeping my sugars under control.'
Halle's next film is called Kidnap where she plays a mom whose son gets snatched away by a driver.
She then goes on a wild goose chase to rescue him causing more chaos along the way.
The film hits theaters on March 10.
