Halle Berry recently spoke out about a suicide attempt, and she wasn’t referring to Catwoman (shockingly!). In a Parade cover story, Halle says that she attempted to gas herself via her car following the break-up of her marriage to Atlanta Brave David Justice (the pair split in 1996). People says that this is something she "revealed," as though the story isn’t almost five years old. It is, actually, as this article in The Age proves. Dlisted also points out that she talked to Oprah about suicidal tendencies; though in that case, she was referring to a dire time in the messy aftermath of her second marriage to Eric Benét. ("My bay windows looked real good and I thought I was going to go right through them," she said.)
For as much as Halle has thought about suicide, she may be talking about it even more. (Have I mentioned yet her 2004 story in G.Q.?) Maybe she’s dealing with real thoughts of suicide by admitting them to herself and then airing them in public. If so, bravo. Or is her cry for help merely a plea for attention? Don’t be surprised if Halle starts showing up on the red carpet
with a hose or a pack of razors as her date. Who needs men, anyway?!
She didn’t, however, show any signs of fatalism while in Madrid on Thursday to promote Perfect Stranger. Here are some shots of Halle at the event. Would it be tasteless to say that she’s breathtaking? [People]
