Halle explained: ‘I’m a much better mother in this circumstance than I would have been had I stayed in a romantic relationship that didn’t serve me and didn’t make me feel the way I need to feel as a woman.’ 

Berry has two kids: a daughter named Nahla, 13, with ex Gabriel Aubrey and a son named Maceo, eight, with ex-husband Olivier Martinez. 

The John Wick: Chapter 3 star first hinted that she had entered into a new relationship in August, when she shared a shot of her playing footsie with a then-unidentified man. 

She has been married three times, first to David Justice, then to Eric Benet, before marrying Martinez.

Berry also talked about her special connection with UFC champion and Bruised costar Valentina Shevchenko, who posed besides the star in the story.

‘I feel like we’ve been through a fire together. There was a lot of pressure on me to get my part right. 

‘But when you have a partner pulling for you, and you’re both scared but want this so badly, you have a closeness. I will love her forever.’

Bruised follows a down-on-her-luck MMA fighter who accepts an unsanctioned bout with a top fighter while also dealing with the return of her six-year-old son, whom she gave up for adoption when he was still a baby.

The film originally imagined the lead as a 25-year-old white woman, before Halle convinced producer Basil Iwanyk otherwise. 

‘I felt it was more powerful for a middle-aged woman of color to have a last chance. The stakes were higher.’

Bruised arrives in theaters November 17th 2021.
