In a new interview, actress Halle Berry admits she felt guilty, and a lot of pain and anguish over her three failed marriages, but is grateful for the lessons they taught her.
“I have learned to deal with three failed marriages, which has not been easy, especially when there’s children involved.”
“women, we go into marriage thinking it’s going to last forever and that this is our prince on a shiny horse,” she continued. “That’s what fairytales taught me as a kid … and I’m kind of anti-fairytales today.”
“But we go in there with that hope, so when it falls apart it feels like a huge failure and a huge disappointment,” she added. “I’ve often felt guilty and responsible. I’ve suffered a lot of pain and anguish.”
The actress added,
“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.”
