Halle Berry Reveals Why She And Her Ex Still Love Each Other: ‘We Are A Family Until We Aren’t Here Anymore!’

After avoiding interviews for three years, the Academy Award winning actress finally explains why she and her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry decided to remain so close.

Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry might be broken up, but according to her they will always be friends.The 44-year-old actress had a very public breakup in April with boyfriend of five years and father to her daughter Nahla, Gabriel, but they have since put aside their differences.  Halle tells Vogue, “We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that’s why we came together. And because of that, we are going to be together forever, all three of us. We are a family until we are not here anymore.”

The actress met the 33-year-old model back in 2005 at a Versace photo shoot and Halle became pregnant with 2-year-old Nahla less than two years later.

“We have always been friends, we’re still friends, we love each other very much, and we both share the love of our lives,” she says. “And we are both 100 percent committed to being the best parents we can be. And while it was not a love connection for us, he was absolutely the right person to have this child with because she is going to have an amazing father.”

Halle went on to discuss other aspects of her life — like how she feels comfortable in her own skin … literally!

“I love the naked female form … I just feel like that’s the most empowered position you can be in,” she tells Vogue. “That comes with age. I’ve been slowly getting there. If the world wouldn’t persecute me, I’d take nude pictures every day of the week.”
