Halle Berry on the cover
of Harper's Bazaar
Halle Berry is on this month's Harper's Bazaar and she looks gorgeous. Inside, she dishes about her post-baby body, being a mom to 19-month-old Nahla, and her guilty pleasures. Here's what she had to say.
On her body: Having a baby takes so much from you. It's the most glorious thing you'll ever do, but the aftermath is not so glorious! So now I'm having to exercise, eat a little bit differently, take a lot more vitamins.
On her favorite food splurge: I like Doritos. I'm usually watching The Biggest Loser eating Doritos.
On actresses who say they don't work at being thin: God bless them if they're telling the truth. It's questionable if they are. I always had to diet. I'm diabetic, so it's a lifestyle for me anyway just to stay healthy and not end up in the hospital.
On working: I used to work a lot because I had nothing better to do. What I've learned, especially by having a baby, is that you can't bring that stuff home anymore.
On her guilty pleasures: Very boring, but I buy baby clothes online. Nahla can't wear all the clothes I've bought, and we don't go anywhere because I can't deal with the paparazzi. Gabriel's always like, "She doesn't even leave the house! Halle, you've got to stop."
On having more children: Yes. My pregnancy was amazing. I was happy that whole time, I felt good, I had energy, I was like Superwoman. I wish I could feel like that for the rest of my life, that's how fantastic it was.
