Halle admits to trying to kill herself



Tbdhalle033007_3 While Halle Berry is easily one of the most talented and beautiful actresses in Hollywood, playing everything from Catwoman to Dorothy Dandridge, she has had her self-doubts in the past. The Oscar winner tells Parade magazine that she attempted suicide after her marriage to baseball player David Justice fell apart in 1996. The 40-year-old says she tried to gas herself in a car, but then changed her mind. “I was sitting in my car, and I knew the gas was coming when I had an image of my mother finding me,” she says. “She sacrificed so much for her children, and to end my life would be an incredibly selfish thing to do.” Her three-year marriage to Justice ended among allegations of physical abuse, and the strain pushed Berry to the limit, she says. My sense of worth was so low,” she said. “I had to reprogram myself to see the good in me. Because someone didn’t love me didn’t mean I was unlovable. I promised myself I would never be a coward again.” [Photo: AP]
