Halle Berry might be an Oscar winning actress with a body that looks half its age, but the A-lister admits to a life-long weak spot.
“My picker’s broken,” she told New York Times Style magazine about her taste in men. “God just wanted to mix up my life. Maybe he was thinking, ‘This girl can’t get everything! I’m going to give her a broken picker.’ ”
She's endured two divorces — her first husband, David Justice, was physically abusive, her second, Eric Benét, a philandering sex addict — and the actress is entangled in a messy custody battle with ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry.
Thankfully, things seem to have settled down with new boyfriend, Olivier Martinez, which got us thinking: what A-list ladies who seemingly have it all but suffer from the same "broken picker"?
The world shook its head "no" when pop tart Britney Spears shacked up with back-up dancer, Kevin Federline, in 2004. The first red flag? His pregnant girlfriend, Shar Jackson. Of course, Brit didn't listen and proceeded to marry and later divorce him in 2006. She has now settled down with her former manager, Jason Trawick.
