Halle Berry Talks Custody Case, Olivier Martinez And Philanthropic Work

It’s been a long and challenging year for Halle Berry, but it seems like everything in her life is coming together.

In an interview with Extra, the actress revealed that even though the custody proceedings with ex Gabriel Aubry was very public, it was ‘delicate issues’ between the couple that needed to be resolved and was never about fighting for Nahla. That’s positive news seeing that the pair have joint custody over their daughter and will be in each others lives for a very long time.

With that part of her life settled, Berry can focus on her blossoming relationship with actor Olivier Martinez and her ongoing involvement with Los Angeles’ Jenesse Center, a transitional housing shelter for survivors of domestic violence.  Halle was  honored at the center’s Annual Silver Rose Gala for her “What a Little Love Can Do” project, which renovates the apartments used to house individuals that seek help from Jenesse.

How does Olivier feel about Halle’s project? According to her, Martinez is also joining the mission and is already giving input on how he could get involved with the center.

So awesome! It’s so great to see that kind of support in a relationship.  Kudos Olivier! Above, the couple is seen leaving lunch with a good friend who blocked them from paparazzi in Los Angeles, CA on April 15, 2011.
