Congratulations are in order today for Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez, who, if Us Weekly is to be believed, got engaged over the holidays. According to “a rep from the jeweler [Gurhan],” Martinez presented Berry with a “one of a kind” emerald and diamond ring, which she allegedly accepted. The 45-year-old actress has been married twice before, first to baseball player David Justice (1993-1997) and then to R&B singer Eric Benet (2001-2003), and has an adorable 3-year-old daughter with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry (a fine choice of DNA, if I do say so myself). Berry and Martinez met on the set of the film Dark Tide, an action film about swimming with great white sharks that looks like it could be the next Deep Blue Sea. You may remember Martinez from such fine films as Unfaithful and that’s probably it.
Can we take a moment to appreciate Halle Berry’s taste in men? It’s almost as if she cares about handsomeness as much as we do. And such a valuable U.S. export getting with two French dudes in a row can only be good for trans-Atlantic relations.
