Nov 12 2009 - 2:05pm

Halle Berry [1] flashed a smile as she ran errands in LA yesterday, but this evening we'll see her more serious side on the NBC Nightly News. In the segment, Halle shared her own experience with domestic violence while talking about her work with the Jenesse Center in LA, saying, [2] "My mother was a battered woman and that was my childhood for a good chunk of it...Early on in my life, I made choices, and I chose men that were abusive because that was what I knew growing up." Halle has come a long way in speaking out about her own difficult past and recently finding happiness with Gabriel and Nahla. Next month, Halle will be honored for her work in the industry at the Hollywood Reporter's Power 100: Women in Entertainment breakfast [3] where's she will receive the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award.
