Halle Berry Sports Short Shorts and Stays Protective of Nahla

Halle Berry stepped out on a gorgeous LA day on Thursday, showing off her legs in a pair of cutoff jean shorts. She's been soaking up the California sun on the beach with Nahla instead of reprising any of her gorgeous Cannes looks of past festivals. Halle smiled big as she walked to her car, keeping her spirits up despite rumors that the custody battle with Gabriel Aubry over Nahla is getting heated. Halle recently talked about how protective she is of her daughter saying, "You don't want to mess with me! I'm like a lioness with my daughter, so I can take it up to a point. But if she starts to get at all upset by it, I just turn into a beast."
