Halle Berry digs into a bowl of cherries on the cover of Ebony's March issue. The actress is currently in the middle of a dramatic custody battle with her ex Gabriel Aubry, which has centered around their almost three-year-old daughter, Nahla. Accusations have come from both sides, some of which have involved issues of race between the couple. Halle addresses her daughter's identity and shares her feelings on motherhood inside the magazine in an interview that took place before things turned nasty with Gabriel. Here's more:
- On Nahla's identity: "But I feel like she's Black. I'm Black and I'm her mother, and I believe in the one-drop theory. If you're of multiple races, you have a different challenge, a unique challenge of embracing all of who you are but still finding a way to identify yourself, and I think that's often hard for us to do."
- On motherhood: "Being a mother is probably the most important thing in my life right now. Career is important, but nothing really supersedes my role as a mother. That's the most important thing I'm going to do in this life at this point."
