Halle Berry reveals she had first orgasm at 11 while figuring out her sexuality: 'I did it to myself'
Berry said this during an episode of her IGTV series, ‘Bad & Booshy’, where she was chatting with longtime friend Lindsay Flores
Actor Halle Berry of ‘Monster’s Ball’ and ‘Catwoman’ fame recently opened up about her early experiences exploring her sexuality. The 54-year-old shared in a fun and casual Q&A video posted to her Instagram on Thursday, November 19, revealing that she experienced her first orgasm at a very young age. During an episode of her IGTV series, ‘Bad & Booshy’, while chatting with longtime friend Lindsay Flores, who said she couldn’t remember her own first time, Berry mused, “I remember my first orgasm. I did it to myself.” Flores then asked how old the star was, to which she responded, “Eleven.”
Berry said that at the time, she was "figuring out my sexuality — like most girls," before jokingly telling Flores "shame on you" for not remembering her experience. "I feel bad for you now." “I feel bad for myself,” Flores responded. “Maybe I gave it to myself.” Berry recently confirmed her relationship with boyfriend Van Hunt, an award-winning musician. The star initially teased the romance in July and confirmed it in September. In 2007, Hunt won the Grammy award for R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. He was also nominated for a Grammy in 2006 for Urban/Alternative Performance for his song ‘Dust’, but did not win.
A source told People magazine that Berry has already introduced her kids — her 12-year-old daughter Nahla and her seven-year-old son Mace — to the Grammy winner. "The two are spending a lot of time at Halle's Malibu house," the insider said. "She really seems to enjoy the quiet time. Van has met her kids, so it seems pretty serious." Another source said that they both "respect each other and have a great deal in common."
“Both are very successful and smart, and they seem to be in a mature relationship," the insider added. "It seems like a really good match."
Hunt has one teenage son. Though the singer-songwriter mainly keeps his personal life pretty private and away from social media, he does post a bit about his son from time to time. In a 2011 interview, Hunt said he loves being a father to his son, sharing, "it is a lot of fun! I can’t imagine anybody not wanting to explore the opportunity to be a father, if you should decide to have a child."
Berry, who began her career as a model, won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the romantic drama film ‘Monster's Ball’. Her most notable roles include playing Storm in ‘X-Men’ and its sequels ‘X2’ and ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’, and Bond girl Jinx in ‘Die Another Day’. Some of her other works are ‘Gothika’, ‘Cloud Atlas’, ‘The Call’, ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’, and ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum’. Berry was one of the highest-paid actresses in Hollywood during the 2000s.
She was formerly married to baseball player David Justice, singer-songwriter Eric Benét, and actor Olivier Martinez. She has a child each with Martinez and model Gabriel Aubry.
