Halle Berry's divorce from David Justice very nearly cost the world a chance to admire her lovely breasts (and Oscar-winning acting ability) in movies like Swordfish and Monster's Ball. Berry was despondent after her marriage to the former big league slugger came to an end and contemplated ending it all.
Berry, 40, admits in Parade magazine that she was so miserable in the wake of her break-up with baseball player David Justice, she attempted to gas herself. But she pulled out at the last minute. "I was sitting in my car, and I knew the gas was coming when I had an image of my mother [Judith] finding me," Berry told Parade. "She sacrificed so much for her children, and to end my life would be an incredibly selfish thing to do.
Anyone who saw Swordfish would certainly agree with that last statement.
