Halle Berry, 46, met Olivier Martinez, 47 in Cape Town, South Africa on the set of their film Dark Tide in 2010. “When I first met Olivier, there wasn’t the initial ‘I’m in love!’ It was something that grew more gradually — and it feels more real because of that,” she told InStyle in November 2012.
The world first got a glimpse of Halle and Olivier as a couple when they were seen strolling through the streets of Paris in the fall of 2010.
Halle and Olivier quickly became one of the sexiest couples in Hollywood. You better work that red dress, Halle!
Halle gets a romantic tour of Olivier’s hometown. The couple looked very much in love as the held hands while strolling through The Left Bank of Paris where they visited the The Jardin du Luxembourg park.
Two years into their relationship, Halle admitted that prior to meeting Olivier, she’d never been great at picking men. “God just wanted to mix up my life. Maybe he was thinking, ‘This girl can’t get everything! I’m going to give her a broken picker,'” she told the New York Times’ T Magazine. She says her “picker” is fixed now.
Halle, Olivier and her 5-year-old daughter Nahla became an instant family soon after they began dating.
The couple looked so connected they even began dressing alike.
Halle and Olivier love traveling the world. Here they are spotted out and about in Nallorca, Spain with her daughter Nahla.
Halle soon began riding Olivier’s custom motorcycle to get around in Los Angeles.
Halle loves Olivier’s sense of humor. “He’s silly, a clown, and very much the life of the party, which is good for someone like me,” she told InStyle. “Danny Downer … been there, done that. Now I like Louie Lightfoot!”

Olivier commissioned his Parisian neighbor, Robert Mazlo to create Halle’s engagement ring in 2011. It’s “a one-of-a-kind piece and cannot be replaced,” the jeweler told People.
“Who knew [I’d get engaged again]?” Berry told Extra shortly after Olivier proposed in 2012. “I swore it off, right? Never say never, people,”
