Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, who has a 15-month-old daughter Nahla with model Gabriel Aubry, is so confident with her appearance she is happy to appear without make-up
Halle Berry doesn't care if she's seen without make-up.
The Oscar-winning beauty refuses to conform to the pressure of looking perfect and is happy to show off her natural beauty.
She is quoted as saying: "All these paparazzi are just out of control, it has added a new pressure. When you just want to go out and be a normal person you get put on that bad clothes list. Or it's like, 'Look, she's got a zit,' and they zero in on it. Or it's, 'Look, she's got cellulite,' and they zero in on that. They make you feel like you can't go out and be a normal girl. I try to resist it and go out without my make-up even though I know I am going to be on that list."
This is not the first time Halle, 42, has spoken about how stressful it is to be a Hollywood star.
When she discovered she was pregnant with her daughter Nahla, who is now 15 months old, Halle found it "liberating" not worrying about her figure at red carpet events.
She said: "It was the first red carpet that I've really walked down where I didn't have to think about holding in my stomach.
"It's the first time I've been to an awards show where they served a meal and I actually ate it. I was eating off everybody else's plate and that felt very liberating and good."
