Halle Berry 'a hopeless romantic'

Halle Berry admits that she didn't fall prey to love at first sight when she met fiancé Olivier Martinez.

The 46-year-old actress and the 46-year-old French actor became engaged in January.

The pair met on the set of thriller Dark Tide and Halle reveals that she didn't instantly engage with Olivier romantically.

"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 magazine.

Halle has experienced fruitless romantic relationships and failed marriages in the past and she is currently embroiled in a custody battle over daughter Nahla with Gabriel Aubry.

Still, the star has faith in love and she appreciates the way Olivier balances her out.

"It's another one of those never-say-never things. I'm a hopeless romantic, and I won't stop till I get it right!" she gushed.

"[Olivier's] silly, a clown, and very much the life of the party, which is good for someone like me. Danny Downer… been there, done that. Now I like Louie Lightfoot!"

Halle and Olivier are rumoured to be planning to wed in Cape Town, South Africa, the city where Dark Tide was filmed.
