When Halle Berry briefly let her hands rest on her stomach at a charity event over the weekend, naturally, the conversation turned to whether the 50-year-old actress was pregnant.
(Because that’s what we should be discussing, right? Not the event itself, the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, which raises money to help people out of poverty and homelessness -- but instead, Berry’s stance on the red carpet, which of course MUST imply that she’s with child). Priorities.
Is Halle Berry pregnant or was she experiencing some additional water weight the night she walked the red carpet? https://t.co/279cjvwSBP— Magic 106.9 (@Magic1069FM) June 5, 2017
The radio station above even referenced that she appears to be carrying some “additional water weight.”
So that was kind.
Apparently, enough tabloids ran with the story that Berry responded Tuesday on her Instagram, simply asking, “Can a girl have some steak and fries?”
Her rep also confirmed to People magazine that Berry is not, in fact, pregnant, according to published reports.
The lesson here? Let a woman in Hollywood enjoy a meal every now and then, paparazzi! But props to Berry. We dig the clap-back.
