Halle Berry

Her Oscar for Monster's Ball, came at age 35, but Halle Berry, 46, says the best thing that ever happened to her came at age 41, when she gave birth to now 4-year-old daughter Nahla in 2008. That's why she told an interviewer, "I'm not sad at all about turning 40," in 2007, when she was pregnant with her little girl. After a custody battle with Nahla's dad, Gabriel Aubry, Berry seems to be managing that sometimes elusive balance between motherhood and work -- even turning down movie roles to spend time with Nahla. "She is my new favorite thing," she told Vogue about her daughter in 2010. But now Berry is back in theaters, starring in the hit book-to-film sci-fi movie Cloud Atlas. And, when she's not busy working, she's enjoying her engagement to actor Olivier Martinez, who proposed in January.
