We all need someone to talk to once in a while… or for 30 YEARS! LOLz
Halle Berry recently admitted that she has been in therapy for pretty much her whole life to deal with the issues that pertain to her alcoholic father, Jerome, and we're amazed because we always thought The Call actress had her stuff together on her own!!
Miz Berry revealed that her pops was abusive and just plain out mean when she was a child, so instead of bottling her emotions up inside, her mother introduced her to therapy.
The starlet said:
”I've done therapy on an as-needed basis since I was probably 10 years old. My father was an alcoholic and a very abusive one, and my mother knew the value of providing me with the outlet of an unbiased person to talk to, so I've done that all my life when times get stressful. It really helps me deal with stuff."
Therapy has really helped Halle because whenever she has personal issues, she doesn't take 'em out on others because that's exactly what her father did, and she didn't want to take that route.
”I try really hard not to take my problems out on others and, in order to do that, I tend to mask the bad stuff or deal with it internally - you know, keep my chin up, put on a brave face and just keep going. If I do have a problem, I handle it so well that most other people don't even know about it.”
It's great to hear that Berry has herself under control, but we're still a little concerned that she has to rely on a shrink to keep her mind right.
We really hope thats not the case, but if it is, then do your thang Halle!
