Being beautiful isn’t easy for mom-to-be Halle Berry, 41.

“I deal with it,” the Things We Lost in the Fire star says. “Earlier in my career, I didn’t want to deal with it at all so I did Jungle Fever and Losing Isaiah. I wanted to force people to not look at the physical image of myself. Then, somewhere along the way, I started to feel comfortable with myself. I can play all kinds of roles. Sometimes I need that part of myself, and other times I can get rid of it and make it less important. But to deny either side of that wouldn’t be fair to myself because I need all of what I am.”
