She famously said she was through with marriage following her devastating divorces from David Justice and Eric Benet.
But perhaps Halle Berry may be ready to try for third time lucky with her latest squeeze Olivier Martinez. The 45-year-old actress has set tongues wagging after being spotted with a sparkler on her wedding finger.
The Catwoman star was snapped wearing a golden ring with a large emerald gemstone in the centre as she enjoyed New Year's Day with her family on Malibu Beach.
Do you have something to tell us? Halle Berry was spotted with a ring on her engagement finger as she enjoyed New Years Day with her beau Olivier Martinez
If her beau Olivier has decided to make an honest woman of Halle, it seems to have happened over Christmas.
The Monster's Ball favourite was first spotted with the ring on December 29 as she enjoyed a romantic date with the French hunk
And again: She was also wearing the ring when the pair had a romantic lunch in Beverly Hills on December 29
If the pair, who have been dating since filming unreleased thriller Dark Tide at the end of 2010, have become engaged then it means Halle has changed her opinion about the virtue of marriage.

'I've come to a place now where I think two people can share their lives without the ring, without the piece of paper.'
Of course, at the time she was dating hunky model Gabriel Aubry, and her opinion on him has also changed a lot since then.
Despite the fact they had daughter Nahla together in 2008, they had a less than amicable split in 2010, and have been fighting in the courts over custody of their child.
X-Men star Halle was spotted today in Brentwood, California, however the ring could not be seen as she was carrying a bag.
It is not the first time rumours have circulated the couple have become engaged.

Close: Olivier Martinez has become close to Halle's daughter Nahla and they played together on New Years DayIn January 2011 it was claimed they had agreed to tie the knot after she was spotted wearing a ring on her engagement finger, but it turned out to be a false alarm.
It would not be the first time Olivier will have been close to marriage, though the 45-year-old has never wed.
He was rumoured to be close to marrying his ex Kylie Minogue, who he dated for over four years.
But the Aussie warbler and French thespian split in February 2007.
At the time they said the decision to separate was mutual and added that they remained 'very close friends'.
So close he even took Halle to see his former lover's show in May last year.
Halle has been married twice before, to baseball star David Justice from 1992 to 1997, and to musician Eric Benét from 2001 to 2005.
The Mail contacted Halle's representative, but have yet to receive a response.
