Halle Berry is the cover girl for the September issue of 'Vogue Magazine'. In the interview she speaks in depth about being a mother, her love life and refusing to settle for less.

Here are a few excerpts from the issue... 

“I’m not done with love, but I refuse to settle. I am a hopeless romantic. I won’t stop till I get it right.
I don’t think I’m unlike a lot of people. I am just someone who is trying to find that mate, and I think it’s a really hard thing to do. And I’m not willing to stay somewhere where I am really not happy. And I am not willing to pretend. I am for the kid’s sake or so that I don’t have to go through another public humiliation. It’s about accepting who we really are, not who we want to be. As much as I have always wanted to be in this committed relationship and have the picket fence and grow old with the same person, I’m coming to terms with: Maybe that’s just not who I am...

I worry that this whole insatiable appetite for celebrity children will somehow adversely affect Nahla. I don’t think it’s fair, and I don’t think it’s safe. How will she grow up, having been objectified like this for most of her whole young life? Already they write things about her: Oh, she looks like this; oh, she looks like that. But nobody knows her. They just pick her apart on a very superficial level. How will I be able to help her keep that in perspective in this town...

I have a new focus that’s outside myself and that feels really good, in your 40s, to have arrived at that place. I’m actually lucky and grateful that I waited until an age when I can really be present. I saw my mother in her early 20s having two little kids, and I don’t think she enjoyed me at two the way that I enjoy my daughter. She didn’t have that luxury. Nature has got it all wrong: When you are younger, it should be harder to get pregnant, and as you get older it should be easier".
