Halle Berry Packed on the PDA with Boyfriend Van Hunt in a Pantless Photo
They've been dating for nearly a year.
On Saturday, the actress shared a photo of the couple packing on the PDA, and in the snapshot, Berry — who has her arms wrapped around Hunt while kissing him — wore a pair of bikini bottoms and not much else. She complemented the pantless look with a white T-shirt that's tied just above her stomach and red heart-shaped sunglasses.
"We do this thing called whatever the f*** we want!" she captioned the loved-up photo on Instagram — a message that's seemingly aimed directly at her haters.
Earlier this week, Berry spoke to Essence about the downside of sharing her private life on social media, and revealed that the rude comments she receives from trolls can affect her state of mind.
"The thing I hate, and this will never stop, I know because it's the nature of the world, but I really hate the negativity that gets on there. I just really want to like, slap these trolls because it really is damaging to people," she told the magazine. "It's damaging to young people and I really wish that if you really didn't have something [nice] to say, don't say it. If you've got something so negative to say about somebody, why are you on their page?"
Berry did admit, however, that one positive aspect of having her own platform is the ability to show fans her authentic self. "I can say what I want to say about what I want to talk about. It can be in my voice and my words," she continued. "For a long time I felt that the story that was perpetuated about me just wasn't true but it was editorialized by people and it was out of my control. Now I get to control and show different sides of myself. I really love that."
