Earlier in December, she praised Hunt at the 4th Annual Celebration of Black Cinema & Television while accepting her Career Achievement Award.

“You know I finally found love this year everybody. Even though you all have been on this painful journey with me,” Berry joked. “You watched me fail and fail and fail. And besides directing my first movie, I also found the love of my life and I know it’s true and this is how I know it’s true.”

“Because you fail so many you know what wrong looks like. Because I failed so many times I now know what [love] really looks like,” she continued. “And so my partner is here tonight, Van, and you have supported me.”

Berry was previously married to actor Olivier Martinez, MLB player David Justice and singer/actor Eric Benét. She shares daughter Nahla, 13, with ex Gabriel Aubry, and son Maceo, 8, with Martinez.
