Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez (Fred Prouser/Reuters)

Berry made the proclamation in a 2007 interview with InStyle, explaining, “Actually it's just that now I've come to a place where I think two people can share their lives without the ring, without the piece of paper.”

Well, she’s in a different place now people. One where she wants to be legally bound to the very handsome French actor, Olivier Martinez.

In a recent interview with “Extra!,” Berry, who has been married twice before, verbally confirmed her engagement for the first time, while admitting the minor backtrack: “Who knew? I swore it off, right? Never say never, people!”

That’s good advice, Halle Berry. I will never say “Never say never” again. Oh wait.
