Halle Berry Opens Up About Abusive Past

Halle Berry has been no stranger to domestic violence - both as a child and as a adult.

"My mother was a battered woman and that was my childhood for a good chunk of it," the star tells NBC's Natalie Morales.

The Oscar-winning actress talks with NBC Nightly News about her abusive history as her inspiration for becoming involved with the Jenesse Center, an Los Angeles shelter that provides support for domestic violence victims.

"I care, I really care about these women and children," says Berry about the center.

Berry has found happiness with her 19-month-old daughter Hala and boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey.
