Actress Halle Berry,44, graces the September 2010 issue cover of Vogue. For the candid interview Jonathan Van Meter spends a few days riding around L.A. with Berry and shadows the actress as she enjoys a normal day. The actress revealed that she exercises extensively because she suffers from Diabetes, that she enjoys working with the domestic violence center Jenesse Center and how she felt the first time she thought she had lost her daughter in a store.

On why she has not  interview in so long: “I was burned-out with having other people tell the story about me that they wanted to tell. I told my publicist, ‘I’m not going to talk anymore. I’m just going to live my life and be who I am.”

On why she accepted Vogue’s offer: “What that means for a woman of color and what that means in the fashion world, what that means to pop culture, there was no way I could say, ‘No, I’m not going to be on the biggest issue of the year.”

Biggest misperception about her?: “That I am this brooding, twisted, lovesick person who just can’t get it right in life. Every story about me is so heavy and dramatic. That’s not how I do life. But that’s the impression people have, and that’s what keeps getting reiterated. As if I’m still stuck in all the muck of the past. And I am so not.”
