But the 46-year-old committed the cardinal sin when she admitted to Chelsea Lately that the film she met her fiancé Olivier Martinez, 46, on was 's**t'.
Luckily, she managed to talk up her latest project, the big screen adaptation of David Mitchell's best-selling, Cloud Atlas... despite its so so critical reception.

'You don't expect it to be as bad as it is sometimes,' she told host Chelsea Handler according to Us Magazine. 'Then it comes out, and you think, 'F**k. That's what I did?'"
But Handler pointed out: 'You met your fiance on a movie.'
'On a sh**t movie,' Berry said of Dark Tide, a $25million thriller that came out earlier this year and earned less than $500,000 at the box office.
The flick co-starred Olivier Martinez, who the actress has been dating since filming finished in 2010.
Berry has a 4-year-old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
The pair are locked in a bitter custody battle as Berry wants to relocate to France with Martinez, citing safety reasons.
Her wish has not yet been granted though both her lawyer and Aubry's have submitted all their evidence to court.
She was previously married to baseball player David Justice and R&B singer Eric Benet.
