The new Bond girl

FOR ALL you Halle Berry fans, here's something about the latest Bond girl. Berry is supposed to have confessed that she and her musician husband Eric Benet faced a `staggering crisis' in their relationship during the period of her greatest professional success, when she won her first Oscar in March. However, the couple have managed to put their marriage back on track again!

She may be the star of the first-ever James Bond spin-off. They say that Berry, who 's starring in the role of a good-looking but ruthless CIA agent, Jinx, in the Bond film "Die Another Day", has now agreed to reprise her role for another film, featuring Jinx in the lead role. This is the first time that a character from a Bond film will become star in her own right in another film.
