Halle Berry announced Wednesday that she and hubby Eric Benet have separated after less than three years of marriage. "Eric and I have had marital problems for some time now and have tried to work things out together," the Oscar winner said in a statement. "However, at this point, I feel we need time apart to reevaluate our union. We ask that you respect our privacy as we are going through this emotional time." (Back in 2000, I said this marriage would only last two years. It lasted three. I was wrong — I admit it.)
