Halle Berry Takes On a Kidnapper in New Trailer for ‘The Call’ (VIDEO)

Meet Halle Berry, phone operator.

On Friday, Sony and Tristar gave Berry fans around the world a first look at her new film The Call (formerly known as Hive). In the picture, a 911 operator named Jordan (Berry) receives a phone call from a teenage girl (Abigail Breslin) who is trapped in her kidnapper’s trunk.

The twist? The kidnapper is believed to be the same serial killer Jordan failed to catch in a previous emergency phone call.

Michael Imperioli and Morris Chestnut also star in the film, out Mar. 15.

The Call is one of at least two films Berry will star in this year, along with Movie 43, a movie made up of 12 different storylines and a large ensemble cast.

Featuring the directing talents of the likes of Elizabeth Banks and Brett Ratner, the comedy stars Hugh Jackman, Emma Stone, Chloe Grace Moretz, Uma Thurman and Jason Sudeikis, just to name a few.

Berry stars in a storyline opposite Kate Winslet.

Hollywood’s Engagement Rings: Who Had the Best Bling in 2012? (POLL)

From colorful rings to traditional baubles, Hollywood’s brides-to-be made quite a sparkly statement in 2012.

The past 12 months have showcased a number of notable jewelry ranging from Blake Lively‘s light pink diamond ring, Halle Berry‘s emerald dazzler, and, most recently, Kelly Clarkson‘s canary diamond sparkler.

“It’s a yellow canary diamond with diamonds around it and Brandon designed it with Jonathan Arndt! They did an amazing job! I can’t wait to make Brandon’s ring with Jonathon as well!” Clarkson shared on her WhoSay account Saturday.

While many starlets opted for out-of-the-ordinary jewels, others kept it sweet and classic, like Angelina Jolie‘s custom-cut stunner from Brad Pitt and Avril Lavigne‘s 14-carat pear-shaped ring from Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger.

And with so many shapes and sizes to choose from, it’s no wonder why so many stars (and their hot fiancés) opt for the biggest and best engagement bling.

Gabriel Aubry’s Court Date Canceled, Will Face Halle Berry’s Fiance Olivier Martinez at Office Hearing Instead

The case against Gabriel Aubry, the ex-boyfriend of Halle Berry who got into a physical altercation with Berry’s fiance, Olivier Martinez, on Thanksgiving, will be settled out of court, E! News has confirmed.

Aubry, who was scheduled to be arraigned in court on charges of misdemeanor battery Thursday morning, will instead meet with Martinez at a hearing at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, according to spokesman Frank Mateljan.

“[They have] decided to schedule a City Attorney’s Office hearing in this matter,” Mateljan told E! News on Wednesday. “We are in the process of contacting the parties to set up that hearing. Mr. Aubrey’s counsel has been informed that [Thursday’s] court date will be vacated.”

It’s just the latest break in the case for Aubry, who was left visibly bruised and beaten by the altercation.

Late last month, after what felt like an eternity of arguments, the Canadian-born model and Berry finally reached an “amicable agreement” in the custody battle over their four-year-old daughter, Nahla.

Berry had previously tried to move Nahla to Martinez’s home country of France, she said to avoid the paparazzi in Los Angeles. A judge later denied her request.

Aubry, 37, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery after he engaged in a physical fight with Martinez inside Berry’s home. He was later released on $20,000 bail.

In the days after, Berry obtained an emergency protection order against Aubry, which ordered him to stay at least 100 yards away from Berry, Martinez and Nahla.

Bond Girls Hit the Beach: Who Has the Best Bikini Body? (PHOTOS & POLL)

Former Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko looked amazing recently when she showed off her stunning body as she hit the sand and surf of Miami Beach.

The Ukranian beauty – who starred in Quantum of Solace opposite Daniel Craig – sizzled in a sexy blue monokini as she splashed around with her boyfriend and Magic City co-star Danny Huston.

The former ballet dancer obviously keeps herself in tip-top condition with a figure that most women would simply die for.

But when is comes to flaunting her killer curves Kurylenko, 33, has plenty of competition from other natural Bond beauties like Gemma Arterton, 26, Halle Berry, 46, Terri Hatcher, 48, and Denise Richards, 41.

Berry set male pulses racing when she stepped-out on the beach in Malibu wearing an orange bikini top and colorful sarong while British stunner Arterton looked amazing in her tiny black bikini as she enjoyed her vacation in Morrocco.

Not to be out done, Hatcher turned other female beach-goers “green with envy” when she displayed her ample assets in a skimpy emerald color bikini on the golden sands of Maui in Hawaii.

And Richards did not leave anyone feeling blue when she wore a tiny ocean colored bikini while she enjoyed the beautiful beaches of the Bahamas.

So, which former Bond Girl do you think has the best best bikini body? Take a look through the gallery of real life Bond girls on the beach above, then vote in Celebuzz’s poll below and let us know what you think.

Halle Berry and Daughter Nahla Frolic on Malibu Beach (PHOTOS)

Halle Berry and her daughter Nahla spent some quality mother-daughter time together on Sunday, putting their recent family drama behind them.

The actress and her four-year-old daughter walked  along the Malibu coastline and played in the sand. They were clearly in a playful mood, as Nahla jokingly took a nap on the sand and Berry laughed as she encouraged her daughter to get back up.

The two then met up with Berry’s fiance Olivier Martinez for lunch; they reportedly dined at Geoffrey’s in Malibu.

Just the night before, Berry and Martinez had enjoyed a date night in Los Angeles, where they reportedly watched a televised version of Juan Manuel Marquez and Manny Pacquiao’s boxing match.

The public outing came just weeks after Martinez’s Thanksgiving Day brawl with Berry’s ex — and Nahla’s father — Gabriel Aubry.

 

Aubry won’t be charged with a crime after he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery for apparently starting the fight. As Celebuzz previously reported, Berry and Martinez both felt it would not be in the best interest of Nahla not to press charges.

Instead, Aubry is expected to agree to anger management courses, though there is a chance that the case — which is due for an informal hearing at the city attorney’s office in Los Angeles — may be dropped altogether.

Halle Berry’s Ex Gabriel Aubry Won’t Be Prosecuted in Thanksgiving Brawl Case (REPORT)

Halle Berry’s ex Gabriel Aubry won’t be charged with a crime after he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery for fighting with Berry’s fiance Olivier Martinez on Thanksgiving morning, sources tell TMZ.

The reason: Berry and Martinez feel it would not be in the best interest of Berry and Aubry’s four-year-old daughter, Nahla.

Instead, Aubry is expected to agree to anger management courses, though there is a chance that the case — which is due for an informal hearing at the city attorney’s office in Los Angeles — may be dropped altogether.

This comes just days after Berry and Aubry reached an agreement in their long-gestating custody battle over Nahla.

“The parties have reached an amicable agreement. There will be no further statements regarding this matter,” an attorney for Berry told reporters on Friday.

For months, Berry had tried to move Nahla to Martinez’s home country of France to protect her from the paparazzi. A judge denied her request in November.

Aubry, 37, was arrested on Thanksgiving and charged with misdemeanor battery following a heated argument inside Berry’s home. The argument, which detectives have concluded was instigated by Aubry, left visible injuries on both Aubry and Martinez.

Berry subsequently obtained an emergency protection order against Aubry, which said he could not come within 100 yards of Berry, Nahla or Martinez.

Gabriel Aubry Reunites With Daughter Nahla Following Settlement With Halle Berry (PHOTOS)

No drama here.

One day after reaching a custodial settlement with his ex Halle Berry, Gabriel Aubry was spotted out and about with the former couple’s daughter Nahla in Los Angeles.

Aubry, 37, donned a pair of shades, a hoodie and a baseball cap as he picked up his 4-year-old from school.

On Thursday, Berry’s attorney Blair Berk held up a piece of paper outside a Los Angeles court with the following handwritten message, according to TMZ:

“The parties have reached an amicable agreement. There will be no further statements regarding this matter.”

 

In other developments related to Aubry’s Thanksgiving Day brawl with Berry’s fiancé Olivier Martinez, the Canadian model has dropped his restraining order against the French actor.

TMZ reports that Aubry’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, told an L.A. judge that her client no longer needed the order.

Just over one week ago, Aubry, who was in a relationship with Berry from 2005 to 2010, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery following a brawl on Berry’s property. He is due in court Dec. 13.

This week, Justin Bieber got a case of the boos — on home soil. The 18-year-old superstar was a special guest at the 100th Grey Cup in Toronto, where he performed “Boyfriend,” “Beauty and a Beat” and other hits, but his performance was met with a sea of boos from the football crazed crowd.

“Honored to perform for my country. #ProudCanadian. Good luck in the second half. thanks,” he wrote on Twitter, without a mention of the hiccup.

Meanwhile, after a poorly received made-for-TV movie in Liz & Dick, Lindsay Lohan made big headlines this week when she allegedly punched a woman at a club in New York City.

She was arrested in the wee hours of Thursday morning and was charged with third-degree assault.

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry Reach Custody Settlement (REPORT)

Peace at last? Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have reportedly reached a settlement according to TMZ.

Both parties had their lawyers in court this morning to settle the custodial arrangement of their four-year-old daughter Nahla.

Berry’s attorney Blair Berk walked into the hallway outside of the Los Angeles court and help up a piece of paper with this handwritten message: “The parties have reached an amicable agreement. There will be no further statements regarding this matter.”

The news comes at the end of a dramatic week for the two of them.

TMZ reported earlier this week that Berry was set to seek a restraining order against Aubry.

According to the report, Berry, 46, hopes to extend the emergency order of protection issued to her last week after Aubry got into a bloody fight with Berry’s fiance, Olivier Martinez, on Thanksgiving day.

The protection, which ordered Aubry to stay 100 yards away from Berry, the couple’s four-year-old daughter, Nahla, and Martinez, expires Tuesday.

Aubry, 37, was arrested last Thursday and charged with misdemeanor battery following a heated argument inside Berry’s home. Aubry, who is due back in court on Dec. 13, was released on $20,000 bail.

Both Aubry and Berry’s lawyers were not available for comment at press time.

Are you happy to see these two come to an agreement? Weigh in below.

Gabriel Aubry’s Bruised Face: ‘He Will Have to Take Time Off From Modeling,’ Says Janice Dickinson (EXCLUSIVE)

Gabriel Aubry probably won’t be striking a pose anytime soon.

Following his Thanksgiving day throw-down with ex-girlfriend Halle Berry‘s fianceé Olivier Martinez, Aubry was hospitalized with a fractured rib, bruises to the face and cuts that required stitches. And for the French-Canadian model, those injuries carry career consequences.

“He will have to take some time off from modeling, so, that his face heals,” former supermodel Janice Dickinson told Celebuzz of Wilhelmina model Aubry, who is one of the top-earning males in the industry. “I feel bad because he got a savage beating and nobody deserves that.”

In the aftermath of the brutal brawl, Aubry was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery. Berry was awarded an emergency restraining order against her ex, requiring him to stay 100 years away from the actress, their 4-year-old daughter Nahla and Martinez. Though he claimed Martinez attacked him first in the fight, Aubry has now been labeled the aggressor in the showdown outside of Berry’s Hollywood home on Nov. 22, according to a police report.

Still, Dickinson feels for all Aubry is facing. “I have sympathy for Gabriel Aubry. He is just trying so see his daughter and live his life,” the former America’s Next Top Model judge said. “I do not believe that it makes [Aubry] a bad guy.” And after seeing Aubry’s battered face following the brutal scuffle, Dickinson is placing blame for the damage done: “I think that Martinez should be jailed after that attack.”

Since splitting in 2010, Berry and Aubry have shared custody of Nahla. But any cordiality between the exes turned contentious after Berry sought the court’s permission to move their daughter to Paris, France, where the actress would live with her France native fiancé — a request which the judge denied.

“It was not fair that they wanted to take [his daughter Nahla] to another country away from her father,” explained Dickinson. “I think at this point that they all need therapy and the focus should be on the child, because nobody wants her to suffer emotionally because of all of this.”

Meanwhile, Aubry will have to wait for his moneymaker to make a full recovery before returning to his illustrative career, which has seen him model for Valentino, Versace, Calvin Klein and DKNY among others. “Hopefully, his face will heal,” Dickinson said. “The guy was a top male model within the industry.”
