Halle Berry's 'Surprise Pregnancy' Got in the Way of Her New 'X-Men' Role

Halle Berry isn't in X-Men: Days of Future Past as she wanted to be, and for good reason — turns filming with a bun in the oven is pretty tough, for a variety of reasons. The actress said her "surprise pregnancy" made working on the upcoming movie a "challenge."

"I wasn't in [the movie] as much as I was meant to be," she told Total Film. "[Pregnancy] kind of colored what my involvement could be, which was why I was one of the first ones in and the first ones out."

"My ever-growing belly was posing a constant challenge!" she added. "What I could do was getting more limited, so the role I play is so different from what it could have been, due to my surprise pregnancy."

Being in great shape at 46 made things a little easier, however. "There's no secret, I've just lived a healthy lifestyle," she said. "I only work out like three times a week, 30 minutes a pop. That and good clean living. As I'm getting older it's just paying off."
