Last week, Berry lost control with photographers camped out in front of daughter Nahla’s pre-school, screaming, “I’m doing something honorable -- I’m not harassing people!” and calling him expletives.
 
Berry told Mario, “I hate that I lost my cool, but you know, I'm human. That happens and when it comes to my daughter, I'm ferocious!”

The Oscar-winning actress lamented there isn’t much that can be done about this invasion of privacy. “You know, I don't know… I've been struggling for years. There are no laws here that protect our children and as a mom, coming to the school… not only my child, but all the children that are there. It's just wrong, wrong, wrong.”
 
Halle added, “You know, I think I'm going call Obama and say look, can you help us? I know this seems like a little issue right now. But it’s a big issue in our lives and our lives at the school and our children being protected. I think it’s really, really important.”
 


Berry was also pleased to be a part of the EIF/Revlon Run/Walk for Women, which raises money for cancer research. “I've lost so many people. I know people struggling right now with cancer.”
