Halle Barry Says Beauty Is Meaningless

Interviewed for the opening of her film Catwoman, actress Halle Barry, one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People, commented on physical beauty.

Beauty? Let me tell you something, being thought of as "a beautiful woman" has spared me nothing in life, no heartache, no trouble. Love has been difficult. Beauty is essentially meaningless, and it is always transitory. I can't believe what people do to themselves [to make themselves look beautiful], the excess, and then they end up distorted. Worse, they still have that hole in their soul that led them to change themselves to begin with.
