London: Oscar winning actress Halle Berry has admitted that she was shocked with her own decision to marry again.

The "Monster's Ball" star, who recently got engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez, had decided in 2007 that she would never tie the knot again, as reported.

But Berry says one should never say never. "Who knew? I swore it off, right? Never say never, people!.”

Berry had said earlier, "I will never, never get married again. Actually it's just that now I've come to a place where I think two people can share their lives without the ring, without the piece of paper."

The 45-year-old actress has a daughter Nahla, 4, from a previous relationship with Gabriel Aubry. She met Olivier on the sets of 'Dark Tide' and is planning to move to France to be closer to him.

It will be the first marriage for Olivier - who has previously dated Kylie Minogue and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

The former Bond Girl has been married and divorced twice before. She was married to former baseball player David Justice from 1993 to 1997 and to singer Eric Benet in 2001 only to separate two years later.
