Actress Halle covers the latest issue of Vogue magazine. In the issue, the actress opens up about her relationship with  her ex-Gabriel Aubry and how she worries for her daughter Nahla’s safety. Read excerpts from the interview below:

On motherhood:

“I have a new focus that’s outside myself,” she says, “and that feels really good, in your 40s, to have arrived at that place. I’m actually lucky and grateful that I waited until an age when I can really be present. I saw my mother in her early 20s having two little kids, and I don’t think she enjoyed me at two the way that I enjoy my daughter. She didn’t have that luxury.”

She adds, “Nature has got it all wrong: When you are younger, it should be harder to get pregnant, and as you get older it should be easier. When you are so ready, you can’t do it to save your life. And when you are 21, you are so not ready, but you are ripe as could be. The eggs should become more developed the older you get, not die slowly from the day you’re born. That’s one thing God got wrong.”

On her biggest worry:

“I worry that this whole insatiable appetite for celebrity children will somehow adversely affect Nahla. I don’t think it’s fair, and I don’t think it’s safe. How will she grow up, having been objectified like this for most of her whole young life? Already they write things about her: Oh, she looks like this; oh, she looks like that. But nobody knows her. They just pick her apart on a very superficial level. How will I be able to help her keep that in perspective in this town?” To that end, she recently rented a house in San Francisco to spend time alone with Nahla away from the glare of celebrity. She’s considering moving there full time, “to have her grow up in a place that is less of a fishbowl.”

On rumors about her break up with Gabriel:

“By the time it hit the papers—full of rumors and lies, with people having to make up problems between us—Gabriel and I had long dealt with it. We were done. And we were on a good foot, and we had decided what we were going to do for Nahla, and we were able to say, ‘This will pass.'”

And did it pass?

“In two weeks!” she says. “Because there was no truth to any of it. There is no discord, there is no fighting. So it came and went. Now we are back to how it was before: living apart, raising our daughter.”

On why they broke up:

“It’s just that you realize you are not meant to go the distance with everybody,” she says. “We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that’s why we came together. And because of that, we are going to be together forever, all three of us. We are a family until we are not here anymore.”
