There is no doubt that Halle Berry’s new movie “X-Men 3: The Last Stand” will be a big deal when it comes out on May 26.

But as Access Hollywood’s Tim Vincent found out in his latest interview with the Oscar winner, there are much bigger things about to happen in her life.

“You’re coming up to your 40th,” Tim mentioned.

“Ugh, yes I am,” she laughed.

“How do you feel about that?” asked Tim.

“Great. I really do. I’ve learned so much and with each year, I get better and smarter and wiser,” she smiled.

“Do you think it helps that you look 20 as well?” Tim joked.

“Well, you know, I think so,” Halle said.

Just three months shy of her 40th birthday, Halle looks young, happy and up for the next phase of her life.

“I'm moving into a space where I need something more meaningful — another reason to wake up in the morning besides going to do a movie,” Halle explained. “It’s family and children that's the next evolution of my life. I'm putting out those thoughts, so I'm sure that it will manifest — if I adopt, if I have my own, if someone gives me one to take care of, I don't know. It will manifest itself somehow.”

But has Halle finally found the right man to have kids with — boyfriend of 7 months Gabriel Aubry?

The two have been super cozy ever since they met on a Versace photo shoot. Yet, the twice-divorced Berry is adamant — no marriage!

“Won’t be getting married,” Halle insists.

“Well if you do, invite me,” Tim joked.

“You will never get an invite to that,” she said again.

“Definitely, no marriage?” Tim asked one more time.

“No marriage,” she said.

So, if no wedding plans, what about babies?

Well, Halle told Oprah recently if by 40 “there’s no serious man [in my life], whoever I’m dating at the time, I’ll say ‘Hey would you like to have a baby?’” Halle said.

“But you do have a beau and if you are giving out that vibe, it could happen,” Tim suggested.

“Anything could happen,” she agreed. “You put that vibe out there and it will come. I've realized that to be true “

“All I’m going to say is that you are very good looking. He is very good looking. It’s amazing genes and we’re not talking Levis,” Tim said, drawing a final laugh from Halle.
