Halle Berry has received racist death threats to her unborn baby. The Oscar-winning beauty - who recently announced she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Gabriel Aubry - has been forced to hire security guards after allegedly receiving several disturbing letters from an anonymous writer.
One note warned she and her child would be "cut into hundreds of pieces".
A source close to the actress told Britain's Daily Mirror: "Halle does not normally use security but she has taken on a couple of guys to make sure."
In 2002, Halle became the first woman of American African descent to win a best actress Oscar for her role in Monster's Ball.
Despite the upsetting threats, Halle is enjoying her pregnancy, and her boyfriend Gabriel has revealed she is craving pickles and bread.
The 32-year-old model told People magazine: "She does crave pickles. And any bread. Doesn't matter, as long as it's salt and pickles."
Gabriel - who met 41-year-old Halle while shooting a Versace advert in November 2005 - also said he was pampering the mom-to-be.
He revealed: "She loves foot massages. I do all of that stuff."
