Hollywood beauty Halle Berry is interrogated by her adopted daughter India whenever she is linked with a mysterious man in the media.

The OSCAR-winning actress adopted India after marrying her father ERIC BENET and, even though she is now divorced from Benet, Berry remains in close contact with the 13-year-old.

So when Berry was recently photographed enjoying 'dates' with heart-throb actor Michael Ealy, the published pictures prompted a deluge of phone calls and emails from a suspicious India.

Berry, 38, says, "India called me up on the phone and said, 'Who is this Michael Ealy?'

"She emailed me too with the same question, having read about us in the media. I had to explain to her that he's a friend and the whole thing had been taken out of context.

"It's hard to sort of keep that straight but I won't allow it to stop me from living my life and having fun."
