Halle Berry is seeking solace from close pal Denzel Washington after the breakup of her marriage to Eric Benet.

OSCAR-winner Halle has told pals Denzel has been a real shoulder to cry on since she left R+B star Benet in October (03), amid accusations of infidelity. The pair had been married only three years when alleged sex addict Benet is said to have cheated on his stunning wife.

Halle and Denzel, who has been married to wife PAULETTA since 1982, were recently spotted having a heart-to-heart at BELLATO'S restaurant in New York.

A mutual pal says, "Halle and Denzel are great friends. She has been in need of support recently because of her marriage break-up. He has been there for her."
