Halle Berry: 'I should have married Muhammad Ali'

Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, resplendent in a midnight blue dress and smile to match, stole the show at a star-studded fundraiser in Phoenix headlined by Muhammad Ali over the weekend.

She didn't steal the former boxing champ, however. With a wink and a smile of her own, Ali's wife, Lonnie, made sure of that, reports former USA TODAY staffer Greg Boeck.

Among the honorees at Celebrity Fight Night -- a gala event that raised $6.6 million for the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center to bring its 17-year total to $72 million -- twice-wed Berry told the crowd, "I would have been better off not marrying all these other men. I should have married Muhammad Ali instead.''

Answered Lonnie: "Now, wait a minute.''

After her acceptance speech, Berry planted a major smooch on Ali. Also honored was Go Daddy CEO and founder Bob Parsons, who pledged $1 million to the center.

A live auction featured two donors who paid $400,000 each to have dinner with singer Reba McEntire at her Beverly Hills home and another donor who paid $400,000 to have dinner with entertainer Billy Crystal and actor Robert De Niro in New York. American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson and this year's Idol finalists were among the performers.
