Halle Berry has denied she's expecting another child after she was pictured holding her swollen-looking stomach.

The 50-year-old Oscar-winner was one of the guests of honour at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball on Sunday night, dazzling in a silver sequin fitted dress. And Hollywood being Hollywood, it was assumed that Berry was pregnant.

Like all women proud of their most recent meal, she seemed to cradle her belly, but as she wrote on Instagram later, she was simply cradling the steak and fries she consumed before the event.

"Can a girl have some steak and fries," she wrote after, poking fun at the rumours.

Similarly, earlier this year Eva Longoria was subjected to the same pregnancy rumours when she was pictured on holidays with a not completely flat stomach (the horror!) putting it down to some cheese.

"I saw some pictures of myself really fat on a boat. I have to tell you all I did was eat cheese," she said in April.

"Everybody is saying I'm pregnant and I'm not I was just lactose intolerant apparently. I just had to share because my whole family is calling me asking me if I'm pregnant. Yes I look pregnant, but it was just a ball of cheese, a ball of cheese in my stomach."

Bravo, ladies.
