In case you missed it, over the weekend the world went into meltdown after Halle Berry stepped out at the 16th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in California.
The 50-year-old looked radiant in a glittering silver shift dress but it didn't take long for speculation to mount after she cradled her tummy - with many claiming she looked to have a baby bump.
Well, the mother-of-two has addressed the pregnancy claims and we've fallen in love with her all over again.
Taking to Instagram, the actress shared a close-up shot of herself alongside the cheeky caption: "Can a girl have some steak and fries??"
Accompanying her witty words were the eye-roll and wink emoji.
Well played Halle, well played.
Also, can't a girl just rest her hands on her belly for a little minute without everyone jumping to conclusions?
A rep for the star has also confirmed to People she is not pregnant.
The outing that started it all...

The Academy Award-winner is already the proud mother to nine-year-old daughter Nahla, with her ex Gabriel Aubry, and three-year-old son Maceo, who she shares with ex-husband Oliver Olivier Martinez.
Over the years, Halle's relationships may have made headlines but the one constant have always been her kids.
In 2007, she opened up to Oprah about her struggles to conceive.
"I’m sort of superstitious, so I saved all of the negative [pregnancy] tests in a drawer. Don’t ask! I don’t know why, but I did. … After about 35 tests, we finally got a positive test.”
The star is the proud mother to a daughter and son.
