Want to see Halle Berry panic? Separate her from her daughter.

"Talk about sweating," the Oscar-winning actress, 44, said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, of a recent incident where she lost daughter Nahla, 3, in a department store. "You just freak out for about 30 seconds. I came undone. I think my head projected off my body."

Berry recalled browsing some clothing when she noticed her child was missing. "All of a sudden, I looked down at a price tag or something, and she toddled off for what seemed like two seconds," she said. "The next thing I know, I looked back around and it was like, Whoosh! Gone! And I said, 'Nahla? Nahla? Nahla?' Gone. My heart just started … I'm like, 'Close the store! Shut the door! My daughter's gone!'"
