LOS ANGELES — Halle Berry has amended her divorce filing from actor Olivier Martinez, this time using their real names.

The Oscar-winning actress filed for divorce on Monday using the names "Hal Maria" and "Oliver Martin," but her new filing Wednesday lists their legal names. Martinez filed his own divorce petition on Tuesday, hours after the couple issued a joint statement confirming they were getting divorced.

Aside from listing their legal names, Berry's new petition lists the same details. She cites irreconcilable differences for the breakup and states the pair has a prenuptial agreement and the actors should share the costs of raising their 2-year-old son equally. Both actors are seeking joint custody.

Berry's attorney, Stephen Kolodny, did not return a message Wednesday about why the divorce was initially filed using false names.
