She’s illustrious for her sensational hourglass figure and show-stopping curves.
But Salma Hayek admitted that she has never been disciplined when it comes to exercise, and is even less inclined since turning 50.
Opening up to NET-A-PORTER’s digital magazine The EDIT, the Desperado star confessed she has never succumbed to the size pressures of Hollywood, though she insisted she does like to look good for her husband, French businessman François-Henri Pinault.
Salma Hayek was interviewed by The Edit this month about how she deals with the aesthetic pressures of Hollywood and she looked stunning throughout the issue.
Here she was rocking a floral ensemble with mismatching prints, donning a blouse with ruffled sleeves by Erdem and an asymmetric skirt from Preen by Thornton Bregazzi. We love the layered design and the dark hue contrasting with the bright flowers which means it’ll work perfectly for both the summer and autumn seasons.
She confessed: ‘I will sometimes say, “I am 50 years old! Why do I have to look good? I already got my guy!” But then, I don’t want to lose the guy, either.’
Admitting that she loves her shapely silhouette, the mother-of-one continued: ‘I love the world “curvy”; it’s artistic.
‘A straight line can be boring. [But] I’m not going to lie to you, I would like the curve to go in instead of out in some places.’
The candid interview also saw Salma – who has been married to her husband François since 2009 – reveal that the chairman and CEO of luxury fashion conglomerate Kering also calls her ‘electric’.

Confessing that her husband’s love of fashion often sees him comment on her red carpet looks, Salma divulged that he also has a soft spot for her naturally curly tresses.
She explained: ‘[My husband] loves my curly hair. I say, “I cannot go to the event with my crazy curly hair,” and he says, “But that’s who you are – you are electrical. They connect you to the power and you’re electric. That’s why your hair is like that”.’
Though she admitted they don’t always see eye to eye on her sense of style, quipping: ‘I recently wore a pink wig. Naomi Campbell inspired me. My husband hated it; he said, “You are crazy”.’Salma and her husband
She affirmed: ‘[Women] are a lot more demanding of ourselves than men are. It’s a horrible sensation – we’re not enough at work; we’re not enough for the guy who’s cheating on us; we’re not enough for our children who always want more of us, no matter what we give.’
The Mexican-American producer also claimed that women have to do more hard work than men, protesting: ‘Women work harder than men and are more demanding of themselves, yet they have the sensation they don’t do enough, and therefore they are less daring about asking for a better position or salary.
‘Men do a lot less, they are less demanding on themselves and their standards are lower, yet they feel entitled to ask for a raise.
Salma also opened up about the pitfalls of aging, revealing the worst thing hasn’t been finding wrinkles, instead it’s having to rely on reading glasses.
She confessed: ‘The worst part of the aging process has been my eyes. Not the wrinkles – the eyes themselves.
‘I’m such a visual person and [now] I cannot read without depending on glasses. It has been really, really sad. The eyes, for me, that’s worse than the menopause.’
While she’s one of Hollywood’s most beloved stars, Salma also admitted that she can sometimes turn into a ‘b***ch’, quipping: ‘When I’m unhappy, sometimes I become a b***h. Sometimes I drink a beer. It works. I also meditate. I breathe. But first, I become a b***h.”
