Salma Hayek Pinault Covers 'InStyle' June 2010
Here’s what the 43-year-old Grown Ups actress had to share:
On changing her name to Salma Hayek Pinault: “It was [daughter] Valentina‘s request. I didn’t think about it until she brought it up. We were shooting a film, and she saw my chair with my name on it. She said, ‘What does it say there?’ And I said, ‘Salma Hayek.’ And she said, ‘What about Pinault? Why not Pinault?’ Because here people say ‘Madame Pinault.’ I said to myself, ‘ This is who I am now. I’m starting a whole new life. I’ve never been happier. Why shouldn’t I share it with the people who have been supporting me my whole career, who have been with me since the beginning? ‘ I’m a private person, but I should let them in on the fact that I’m a different person, and a better person. It’s a new life.”
On whether there are cultural differences between her and her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault: “Nooo, I love him. I ridiculously love him. He makes it easy for me. He’s so open, and his family is too-so international-and fascinating and warm. I only speak French to his children. I don’t know how, but they understand my French. Plus, he and I have the same interests, which is wonderful. Like soccer.”
On whether she’d ever have plastic surgery: “No surgical tweaks. No Botox either. Look. [She raises her eyebrows.] I think it is terrible, these girls in their late 20s injecting their faces and lips. One told me, ‘If I kill my muscles now, I’ll never get wrinkles.’ Can you imagine?”
