Salma Hayek Pinault Covers 'InStyle' June 2010

Salma Hayek Pinault Covers 'InStyle' June 2010

Salma Hayek Pinault covers InStyle magazine’s June 2010 issue, on newsstands Friday (May 21).

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?”

  • Jack

  • happy girl

    so pretty.

  • LuckyL

    Oh she finally married him?

  • ayrin

    more than a year ago, dummy.

  • xio pio

    Uhhh, hello Salma, you forgot about your boob job, LOL

  • chalfont

    Didn’t she have a nose job years ago when she was very young to make her face more westernised? Why not Pinault-Hayek? Better to keep your identity.

  • fashionista

    As alwyas Salma really gives great interviews but I’m sorry that dress is FUG!!!! lol

  • anon

    Even though Hayek comes from oil money in Mexico, I would think that the Pinault name has more value globally plus her daughter is now a Pinaut and seems to want to gravitate to that least for now

  • amanda

    Love her!

  • lola


    why are you “surprised” of her marrying him “finally”?
    I do not recall you complaining about other unmarried couples with children not being married.

  • flor

    finally someone that has an interesting thought about plastic surgery! Love you Hayek!

  • pickles

    Salma’s new husband has more money than God!! The least she can do is use his name! Plus it’s good for his business. Free advertising.

    As for the plastic surgery comments, I call bu!!$&&t.

    Salma absolutely has had work done and done very well, actually. They’re sometimes called mini-lifts or “enhancements,” usually around the eyes and the cheekbones. It’s the exact same thing George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Susan Sarandon and Jennifer Aniston have had done. There are some people like Cameron Diaz and Meg Ryan who get terrible results from the wrong procedures and docotors who aren’t that good. The whole trick is for us to not be able to tell the difference. They are supposed to just look well rested and healthier. Riiigght.

    I like Salma. She’s a beauty, and she’s always been a beauty, but even beauties need a little help after 40. I do agree with her about these fools in their 20′s and 30′s.


    ” He makes it easy for me.”



    yeah, i bet the few ‘sheckles’ he has in the bank does EXACTLY that.


  • Jeanne

    Considering that she smokes…I believe she had botox

  • Saudia

    Salma is fabulous !! Love the cover

  • Kelsey

    I love her

  • Protected Mode

    It is so annoying when celebrities believe their offspring to have supernatural abilities..I find it hard to believe that her 3 yr-old daughter , only born in 2007 can read ” Salma Hayek Pinault” and talk like that! Salma is making a mockery of our intelligence!

  • ayrin

    @Protected Mode:
    agree that it seemed really a mature question, but let me copy and paste for you something:
    “…and she saw my chair with my name on it. She said, ‘What does it say there?’ And I said, ‘Salma Hayek”
    se never said she read it.

  • blah

    What is so great about her? Shes a talented whore that married a rich older man, so now she will never have to work again in her life. Thanks to her talent at sucking…….

  • longchamp

    good for her; she married one who loves her just a little more than she does him. smart indeed.

    re the 20 y/o’s comments about freezing muscles w/botox – such is the plight of the idiot; not realizing that if one muscle is frozen, compensatory usage of untreated muscles occurs, such that unless 100% of the muscles in the face are treated, wrinkling WILL happen, and it will occur in very odd ways. these latter day dorian gray wannabes have zero sense.

  • peter

    I’m pretty sure she had breast augmentation. That was the hot topic when she had her daughter b/c folks were asking if she could breastfeed after having implants put in.

  • Tito

    Who cares if she had a boob job she’s still a knockout!

  • Bobby

    Salma is amazingly beautiful I love her knockers

  • e

    That is a absolutely gorgeous dress but not on someone who is a midget.

  • Alexa

    Hey I remember Anna Paquin wearing that dress to a recent event – the Golden Globes?

  • neil

    Oh who is she kidding, nose job. boob job, and claims no tweaking?

  • meli

    boob job or nose jobs would not alter your epression as an actor. Tampering with your muscles will.
    I think she is referring to that.

  • jst1ofme


    you dirty worthless racist!! I bet ur hispanic and a self hater you retard. dont be jealous cuz salma has more money than you can count that she made on her own long before she married Mr. Pinault. Losers like you only get to read about her success, wonderful life and family and hate on her. ha ha ha ha ha sucks for you.

  • Huberth


    I do not know what are you so jealous??? Mr. Pinault hat stated in many interviews that he did all possible and imposible to date her. Salma is a great girl and has worked very hard to be where she is. Hispanic women are not different than western girls…this is all bad “stereotype” and “prejudice”. She has worked very hard to change this bad imagine that Hollywood had from hispanich women. People stereotype because of the need to feel good
