Salma Hayek: Future French Knight!

Salma Hayek will be made an official “Knight” in France!

The 45-year-old actress was named on Sunday (January 1) by President Nicolas Sarkozy to receive the Légion d’Honneur, which is a small rosette pin.

According to People, Salma will be received in a “formal induction, which involves a Presidential medal pinning.”

A source says the event will happen sometime within the next two months at the Élysées Palace.

Past recipients include Jerry Lewis, Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford and Robert De Niro.

Congratulations, Salma!

    LOL! This is actually a joke. This is the highest French honour, and we’ve yet to hear WHY she is actually deserving.

    I’m sure it has nothing to do with Sarkozy and Pinault being friends.

  • lord gaga

    yes it is a joke. what has she done for France AT ALL?

  • mina

    All I can say is stop!!! lol

  • call me crazy but…..

    Yeah, agree w the French. Salma should decline this w dignity. If she did that then the French would fall in love w her. If she accepts, then she’ll be known as that American actress who has done nothing to earn the Legion d’Honneur and has dishonored it by accepting. Don’t accept it, Salma, you don’t have a right to it. And tell that Sarkozy he shouldn’t be selling France’s highest honor to the highest bidder.

  • Alrighty then

    Quoi?!?!?! mdr!!! Et elle a fait quoi au juste pour mériter cet honneur? …..ah ouais…. €€€€€

    @call me crazy but…..:
    Refuse it ? You have to actually apply for it to get it. They don’t simply pick you up, you have to ask to receive it. Which is even worse in her case. Anyway, nobody in France takes it seriously anymore, it’s a joke. It used to be for war veterans and brave people… now it’s for naked singers/actors and rich entitled celebs. Disgusting.

  • From Paris with Love

    oops *pick you out

  • WTH

    Someone in her entourage had to ask for it, not her. But I guess the worst part is that she was simply picked up, when other who truly deserve did not. It’s not a joke, you serious advantages out of it t list your descendants do. Anyways, ça ne gêne aucunement sarkosy apparemment… vive le nepotism pour amis proches et riches.

    I see Jared deleted my comment. The truth hurts sweetheart. France has issues with racism- and Salma has denied her Arab blood forever.

  • Yui

    n’importe quoi… je n’ai rien contre elle mais franchement ça frise le ridicule! Combien ça a coûté à Pinault?
