Salma Hayek: Acne Caused 'Severe, Severe Depression'
Here’s what the 45-year-old actress had to share:
On her skin struggles: “You want to talk about bad skin? I had acne. And this acne was so bad, it sent me into a severe, severe depression. Like I couldn’t leave the house. I’d wake up in the morning and lie there and touch my face before I got up, just to prepare myself to look in the mirror! The next stage with that sort of depression is food: too little, or too much. Guess what I did? I mean, I was fat and broken out, I couldn’t leave the house and I couldn’t pay the rent!”
On Botox: “Trust me I’ve been tempted – but I resist! think about what happens to your muscles – and your skin – if you’re sick and don’t move for a few days. It all atrophies! Plus, if you freeze a muscle in your face, other muscles have to compensate! And once you stop, what does that look like? You know Latin people? African-American people? How our skin ages more slowly? Even though we’re dramatic, we move our faces, we eat higher- fat foods, we’re the ones with fewer wrinkles—it makes you wonder.”
On pal Demi Moore: “[I’m] not like Demi. She’s so disciplined, I wish I could be like that … You watch, Demi will be back. She’s an inspiration to all women.”
