Salma Hayek: 'My Life Right Now Is Happiness'

Salma Hayek: 'My Life Right Now Is Happiness'

Salma Hayek strikes a pose in Alexander McQueen on the cover of InStyle‘s July issue, on newsstands June 15.

Here’s what the 45-year-old actress had to share:

On her roles as beauty brand creator, actress, mom, wife: “As a working woman, you still have to do all the things you do in your everyday life and, you know, it adds up and gets to be a lot … I have created a very happy, healthy environment. This is who I am, and this is what I’m about. When a job is over, I go home to my life. Everything in my life right now is happiness.”

On her daughter, Valentina: “This morning I was feeling jet-lagged. I was still in bed when I heard somebody run into the room. Valentina jumped on my bed and hugged me, and I go, ‘What are you doing? You scared me!’ She started giggling and said to me, ‘You desperately needed my energy.’ I was so surprised she said that. A 4-year-old! And she’s holding me, and it’s so beautiful – and she was so right!”

On her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault: “He’s very romantic, and so am I. What’s really romantic are the moments that are unexpected. You can fly somewhere overnight to make [being together] ‘important,’ but it’s the little things of everyday life that count. Sometimes a laugh can be very romantic – or taking care of the other person and being generous with each other.”

    Salma Hayek should divorce her husband as soon as possible because her husband is indeed a disgusting pig who lacks good morals. Everyone should start boycotting her husband’s companies, stop watching his French soccer team and refuse to buy shares of stock in his companies because this will let Pinault and Hayek learn that we think that Pinault is an awful scumbag for neglecting his son Augie. Salma Hayek’s products should also be boycotted until she gets divorced from this stupid obnoxious jerk.
