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.”
