Salma Hayek Covers 'Harper's Bazaar UK' November 2012

Salma Hayek strikes a fierce pose on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK‘s November 2012 issue, on newsstands now.

Here is what the 46-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On Hollywood’s unforgiving nature towards aging ladies: “The worst thing you can be in Hollywood is a woman and over 40. On top of that, I have an accent, am dyslexic, short and chubby. You name it I have it, but I am here. I must be the luckiest girl in the world to be working.”

On not getting caught up in the dieting craze: “I am on the limit of chubbiness because I love my food and my wine. It’s not the best for fashion, but it’s good for my mood. I am happy because I eat. I am 46; I will not have Botox. You know why? – I don’t need to do it Because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetables, I eat everything. If you exercise too much and you don’t eat enough, it takes its toll on the skin. Everything starts ageing. If you don’t eat carbs, you slow your metabolism down. And you know what? You look miserable. The truth is I just don’t have the drive to be the prettiest and the thinnest. I can be happy for other people for their beauty. Learn to be happy for others and you can never run out of happiness.”

On Madonna still showing so much skin in her fifties: “Do I envy Madonna‘s body? Yes. Do I thank God that she has it? Yes! If you’re fifty something and you look like Madonna, and you put a lifetime’s work in the way you look, then flash it to the world!”

    Good for her and so true…and I wouldn’t say chubby I’d say normal. She looks beautiful.

    like Gregory answered I am impressed that a person able to profit $5542 in four weeks on the internet. have you read this web page (Click on menu Home more information)

  • Mia

    Lovely as always !

  • Josephine

    So who is the woman on the cover again? Because it does not look like Salma – not her face, not her waistline and not her coloring. I don’t understand why magazines even bother to invite those celbrities to do the photoshoots if they don’t want to show the real pictures but artificial versions of them created with PS, looking like completely different people. Wouldn’t it be easier to do it entirely on the computer?

  • Celebrate

    I love that she isn’t shaming others. So refreshing.

  • Luke

    LOL at her saying she’s chubby and when you look at the cover, she’s skinny as f*ck

  • Heather

    that all salma do now just talk about her body.We get the point Salma .

  • Heather


    well To her huband she fat.

  • Sal

    She is not chubby at all. She is lovely <3

  • Sunny

    I don’t like Salma that much. I think she is too full of herself, but she has amazing skin for her age, so it must be true that eating a well balanced diet that includes carbs and fat keeps your skin young.

  • jane

    Salma H is pretty but this picture doesn’t really look like her. Too much make up photoshopped.

    She doesn’t look like this in person.

    She’s getting to be obssessed of herself.

  • bum

    Blah blah blah
    My friend just saw her in Paris and said she is really skinny in person.
    And her man is a gazillionaire of course she’s a lucky girl.

  • XxXxX

    I love her. I think she is BEAUTIFUL. I love her body, it’s rightly curvy. Maybe I like her that much because she’s kinda like me, you know, girls with huge boobies. She represents us. I love her for that.

  • Why

    Hey, if she is so confident and happy in her real body, why not to show her it as it is, without thinning her waist and other airbrushing?

  • lisa

    She is so ugly, this is not her face and body…

  • KissThis

    gorgeous! Salma is lucky… she one of the few in Hollywood who doesn’t need photoshop or airbrushing. When they do it, it’s extremely minimal unlike other celebs’ photos.

  • Green

    Are you kidding? By HW standards Salma’s considered OBESE! She’s lucky that all the fat goes to the right places. Anyway, media personalities can talk about how average they look all they like; the fact is, it’s still all about appearances unless you’re Meryl Streep or Cate Blanchett talented

  • ashhey

    look at that! The proud Latina all white!

  • Kelli

    Is that even her?

  • Jim

    That is just one more reason to ban Photoshop. Salma is a beautiful woman with an amazing figure. What they did to her in this bad Photoshop job is make her look freakish. Doesn’t anyone even check these before they go to print?

  • Mhy Ellen

    Salma Hayek is truly one of the sexiest women in Hollywood right now. And I heard her breasts are 100% real. She’s on this list of the best, surgery-free boobs in Hollywood:
