SALMA Hayek appreciates being described as “hot” more now than when she was beginning her career.
The 48-year-old actress felt uncomfortable being described as a ‘Bombshell’ in her 1992 movie ‘Desperado’ because she wanted to be known more for her talents than her looks but enjoys attracting attention for her appearance now.
“When you start you’re like, ‘No, I want them to see me for my talent, and know me as an actress. When I did ‘Desperado’, my English was worse than now and I read the reviews that, ‘Salma Hayek was a bombshell,’ and to me this means that I was terrible, that I had bombed. Everyone told me, ‘No, no, it means that you’re great, that you’re sexy!’ And I was like, ‘That’s it? They didn’t talk about my acting? Now?! They want to give me a decade of hotness I’m like, ‘Bring it on!’ You really like to be ‘hot’ after you’re 40,” she explained.
And Salma who has seven-year-old daughter Valentina with husband Francois-Henri Pinault credits her “hotness” to her spouse.
“You know makes you ‘hot’? When you have the hots for someone. I have the hots for my husband, and that keeps you, I think that keeps that in you. When you like somebody it comes out of you, almost naturally, and you’re motivated. Love motivates you,” she added. – Bernama
