“My grandmother was energetic and fearless – a talented poet and songwriter.

“Imagine if I’d said, ‘I have to be the best actress – I want that and nothing else.’ I never would have directed. I never would have produced. I never would have done a beauty line.

“‘Frida’ was a joy; this was delicious, I couldn’t wait every day to get to the set, although I was exhausted, and have my leg get cut off or lose the baby or be in her shoes and get to play my hero and be able to go places emotionally. You know, we live for parts like this. This is a dream for an actor.” – Salma Hayek

“I’m concerned about my daughter because she will not believe in Santa Claus. No matter what I say to her, she just doesn’t buy it, and she’s 2. I refuse to give it up. I say, ‘There is a Santa Claus,’ and she says, ‘Okay, Mommy. In pretend world, right?’ She really doesn’t believe.” – Salma Hayek

“Beauty products always cheer me up and give me hope. If it makes you feel pretty, why not?” – Salma Hayek

“I love to cook when I have the time. I don’t cook French or Mexican food with exact recipes.

Sometimes not so lucky, and I say, ‘Let’s go out to dinner.'” – Salma Hayek

“I believe that change keeps you young.” – Salma Hayek

“I’ve never had anything done on my face. I’ve never had dermabrasion or peels or injections of any kind, nothing.” – Salma Hayek

“I have always been an active part of my community.” – Salma Hayek

“I want my little girl to tell me who she is so I can encourage her and not impose my desires for her on her life. I want her to dream big and to know that if she is willing to earn it, she can have anything – and become anything.” – Salma Hayek

“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?” – Salma Hayek

“I think if you are young and you have children, you still have so much to prove. When you have children later in life, you lose a bit of that urge for working.” – Salma Hayek

“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.” – Salma Hayek

“I received so many hate letters when I breast-fed a starving baby in Africa. I was in Sierra Leone in 2009, and I was weaning my child at that time – she was not there with me. There was a hungry baby who was crying because his mother had no milk, and I thought, ‘Why throw away my milk if I can give it to a baby who needs it?'” – Salma Hayek

“The thought of somebody pulling and cutting around my face gives me a stomach ache. Plastic surgery would be so painful. What if it doesn’t look good? What if they made a mistake? I couldn’t do it.” – Salma Hayek

“Before I had my child, animals were my life. I slept with four dogs in my bed.” – Salma Hayek

“My mother was devoted to helping people – with my father’s money! – who had great voices but didn’t have the financial means to study music. He and my mum gave away dozens of music scholarships, and my mum opened a school in town, introduced opera to children, and created fantastic programmes.” – Salma Hayek

“I like being a mother. For some people, it’s so much work that it can be a burden. But it’s not for me, maybe because I had my daughter, Valentina, later on in life, at 41.” – Salma Hayek

“If you’re paralyzing your face in your 20s and 30s, you’re not exercising the muscles that give it strength. My feeling is, laugh, cry, move your face.” – Salma Hayek

“Art and activism seem to go together naturally, the idea being that if you’re an entertainer, you can have a voice, and if you have a voice, you can make a difference. But if I were not an actress, I would still try to extend myself beyond my little micro-universe of my job, family, and personal joy.” – Salma Hayek

“If it wasn’t because of my high heels, I would still be in Coatzacoalcos with 10 children.” – Salma Hayek

“I think that a lot of women that know they’re going to be part of history somehow decide to have a character to be remembered by.” – Salma Hayek

“I believe eating well, and with people you love, is about feeding your body, heart, and soul – I used juicing to ensure I covered my nutritional bases every day and as a tool to restore inner balance if my body needed a break from too much indulgence.” – Salma Hayek

“When I feel stressed, I turn to food for comfort, but I don’t like to diet and I’m not good at it.” – Salma Hayek

“If you love food and you love red wine and they put you in France, you’re in a good place and you’re in a bad place at the same time. You have to weigh yourself every day, and you have to have an alarm number. When you get to that number, you have to start putting it in reverse.” – Salma Hayek

“For me, I have to say that I like to work a lot too, but I like not working better. The perfect scenario is when you just worked and you know something’s coming up, then you have four, five, six months off. But you know you’re going to have a job later.” – Salma Hayek

“How I would describe my characters is absolutely different from how I would describe myself.” – Salma Hayek

“I don’t see women and think of them as competition or with judgment. Women really move me. I feel connected to all kinds of women. I am angry because I think we’ve been mistreated throughout history in different countries, including America. I admire women.” – Salma Hayek

“I really do love Diana Ross; I grew up listening to her records. I grew up in a little town in Mexico, so while we got the music, we never got the experience of watching her.” – Salma Hayek

“Some men have a silly theory about beautiful women – that somewhere along the line, they’ll turn into a monster. That movie gave them a chance to watch it happen.” – Salma Hayek

“There is a subconscious way of taking violence as a way of expression, as a normality, and it has a lot of effects on the youth in the way they absorb education and what they hope to get out of life.” – Salma Hayek

“I’ve stolen a couple of hearts and they are in my private collection!” – Salma Hayek

“I don’t want to be size zero, and I’m glad I’m not.” – Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek’s Fashion Fail: Actress Wears Wedge Sneakers With Ill-Proportioned Dress

Salma Hayek is a #mommygoals celebrity who always dresses how she wants, regardless of her age. In October 2016, the then-50-year-old gave the 20 and 30-somethings a run for their money with her stylish outfit.

Salma was spotted sporting a trend that not even all 20-somethings are willing to try: wedge sneakers. The actress was spotted leaving the Stella McCartney show during Paris Fashion Week in France.

Although we give her props for rocking Stella McCartney’s “Elyse” wedge sneakers in silver, the rest of her outfit left us a bit confused.

The actress wore a white dress that cut her off at the weirdest proportions, making her torso look short, her hips wider, and her legs cut off.

Salma’s chain sunglasses failed to save her outfit since they looked like they belonged to an Iggy Azalea music video. We love Salma’s chain bag, though. If she had worn a crisp white jumpsuit, it could have made a world of difference.

Salma can undoubtedly pull off the “Elyse” wedge sneakers and still look good overall. The actress put on a look just a few days before the show that would have fared much better with the Fashion Week paparazzi.
