Salma Hayek: "I Was Born to be a Wife and a Mother"

| by I Need My Fix

Wow who would have thunk that Salma Hayek thinks of herself born to be a wife and mother? Not that there's anything wrong with that at all, but she's known for being a sexy hot actress and business person married to a billionaire (she's a millionaire in her own right).

She covers Latina magazine for November and talked about her husband, motherhood and a skin-care line she is developing so that we can all have beautiful skin like hers (I would totally buy the product):

On waiting patiently to become a mother & wife“To be your own woman, you have to question who you really are and what it is you really want – and you have to have a level of acceptance of what you can do. The things I expected of myself when I was 20 did not happen, or did not happen the way I imagined they would, and it’s okay.  Let’s just take this one day at a time and do the best that I can and be grateful for the things I do have.”

On her husband François-Henri Pinault: “I found a man better than any man I could ever in my life imagine existed. He found me, actually. I wasn’t even looking.”

On having divine skin“When I was 16, I looked 19.  When I was 19, I looked 25. But I got stuck on 25 – thank God! – until I was 35. So that was good.  But it’s also important to take care of your skin because if you’re not careful, one day you’ll wake up and a spider will have taken over your face and you’ll be full of lines.”

On cosmetic surgery: “I have no Botox.  The thought of a needle coming to my forehead, it really gives me the heebie-jeebies.  So I’d rather put on my creams.  It’s fun, it smells good, and it’s relaxing.  Am I opposed to doing it later?  I don’t know.  I want to see how far I can go.”

On launching her new beauty line“At the time I wanted to do the beauty line I didn’t know how, but I never stopped trying to learn. It’s not that I said, ‘I’ve gotta do this no matter what.’ It was like, ‘I know how to act.  I don’t know how to do this other thing, but I think I could.’  So I studied, I paid attention, I asked a lot of questions, I investigated each product.  And then, in time, it came.”

On the busiest year of her career: “I’m 45, so it’s a miracle I’m working in the first place – especially because I’m not even here [stateside] chasing it.  Nowadays I only work with friends or somebody I admire, or on something that is really special.  Somehow, just by doing that, it’s the year that I worked the most in my life!”

On what’s next: “I’m in a very comfortable position because, [even] if I never worked again and am just a housewife and a mother, I’m happy.  I really am.  I was born to be a wife and a mother.”
