Salma Hayek said she felt "disfigured" when she was pregnant with her baby, which caused her to appreciate her pre-baby body more.

"I gained so much weight, I got an opportunity to see myself completely disfigured in many different ways - for a very good reason - and I don't regret it for a second that's when I started appreciating my body. The things that I used to criticize, they were not that bad after all," Hayek said.

Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

"We've got to fight for our confidence every day in modern life because we live in a society that is very harsh to women, you have to be smart and successful and a good mother and beautiful and young and skinny forever."

Hayek said her true happiness comes from her success and her relationships.
