Salma Hayek Doesn’t Believe In Having Sex Every Day


This is gonna upset some people!

I like Salma Hayek well enough, and I think her interviews are at least somewhat interesting and politically progressive- she’s all over immigration, women’s rights and women in Hollywood, even though her acting work hasn’t been a thing in a while. Now, though, Salma is covering the new issue of Red and she talks a lot about her marriage to Francois-Henri Pinault, a billionare. So you know, while she talks about the “challenges” of juggling a career, motherhood and her wifely-ness, it’s like, okay, pour enough money into things and they aren’t as stressful. Here are some highlights from Red:

Sex with her husband: “Sex is not the key to a happy marriage, but it’s a side effect. Although not every day! If it’s every day then it loses its charm. It’s so important to maintain your chemistry. You have to continue to laugh, continue to explore, continue to have fun with each other, continue to have romance.”

Her biggest accomplishment: “A good marriage, full of love, is my biggest accomplishment. Home is where my husband is. He is home. Everything outside of the family nucleus is an adventure that you’re living together.”

Feeling sexy even when you’re insecure: “Even though I struggle every moment with my own judgment of my body, I’m in touch with myself. I try to be really aware of every muscle. It is sexy. Sexuality, what other people see in you, is enjoying your body. Involve your senses in your life, and you will become sexy. Dance, and not to look good. If you dance terribly, still dance. It might in the moment not look sexy, but this interaction with life makes you sexy. And even if you’re on a diet, enjoy your food—please! It’s a very Latin point of view.”

Her miracle child: “I had a child late in life…I’ve had that yearning, that longing, and that pain…I always wanted to have a lot of children, and I was not able to. My body, as a miracle, had one. The huge blessing I’ve had is that my husband has three other children. So I have four. And they are all so different.”

Being engaged with 8-year-old Valentina: “I try to be with Valentina as much as possible, even when I’m working. She was with me on the cover shoot and she felt like a participant—she wasn’t just sitting there on the iPad. This is so important. You have to drag children into participating in life…It takes a lot of work and mummies are very tired because most of us work and life is exhausting, especially if you are an older mom like me, but you have to make the effort. And if you have a smart child, it’s harder. Now it’s so easy to just entertain them (with a screen), and you don’t have to go through the complaining for an hour about dragging them places. Drag them, and make them a part of your life. It’s about the human connection, and the things they can learn from participating in life. Otherwise, isolation starts to happen.”

I love how she talks about the struggles of being an “older mom.” That feels really real to me. In general, it’s interesting to get an intimate view into her marriage and what she finds important…family and her very, very rich husband.

Salma Hayek Got A Ticket On The “No Makeup Selfie” Train

Screen Shot 2015-12-16 at 1.47.50 PM

You should look HAPPY, Salma Hayek!

The actress posed today for a no-makeup selfie and even though she looks like she just got off the boat at Ellis Island with a barrel full of dried fruit, hopes and dreams she still is looking GOOD- with and without makeup. Salma captioned the photo “Wet hair, no make up, no filter, no retouch, but very good light,” on her Instagram.

Hey, sometimes a little good light is all you need.

What do you think of Salma’s “No makeup” selfie?

Salma Hayek And Her Kid Seem Fun

Salma Hayek & Daughter Departing On A Flight At LAX

Here’s Salma Hayek and her adorbs daughter Valentina Pinault departing on a flight at LAX yesterday and I gotta say, these two look like they’d be fun travel buddies.

Along with taking a flight, Salma celebrated her 49th birthday yesterday and was dressed in a fun print, hat and glasses while lil Valentina opted for a more casual look. Where the two were going? Hard to say. But I bet that they have a lot of fun goofing around together up in business class!

Salma Hayek Blasts Donald Trump For Immigration Comments

Celebrities Stop By 'The Wendy Williams Show'

Salma Hayek wasn’t surprised when she heard Donald Trump slam Mexican immigrants, but she’s speaking out anyway, because Donald Trump sucks and any word against him, in my opinion, is a GOOD word:

“I’m aware that he would say anything to attract attention and create the publicity around him,” the Mexico-born actress told me while promoting her new animated film Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet (more on that in a second). “If something generates publicity, I would never be surprised about anything he does.”

Hayek refuses to “say his name” because she doesn’t want to give the presidential hopeful any “extra publicity.”

“I’d be surprised if he did something courageous and meaningful that nobody found out about,” she said. “This was not courageous and meaningful.”

(Via E! News)

However, she does appreciate that his ignorant words bring attention to issues around race and discrimination.  “At least be brought a light to a real problem,” Hayek said.

I agree wholeheartedly with everything except the thing about “not saying his name.” Everybody knows who you’re talking about, Salma!
