Salma Hayek Pinault: ‘We’ve got to fight for our confidence every day’

Hayek recounted in an interview with Glam Belezza Latina that after gaining weight during her pregnancy with daughter Valentina, she saw herself “completely disfigured in many different ways,” but “for a very good reason.”

The 47-year-old actress also said she doesn’t regret any moment the transformations undergone while she was pregnant and that after this experience she began to appreciate her body.

She admits that all the things that she didn’t enjoy before are “not that bad after all.”

“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,” she said.

“You have to be smart and successful and a good mother and beautiful and young and skinny forever,” the actress added.

Salma Hayek keeps fit with vegetable juices and follows a detoxification program.

“My favorite is the green one,” Hayek says.

“If I had to eat all those vegetables, it would be a drag. But in the juice, they taste really good.”

In an interview with InStyle, Salma confides that she prefers to dress in leather because her husband loves it.
