Salma Hayek talks pregnancy and body image in the new issue of Glam Bellezza Latina.
The actress is known for her radiant look and gorgeous curves, but even she admits that Hollywood can be very critical of a woman’s body.
Glam Belleza Latina snippets of Hayek’s interview below!
On gaining 50 pounds during her pregnancy:
“I gained so much weight, I got the 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 bad after all.”
On the pressure women face in Hollywood:
“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.”
On staying young at 46:
“I believe that change keeps you young. I’m a late bloomer; I always have been. A lot of women think that this is the [age] when you start getting depressed. To that I say, ‘No, no, no, no, no!’ I’m having the best time of my life.”
