Salma Hayek Interview GROWN UPS
The catch? Valentina Paloma is completely clueless about her healthy habits. I camouflage them. They love pasta [so] I put [them] in tomato sauce, the Puss In Boots star, 45, reveals during a Friday appearance on the Rachael Ray Show . You know what you can hide really well? Aubergine [eggplant], roast carrots, roast bell peppers [and] you can put a little bit of greens if you put enough of the other stuff. However, Hayek has learned to cover her tricky tracks well because if Valentina were to find out, all bets would be off, the actress laughs. Theres got to be no clue that you lied because then shell find it, like, Aha! she says. You have to really puree [the vegetables]. Its the way to do it. The hands-on mothers tips dont end in the kitchen; Hayek, who globetrots with her family, including husband Francois-Henri Pinault, understands children arent always the best travel companions. Shes on the plane a lot and in the car a lot and sometimes they get cranky. Really, you know what that is? Theyre getting carsick, Hayek explains. I have these bracelets that are for motion sickness that I used while I was pregnant because I was carsick for 9 months nonstop!
My husband loves when I wear it, she told the magazine. The mother of 5-year-old Valentina likes to choose strapless looks as well. When I turned 40, I started thinking, This is the last year, whenever Id wear a strapless dress, she said. I always thought you cant wear them after a certain age, but Im still getting away with it. See Stars Sexy Magazine Shoots Although Hayek has just come out with a new skin-care line, she doesnt place as high a priority on beauty as some might think. I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be, she said. I could do a lot more: exercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I dont think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. Its a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course, she added. No surprise then that Hayek does not fear aging. I think if you are afraid of getting older, you age faster, she said. Her advice for women: Youve got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what youve got. That goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else. Youve got to have a sense of humor about who you are and give yourself a break.

Is it true that your daughter, Valentina, had something to do with that? Salma: At the beginning of the film, she was very little. My chair said Salma Hayek. She said, What does it say there? I said, Salma Hayek, and she said, Where is Pinault?, because her last name is Pinault. In France, my husband is much more famous than me, so everybody calls me Madame Pinault, and shes much more used to that. I realized that she felt left out. And, I also have two children that I inherited from his previous marriage. I like it. It just brings the family together. How did Valentina react when you told her you were going to use Pinault? Salma: She thinks its the least I could do, trust me. How are you balancing motherhood and work? Did you bring her to the set? Salma: We all brought children to the set. Adam makes it the dream environment to bring children.
