Salma Hayek is looking fabulous as age 50, dishing on her famous curves as she admits that finding excuses not to exercise has become easier as she gets older – and happier.
Opening up to The EDIT, “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” star confesses she’s never felt the need to conform to Hollywood’s beauty standards, especially since turning the big 5-0 last September and marrying French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault in 2009 after the birth of daughter Valentina in 2007.
“I will sometimes say, ‘I am 50 years old! Why do I have to look good? I already got my guy!’ But then, I don’t want to lose the guy, either,” she tells Net-A-Porter’s digital magazine, saying she comes up with “brilliant” excuses not to workout. She adds, “I love the word ‘curvy.’ [But] I’m not going to lie to you, I would like the curve to go in instead of out in some places.”
Hayek promises she has other goals she’d like to work on that don’t include exercise. “My biggest ambition now is to become an organized person. It might seem like nothing, but I’m telling you, I’ve been trying it for 50 years and I still can’t do it.”
In the candid interview, the “Frida” star opens up about the downsides of growing older.
“The worst part of the aging process has been my eyes. Not the wrinkles – the eyes themselves. I’m such a visual person and [now] I cannot read without depending on glasses,” she says. “It has been really, really sad. The eyes, for me, that’s worse than the menopause.”
Hayek is known for being outspoken and admits that sometimes she turns into a not-so-nice person when she’s unhappy.
“When I’m unhappy, sometimes I become a b***h,” she reveals, a necessary step on the path to getting over unhappiness. “Sometimes I drink a beer. It works. Sometimes I take a bath.Another thing that helps is music: I like all kinds. I also meditate. I breathe. But first, I become a b***h.”
