Quotable: Why Salma Hayek Added Pinault To Her Name

“It was Valentina’s request. I didn’t think about it until she brought it up. We were shooting a film, and she saw my chair with my name on it. She says, ‘What does it say there?’ And I said, ‘Salma Hayek.’ And she said, ‘What about Pinault? Why not Pinault?’ Because people here (in France) say ‘Madame Pinault.’ I said to myself, ‘This is who I am now. I’m starting a whole new life. I’ve never been happier. Why shouldn’t I share it with the people who have been supporting me my whole career, who have been with me since the beginning?’”

Salma Hayek-Pinault explains why she adopted her husband Francois-Henri Pinault’s last name after being married for about a year. Their daughter, Valentina, is extremely perceptive. [Celebitchy]
