How do I put this politely? Salma Hayek’s husband and baby daddy, Francois-Henri Pinault, sounds like a huge douchebag. Pinault is currently embroiled in a child support battle with ex Linda Evangelista, with whom he has a five-year-old son, Augie, and the French billionaire is not looking so good. Evangelista is demanding $46,000 — a month! — in child support, which is obviously a lot, but the former supermodel says it’s less than what Pinault lavishes on his daughter with Hayek, Valentina, age 4. Pinault claims that Evangelista is really demanding “mom support.” Keep reading »
Salma Hayek may have recently admitted that she was acne-ridden and depressed for much of her 20s, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at her these days. The woman is the very definition of a classic Hollywood glamour girl and she happens to be very dedicated to doing charity and good works, too. She and her multi-billionaire husband, Henri Francois Pinault, attend lots of fashion shows together (it’s very cute!) and seem to provide a very loving home for their daughter Valentina. All in all, Salma turned out pretty damn awesome, despite — or maybe because of — her early-20s trouble. And we love her voluptuous curves and the way she really fills out a fancy gown. After the jump, 1o of our all-time favorite Salma styles.
I think we would all agree that Salma Hayek is one of the most beautiful women alive. But according to her interview in the latest issue of Lucky, she wasn’t always a swan. I know, how is that even possible? She claims that when she was a young, struggling actress in LA she battled with bad acne and extra weight. “You want to talk about bad skin? I had acne. And this acne was so bad, it sent me into a severe, severe depression. Like I couldn’t leave the house. I’d wake up in the morning and lie there and touch my face before I got up, just to prepare myself to look in the mirror! … The next stage with that sort of depression is food: too little, or too much … I was fat and broken out, I couldn’t leave the house and I couldn’t pay the rent!” I’m sure she speaks the truth, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at her.

“I was the youngest in class and all these girls were starting to get [breasts] and I wasn’t getting anything. I was really scared! I was getting teased a lot because everyone was older and I was the skinny tomboy. I went to a church that had a saint that was supposed to do a lot of miracles. I put my hands in the holy water and went: ‘Please, Jesus, give me some boobs!’”

Q: What do you do when someone bites it right before your eyes? A: Laugh. Obviously. I fully condone this behavior and I have every right to considering that I am usually the one tripping and falling. I am a proud klutz and I love it when people support my accidents with hearty laughter. It makes the aftermath less embarrassing.
For example, Antonio Banderas is totally not handling Salma Hayek’s fall correctly. If he’s not going to help her, he should at least have a giggle! Instead he’s looking away. How he manages, I don’t know — the look on her face is just so expressive! It’s okay, I had a hearty laugh on his behalf (once I found out that Salma was fine, of course). Keep clicking for some more celebs biting it. It’s OK to laugh. I promise.
If sexuality is fluid, then my tide is swelling for Salma Hayek. Seriously, I could just listen to her speak for hours, my head nestled in her pillow-y bosom. The actress was on “Late Night With David Letterman” last night and really it’s kind of irrelevant what she talked about — hurting her ankle? her earrings? her, blech, husband? — because I was hypnotized simply by the cadence of her voice. She is dreamy.
It’s a not so mini day for television miniseries news. First, we read that the History Channel will not be airing the eight-part series “The Kennedys,” starring Katie Holmes as Jackie O, that I was all excited for. Why? Well, apparently, it turned out to be historically questionable. “While the film is produced and acted with the highest quality, after viewing the final product in its totality, we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand,” a network spokesperson says. Does that mean we will never get a chance to see Katie in a pillbox hat?
A few clicks of the remote control away, Salma Hayek is busy developing an eight-part miniseries for ABC based on the book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. But I’m a little concerned about it. Keep reading »
Salma Hayek-Pinault and her adorable daughter, Valentina, were photographed taking a stroll on a beach in St. Barts. But what I found interesting is that 3-year-old Valentina still sucks on a pacifier. Now, I have never read a parenting book and don’t have any children, but I thought that most parents would try to wean their little one off the pacifier by the age of 3. If Valentina was old enough to understand that her last name was different from her mother’s, isn’t she too old for a pacifier? Shouldn’t parents try to teach their children to calm themselves without the use of a device by that age? So what say you, Frisky parents? When should a child give up the pacifier? Keep reading »
Salma Hayek looks kind of like an alien on the cover of V Spain. Which is fitting, because inside the magazine, she reveals that she was once living in the United States as an illegal alien. (Yeah, I don’t love that phrase, either. Sorry I had to use it to make that intro work.) “I was an illegal immigrant in the United States,” says Salma. “It was for a small period of time, but I still did it.” She doesn’t specify when exactly. It could be when she was a high school student at the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Louisiana. (She headed back to Mexico for college.) Or during her early days in Hollywood. Keep reading »
