Photo: Salma Hayek Covers Harper's Bazaar UK Novermber Issue - "I Must be the Luckiest Girl in the World"
Mexican beauty Salma Hayek graces the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, but also opened up about her body, her career, and why she doesn’t need Botox.
In the featured interview, the 46-year-old actress/model shared why she is so grateful to still be relevant in Hollywood.
“The worst thing you can be in Hollywood is a woman and over 40,” Hayek tells Bazaar UK. “On top of that, I have an accent, am dyslexic, short and chubby. You name it I have it, but I am here. I must be the luckiest girl in the world to be working.”
Though no one of sound mind would dare call Hayek fat, she is well aware that she does not look like the typical Hollywood starlet.
“I am on the limit of chubbiness because I love my food and my wine. It’s not the best for fashion, but it’s good for my mood.”
She adds that she’s happy because she eats and says this is why she’ll never need Botox.
“I don’t need to do it because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetables, I eat everything,” she said. She also added that all that food has been good for her skin. “If you don’t eat carbs, you slow your metabolism down. And you know what? You look miserable.”
Possibly the best quote from the interview comes from a woman who seems to have really accepted not only her role in Hollywood, but also herself.
“The truth is I just don’t have the drive to be the prettiest and the thinnest. I can be happy for other people for their beauty. Learn to be happy for others and you can never run out of happiness.”
Though she may embrace her curvy self, it seems someone does not. Judging by the cover photo, could it be this beauty is another victim of a dreaded Photoshop-happy magazine?
