SALMA HAYEK
She Loves Being A Mom!

If there’s one role that Salma Hayek loves the most in her life, it’s her role as a mom. The actress recently opened up about her new life as a homemaker, wife and mother in a new interview with the U.K.’s Guardian Newspaper and how she wouldn’t trade it in for anything else in the world. Here are some highlights of what she says:

Her childhood: “I was privileged to grow up in Coatzacoalcos, Mexico with my parents [Diana, an opera singer, and Sami, an oil company executive] and my younger brother, Sami. It was a close community, we lived near the ocean and we would be outside all the time with the neighbours’ kids, running free, playingfootball on the streets and at the beach. What better place could there be for a child?”

Her mom was a philanthropist: “My mother was devoted to helping people – with my father’s money! – who had great voices but didn’t have the financialmeans to study music. He and my mum gave away dozens of music scholarships, and my mum opened a school in town, introduced opera to children and created fantastic programmes. With my father’s help she brought in teachers from Mexico City. They would train anybody who had a good voice, and several of her students are now working as professional singers.”

On women’s rights: “I have always been inspired by my parents to carry on helping people – mainly in fighting for justice for women around the world, which is the focus of Chime for Change [a global campaign to raise funds and awareness for girls and women’s empowerment]. We are concerned about all women’s issues relating to justice, education and health. If you look at any other group of people suffering injustice, women are always in the worst situation within that group. And the problem is growing. For example, human trafficking in America is a booming business. There is still so much domestic violence and a general lack of laws toprotect women. We have to make sure women around the world are respected and valued.”

She likes being a mom: “I like being a mother. For some people it’s so much work that it can be a burden. But it’s not for me, maybe because I had my daughter, Valentina, later on in life, at 41. I have never been apart from Valentina for more than a week – even when my husband, François-Henri Pinault, and I went on our honeymoon, we were only without her for one week.”

She loves being a wife & homemaker: “I love being a wife and homemaker – because it’s my choice. My friends who don’t have children say it’s impossible to get together with me because I don’t want to talk about anything else except motherhood. But being a mother is more exhausting than working, and sometimes I push myself too hard and burn myself out. I can appreciate how exhausting it must be for women who have to do everything themselves all the time. I don’t have to work now, but I have to work because it’s not about money, it’s about passion. It is part of my personal evolution.”

Salma Hayek Would Give Up Her Career For Her Daughter

According to Salma Hayek, family comes first before career so that’s why she says that if needed she would give up her Hollywood job to stay home with her 4-year-old daughter, Valentina. The actress explains:

“It’s working out really well. [Valentina] is really smart and she’s really young. If later on it gets in the way of her development, I’ll just stop working.”

“For right now, it works. I work mostly in the summers. I usually work in the Sandler family or with Kevin James,” Hayek, who is currently shooting the Grown Ups sequel, explains. “I’m really good friends with the wives and the kids are the same age. It works out for me.”
