The 54- year-old movie star says it’s ‘invigorating’ that she is being approached more often now for movie roles than when she was in her 20s
Selma Hayek started her career trying to get the attention of filmmakers and convince them to cast her in their movies, but after 32 years in the industry, she is delighted they are finally approaching her for roles.
The 54- year-old movie star says it’s ‘invigorating’ that she is being approached more often now for movie roles than when she was in her 20s.
“It really invigorated me that they are finding me. I always found them. But they didn’t want me. And that now they’re coming to me, that’s what’s been really invigorating.”
Hayek rose to fame in the Mexican telenovela Teresa before moving to Los Angeles to pursue a big screen career.
However, when the Hollywood actress first started out in 1988 she had no idea how things would end up.
The cover girl explained: ‘The things that have happened in my life are completely unimaginable. Even in my greatest ideas of my most extraordinary destiny, I never imagined how I feel right now.
“At some point in your life you just settle for doing the right thing and the best you can, instead of think about what you want and what you can didn’t get get or what you’re not getting or how someone’s getting it and you’re not getting it.”
The wife of billionaire François-Henri Pinault has proved with several bikini shots this year that she looks as good as ever.

“Guess who’s turning 54 tomorrow? By the way, this is not a Throwback Thursday! Thank you Marjo for turning into a photographer during the vacation!” said the Wild West actress in her caption as she noted she is a Virgo.
Last month the Like A Boss star was seen in a skimpy two piece in black as she sipped coffee al fresco by a tiled wall in Greece.
Salma styled her brunette locks into a sweptback relaxed bun and went makeup-free as she displayed her radiant complexion.
Salma and her French businessman husband have been married since 2009, after tying the knot in a lavish Paris ceremony on Valentine’s Day. Their nuptials are said to have cost an eye-watering $3.5 million.
Last year, it was reported that François-Henri is worth an estimated $33.2billion.
The Oscar-nominated actress remains tight-lipped about their relationship, but last year she did address trolls who apparently criticized the union.
“A lot of people are very shocked that I married who I married,” she said in an interview with Town & Country.
“And some people are even intimidated now by me. But it’s another way of showing racism. They can’t believe this Mexican ended up in the life that she has, and they’re uncomfortable around me.”
