Salma Hayek celebrated her birthday this week and fans were utterly shocked to discover her age…
And it’s all over some stunning birthday photos that completely defy her real age.
Raised in Mexico, Salma started her career as an actress from the age of twelve when she attended the Academy of the Sacred Heart in Grand Coteau, Louisiana.
Because the majority of working-class families in Mexico wouldn’t have had the resources to fund their child in an American acting school.
She landed the title role in Teresa (1989), a successful Mexican telenovela that rocketed her to stardom in Mexico.
She went on to study acting under Stella Adler – but as a woman with limited English and a diagnosis of dyslexia, this proved to be extremely challenging.
After a couple of minor roles, the actress landed a small but major role in the 1996 cult classic From Dusk Till Dawn alongside George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino.
Her first star billing came the following year when she landed a big role in Fool’s Rush In alongside Matthew Perry.
These roles gave Salma a lot of exposure in Hollywood and she went on to work in movies such as Breaking Up (1997), Dogma, and Wild Wild West (1999).
She also starred in the movie, which was called Frida, and it was met with a lot of critical acclaim.
In more recent times, Salma played the wife of Adam Sandler’s character in Grown Ups…
And she co-starred with Antonio Banderas in the Shrek spin-off film Puss in Boots.
So there’s no denying that Salma Hayek is a Hollywood icon…
And she most certainly looks like one!
But also for her naturally beautiful looks.
And they share a daughter together who was born in 2007.
The stunning actress celebrated her birthday!
And when she disclosed how old she’d be turning, fans simply couldn’t believe their eyes!
Along with the caption, “Guess who’s turning fifty-four tomorrow? By the way, this is not a Throwback Thursday! Thank you Marjo for turning into a photographer during the vacation!”
Nevertheless, happy birthday Salma!
