Salma Hayek is a Mexican and American film actress, producer, and former model. She is an actress, director and producer of Mexican and Lebanese descent who was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in ‘Frida.
Salma Hayek was born in Mexico in 1966, Salma Hayek dropped out of school to become an actress. She got her big break in Hollywood with a role in Robert Rodriguez’s Desperado, eventually ascending to the pinnacle of the industry with her Academy Award-nominated turn in Frida. Hayek has also been involved in TV work, notably serving as executive producer of the hit series Ugly Betty.
In 1991, the ambitious Hayek moved to Los Angeles, California, determined to improve her English and become a Hollywood actress. After small gigs, she landed a role opposite Antonio Banderas in 1995’s Desperado. The success of the film garnered her work in relatively lackluster movies, including the teen thriller The Faculty (1998), 1999’s Wild Wild West and 1997’s Fools Rush In. Subsequently, Hayek became engaged with smaller, independent pictures and began her own production company, Ventanarosa.
Hayek’s increasingly intellectual and passionate approach to filmmaking culminated in her dream role in 2002’s Frida, which she both produced and starred in. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards, including a best actress nomination for Hayek.
Hayek proved that she could hold her own as a voice actor as well after appearing in Puss in Boots (2011)—a spin-off of the popular Shrekfranchise—alongside Antonio Banderas, who voiced the lead role. She also reprised her role as Adam Sandler’s wife in Grown Ups 2 (2013).
After starring in the violent action flick Everly (2015), Hayek pivoted to more serious material with the widespread release of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet later that year. The actress produced and provided voiceover work for the movie, an animated retelling of Gibran’s collection of spiritual essays.
Hayek began dating French entrepreneur Henri Pinault in 2006, and the couple became engaged the following year. She gave birth to a daughter in September 2007, in Los Angeles, California. The couple married on Valentine’s Day 2009 in Paris, France.
