Actress Salma Hayek did a cover shoot for Allure magazine recently, and for it she talks about how much luckier she is than the rest of us, what with having great skin and a thriving film career at 48 years old. Oh and she also looks hot as f*ck in middle age to be able to pose topless.
In the gorgeous black and white pic published in the mag, the 48-year-old actress clutches her bosom with her hands.
“I thought my hands were bigger,” Hayek told me while promoting her new animated movie Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet. “They’re big, but not big enough to cover my breasts. They did cover enough but in my head they were covering more. It’s important to be free … and at my age it’s exciting to still be able to take a photograph like that,” she said.
Sounds chill, Salma. And what did you want to say about your husband?
“I wish I knew [when I was younger] that I was going to fall crazy in love with the perfect man. I was so worried, and I dated some people I shouldn’t have dated. I could say to myself, ‘Hey, chill out. You’re going to get a great husband that’s going to adore you.’ I would have saved myself a lot of personal drama.”
Are you crying from jealousy yet? Just hold out until you’re in your 40s too, where you’ll be sure to find the man of your dreams and get the chance to pose naked for national magazines and — oh wait.
