Salma Hayek is more than exotic, beautiful and rich...she embodies a fearless spirit and energy that is contagious and evident on screen. Hayek's accomplishments as an actress (Frida, Dusk till Dawn) are a lasting impression and as producer for Frida (biography of Frida Kahlo) and Ugly Betty are impressive. 
Hayek also won an Emmy for outstanding director for the showtime movie, The Maldonado Miracle.

Salma Hayek was born in September 1966 and she grew up in Veracruz, Mexico with her parents - a Mexican Lebanese wealthy father and an opera singer mother. Hayek's dream to become an actress was ignited when she saw Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory in her teens.
Salma Hayek is married to French billionaire, Fran├žois-Henri Pinault and is the mother of their daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault. Hayek is also an activist that involved in bringing awareness to violence against women. Hayek's accomplishments are endless and we are inspired by her energy.
