Salma Hayek Hates Her Body

Monday, October 26, 2009

Salma HayekSHE might be considered one of Hollywood’s sexiest stars, but Salma Hayek hates her body.

The actress — who is married to French billionaire François-Henri Pinault — has revealed how she won a “Best Body Award” — but was too embarrassed to accept it.

“I won a ‘Best Body Award’ from Fitness Magazine and I was too embarrassed to accept it,” Salma said. “I actually don’t have a good body, but if everybody thinks so, I guess it means I’m a good actress.

“I have acted the part of the girl who has a very good body. If you know how to dress, there’s some tricks you can pull.”

Salma, 43, also revealed what she’d be doing if she didn’t make a success of her acting career.

“Growing up, I thought about wanting to be a contortionist or maybe a trapeze artist,” she said. “I would have loved to do something gymnastic. I had another fantasy. Have you ever heard of the group ‘Up With People?’ They’re not a circus troupe, but they came to our city in Mexico when I was a kid doing motivational performances and singing songs about the power we have to change things.

“I had a dream of going away with them — just going from town to town and being in their show to help promote world peace. That was my real secret fantasy.”

Hayek — who got wed earlier this yearrecently revealed that she’s still struggling to adjust to married life, especially her husband’s traditions.

“Eating oysters for Christmas is a weird one I didn’t know about,” she said. “I had no idea that would be happening. I’m used to turkey. It takes some getting used to.”
