Salma Hayek Quotes:

After doing a juice cleanse, I’m motivated to eat healthier and not emotionally. Cleansing is like my meditation. It makes me stop, focus and think about what I’m putting into my body. I’m making a commitment to my health and hitting the reset button.

Salma Hayek

Art and activism seem to go together naturally, the idea being that if you’re an entertainer, you can have a voice, and if you have a voice, you can make a difference. But if I were not an actress, I would still try to extend myself beyond my little micro-universe of my job, family and personal joy.

Salma Hayek

Before I had my child, animals were my life. I slept with four dogs in my bed.

Salma Hayek

Being a mother is more exhausting than working, and sometimes I push myself too hard and burn myself out. I can appreciate how exhausting it must be for women who have to do everything themselves all the time.

How I would describe my characters is absolutely different from how I would describe myself.

Salma Hayek

I am so, so lucky. I am the luckiest girl in the world, really. And still with access to everything I could possibly want I still say ‘Oh dear, what am I going to wear today?’ There’s no ending to that question!

Salma Hayek

I believe eating well, and with people you love, is about feeding your body, heart, and soul – I used juicing to ensure I covered my nutritional bases every day, and as a tool to restore inner balance if my body needed a break from too much indulgence.

Salma Hayek

I do have thighs and a butt. I have cellulite.

Salma Hayek

I don’t believe in the so-called Latino explosion when it comes to movies. Jennifer Lopez doesn’t have an accent. She grew up in New York speaking English, not Spanish. Her success is very important because she represents a different culture, but it doesn’t help me.

Salma Hayek

I don’t ever want to have to depend on anyone completely.

Salma Hayek

I don’t see women and think of them as competition or with judgment. Women really move me. I feel connected to all kinds of women. I am angry because I think we’ve been mistreated throughout history in different countries, including America. I admire women.

Salma Hayek

I know the only reason that I haven’t gotten many good parts is because I am Latin – and they tell it to my face a lot of times.

Salma Hayek

I love being a wife and homemaker – because it’s my choice. My husband doesn’t expect me to do it. I don’t mind doing things for him because he does so much for me; we both feel that way so there is no power struggle.

Salma Hayek

I love to cook for my husband and daughter. I enjoy going to the market for fresh vegetables.

Salma Hayek

I love to cook when I have the time. I don’t cook French or Mexican food with exact recipes. I just go to the supermarket and buy things that look good, and I mix it all together and invent something. Ninety-five percent of the time, I’m lucky. Sometimes not so lucky, and I say, ‘Let’s go out to dinner.’

Salma Hayek

I proved to myself that if I believe in something and set my mind to it I could actually accomplish it.

Salma Hayek

I want my little girl to tell me who she is so I can encourage her and not impose my desires for her on her life. I want her to dream big and to know that if she is willing to earn it, she can have anything – and become anything.

Salma Hayek

I was privileged to grow up in Mexico at a time when you could play in the streets. We lived not too far from the ocean, and we would be outside all the time with the neighbours’ kids, running free. What better place could there be for a child?

Salma Hayek

I will not have Botox. You know why? Because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetable, I eat everything. If you exercise and you don’t eat enough, it takes its toll on the skin.

Salma Hayek

I work hard, I make my own living and I love it. I like having financial independence.

If it wasn’t because of my high heels, I would still be in Coatzacoalcos with 10 children.

Salma Hayek

If I’ve been indulging in rich foods, a cleanse is a wonderful way to hit the reset button.

Salma Hayek

If you love food and you love red wine and they put you in France, you’re in a good place and you’re in a bad place at the same time. You have to weigh yourself every day, and you have to have an alarm number. When you get to that number, you have to start putting it in reverse.

Salma Hayek

If you’re feeling blue, lock yourself in a room, stand in front of a mirror, and dance – and laugh at yourself and be sexy. Dance the silliest and ugliest you’ve ever danced. Make fun of yourself and try to recover your sense of humor.

Salma Hayek

I’ll tell you, there is nothing better in life than being a late bloomer. I believe that success can happen at any time and at any age.

Salma Hayek

I’ve stolen a couple of hearts and they are in my private collection!

Salma Hayek

Life is tough; and if you have the ability to laugh at it, you have the ability to enjoy it.

Salma Hayek

My driving abilities from Mexico have helped me get through Hollywood.

Salma Hayek

My grandmother was energetic and fearless – a talented poet and songwriter.

Salma Hayek

My mother was devoted to helping people – with my father’s money! – who had great voices but didn’t have the financial means to study music. He and my mum gave away dozens of music scholarships, and my mum opened a school in town, introduced opera to children and created fantastic programmes.

Salma Hayek

No woman has to be a victim of physical abuse. Women have to feel like they are not alone.

Salma Hayek

People always underestimate me. But if you stick around long enough, act out of conviction, and try to be honorable in everything you do, good things will come to you.

Salma Hayek

Producing is hell, writing is frustrating, acting is really satisfying, directing is heaven.

Salma Hayek

Some men have a silly theory about beautiful women – that somewhere along the line they’ll turn into a monster. That movie gave them a chance to watch it happen.

Salma Hayek

The truth is, I just don’t have the drive to be the prettiest and the thinnest. I can be happy for other people for their beauty.

Salma Hayek

They offered me that film before I did Frida and I said, no, I’m not capable of directing. Then after seeing Julie direct, I was inspired by it. She motivated me to do it, because we don’t have role models as woman for directors.

Salma Hayek

What once was an expression of who I was – acting – also became my hiding place.

Salma Hayek

When I started acting, I was told over and over again, ‘You’re no good.’ But I said to myself, ‘You’ve got to keep it up.’

Salma Hayek

You can be a thousand different women. It’s your choice which one you want to be. It’s about freedom and sovereignty. You celebrate who you are. You say, ‘This is my kingdom.’
