Salma Hayek talks about her beauty in the new InStyle!

Okay – that might not be a direct quote, but it’s basically what Salma Hayek’s saying. How else do you read this quote. “I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be. I could do a lot more—exercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course. I think if you are afraid of getting older, you age faster.” See what I mean?

Anyway, Salma lands the July cover of InStyle magazine. She DOES look gorgeous on the cover, doesn’t she? In the interview she talks quite a bit about herself – which I suppose most people do – but with her, she comes off as self-absorbed. A teensie bit.

Her style at the age of 47: “I actually wear a lot of leather on the red carpet. My husband loves when I wear it.”

Going strapless at 47: “When I turned 40, I started thinking, ‘This is the last year,’ whenever I’d wear a strapless dress. I always thought you can’t wear them after a certain age, but I’m still getting away with it.”

Dressing for her husband: “I’m not really a fashionista. I have an eye. I can pull it together, but a lot of the effort I make is for my husband, because I want him to be attracted to me.”

On beauty as a priority: “I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be. I could do a lot more—exercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course. I think if you are afraid of getting older, you age faster.” CONTINUE READING…

On her best advice to women: “You’ve got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what you’ve got. That goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else. You’ve got to have a sense of humor about who you are and give yourself a break. You’ve got to be kind to yourself. And it’s not easy, you know?”

I can appreciate her dressing for her husband, and wearing what he likes her to wear. I suppose. I just got a bad feeling when I read her quote on how she could be so much more beautiful if she tried. Who knows, maybe I’m just being moody. It’s my kids last day of school today. For most mothers this is a joyous day (according to Facebook) to ME this means I’m stuck at home with these kids for the summer – and how the heck am I supposed to get any work done? :)
