Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek (Salma Hayek Jimenez)

General appearance:

– 5′ 2″ (157 cm) height, brown – dark eyes and black hair.

Being born on 09/02, Salma is a virgo.

Salma dated Richard Crenna Jr. and amongst other famous relationships was John Travolta.

Actress, director, producer. Born on September 2, 1966 in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico. Raised in a well-to-do Catholic home, Hayek is the daughter of a Spanish mother and Lebanese father.

She attended a convent school in Louisiana at the age of 12 and lived with her aunt in Houston, Texas, during her teens. After a brief stint at a university in Mexico City, she dropped out to pursue a career in acting, eventually becoming a soap star in her native Mexico.

In 1991, the ambitious Hayek moved to Los Angeles, determined to improve her English and become a Hollywood actress.

After small gigs, she landed a role opposite Antonio Banderas in 1995’s Desperado. The success of the film garnered her work in relatively lackluster movies, including the teen thriller The Faculty, 1999’s Wild Wild West and 1997’s Fools Rush In. Subsequently, Hayek became engaged with smaller, independent pictures and started her own production company, Ventanarosa.

Hayek’s increasingly intellectual and passionate approach to filmmaking culminated in her dream role in 2002’s Frida, in which she both produced and starred. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards, including a Best Actress nomination for Hayek, who was the first Latin actress to be nominated in the category.
