The latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar brings another interview with the always stunning and “chubby” Salma Hayek, who is again lashing out at Hollywood for obsessing with weight and age, particularly where women are concerned.
As she sees it, if you’re a woman and you’re older than 40 and actually happen to look unlike a teen boy in Hollywood, you’re doomed.
“On top of that, I have an accent, am dyslexic, short and chubby,” she says, adding to what some have described as 100 percent imaginary flaws.
“I am on the limit of chubbiness because I love my food and my wine. It’s not the best for fashion, but it’s good for my mood. I am happy because I eat,” Salma says.
“I am 46; I will not have Botox. You know why [I don’t need to do it]? Because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetables, I eat everything. If you exercise too much and you don’t eat enough, it takes its toll on the skin. Everything starts ageing. If you don’t eat carbs, you slow your metabolism down. And you know what? You look miserable,” she goes on to say.
She admires Madonna for her discipline and her incredibly fit body, and she thinks the singer is right to flaunt it whenever she gets the chance because she’s worked hard for it.
Such a lifestyle is just not for her, though.
“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. Learn to be happy for others and you can never run out of happiness,” Salma explains.
“In recent years, we have had to fight against our genetic nature to look like little boys, to be socially accepted as beautiful. It used to be that a young girl couldn’t wait to grow up and take the shape of a woman. Now our goal is regression, to look younger and like a child. There has not been enough diversity of boy shape in fashion,” she adds on a final note.
