Salma Hayek is a natural beauty, and she’s not afraid to show it. The 53-year-old actress is no stranger to a makeup-free selfie.
In fact, she regularly shares very natural photos with her 12 million Instagram followers. She’s all about embracing the aging process, which is a refreshing mentality we don’t see enough of.
In Salma’s three decades in Hollywood, she’s always been a knockout. Her dedication to keeping things natural in her 50s just makes us love her even more. Not only is she flawless, but she’s brilliant as well. Salma isn’t just an actress. She’s also a businesswoman, a producer, and a director, giving life to projects that speak to the values she holds dear.
Salma’s most recent bikini picture came while the actress was enjoying a vacation. While the picture also included a little social media gaffe, we’ll let it slide coming from one of the most iconic actresses in recent history.
Salma Hayek very well may be one of the most underrated queens of Instagram. The 53-year-old actress shows off her awesome sense of humor and stunning looks on the social network, where she’s amassed over 12 million followers.
Salma’s Instagram is an awesome mix of work and play. While she promotes the projects that she produces, directs, and stars in, she also lets fans in on her time lounging around and enjoying some peace and quiet.
She’s also one of a number of celebrities who cater to a multilingual audience. All of her posts’ captions are written first in English, then again in Spanish, which the Mexican-American actress is fluent in.
Recently, Salma took some pictures while on a beach vacation, but she got a little confused when it came time to share them on social media. She captioned this photo, “I like #turtles on the beach 🐢 Me gustan las tortugas en la playa”.
While the all-natural bikini picture was absolutely stunning, fans quickly noticed that there were no turtles in sight. Salma realized the goof too and posted the correct photo the next day. “Oops… I posted the right caption but the wrong picture without the #turtle #ISuckAtSocialMedia 🐢,” she wrote.
She also posted a photo of herself getting in touch with the woodsy side of nature. Again, the photo featured a turtle friend. “I like #turtles in the woods 🐢 Me gustan las tortugas en el bosque,” she captioned the shot.
Salma has been a busy bee, so it’s only right she enjoys some downtime. Last week, she announced that Monarca, the tequila family empire series that she serves as executive producer of, has been renewed for a second season.
She’s also got five different projects that she’s acted in over the past few months being prepared for audiences. She’s currently filming Marvel’s Eternals, which she’ll star in alongside Angelina Jolie.
Salma celebrated 30 years as an actress and her 53rd birthday in the last two months, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at her. She looks even younger now than she did in the early days in her career!
Salma has shared her feelings about aging quite openly. In 2017, she told the New York Times, “One of the reasons I don’t dye my hair is because I don’t have the patience to sit through it. I don’t want to spend what’s left of my youth pretending I’m younger and then not enjoying life.”
Earlier this year, she reemphasized that she isn’t doing anything, in particular, to try to stop the hands of time. “I haven’t done an-y-thing,” she told Town & Country. “I don’t know how to explain it.”
Salma has a magnetism to her because no part of her is particularly indulgent of fame. Despite her mega-rich husband, endless beauty, and homes across different countries, she’s very grounded and approachable.
She’s also at a stage in her life where she’s finally able to exert power over her profession. She’s put in enough years in Hollywood films that she can now pick and choose her projects, leaving time for her directing and producing.
Salma is, in every sense of the word, a powerhouse. She has the commanding attention of a boss while still showing off a heart of gold. Her realness is the quality that takes her everywhere, and she shows no signs of ever stopping.
