45-year-old Hollywood actress, Salma Hayek, has gone topless in the August issue of Allure marking her second time covering the beauty magazine.
According to the Huffington Post, inside the cover story, she talks about everything from her high school style (“I was punk for a little bit”) to her nearly nude shoot (“[It’s] very elegant; it doesn’t look vulgar”) to her marriage to billionaire François-Henri Pinault, who she wed in 2009.
“I wish I knew [when I was younger] that I was going to fall crazy in love with the perfect man,” she said. “I was so worried, and I dated some people I shouldn’t have dated. You get desperate, and you start seeing wonderful things in, like, the wrong guys.”
Pinault was the one who encouraged her to go back to work after giving birth to their daughter, Valentina, born in 2007.
“I said, ‘I don’t think I want to work anymore,'” she told Allure. “And it was François who said, ‘Oh, no, you’re going back to work.’ And I said, ‘I don’t want to.’ ‘Well, you have to. We’re not putting up with some lazy girl in the house. That’s not who I married.'”
Hayek continued. “And then he said something so beautiful. ‘I don’t want to be deprived of your work. I want to watch it, too. And the world has not seen the best of you yet. So you cannot stop until some of that is put out.’ So he sort of really pushed me, like, ‘Get up on your feet and get out there.’ And he was right.”
