Salma Hayek’s a perfect 10 (years of sexy)…
The 48-year-old Mexican actress picked up the Decade of Hotness award at Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards 2015.
Hayek, who rocked a sexy low-cut dress to pick up the gong made of golden antlers from actor Liam Neeson, recalled her first time being called a “bombshell” after Desperado was released.
“My English was worse than now and I read the reviews that, ‘Salma Hayek was a bombshell,’ and to me this means that I was terrible, that I had bombed!” said Hayek. “Everyone told me, ‘No, no, it means that you’re great, that you’re sexy!’ And [I was like], ‘That’s it? They didn’t talk about my acting?”
Hayek says a nod to an actress’ “hotness” becomes more and more precious to her as she gets older.
“When you start you’re like, ‘No, I want them to see me for my talent, and know me as an actress,’ ” she told reporters on Saturday.
“Now?! They want to give me a decade of hotness – I’m like, ‘Bring it on!’ ” says the mother of Valentina Paloma Pinault. “You really like to be ‘hot’ after you’re 40.”
Hayek says she owes her hotness to husband François-Henri Pinault.
“You know makes you ‘hot’? When you have the hots for someone,” she said. “I have the hots for my husband, and that keeps you, I think that keeps that in you. When you like somebody it comes out of you, almost naturally, and you’re motivated. Love motivates you.”
Hayek has been married to Pinault, a French businessman, since 2009.
