Salma Hayek stuns on the cover of The Edit by Net-A-Porter


Hollywood actress Salma Hayek Pinault stuns on the cover of The Edit by Net-A-Porter magazine, February 2015 issue. Photographed under the lens of Nico and styled by Natalie Brewster. Actress, activist, wife, mother – this 48-year-old is looking better than ever before and all of it thanks to doing yoga. Here are the most interesting parts of the interview:

– On perfecting the work/life balance and teaching children to be more appreciative: “We’re constantly scrutinized, so we learn to be hard on ourselves because everybody is hard on us, even our children, because we are the ones who are there all the time, providing that attention. In the workplace, men get better paid. They are more easily promoted than [women]. In order to be considered a good wife or mother, and in the workplace, the expectations are so high. We have to be more demanding in the workplace. We need to be more assertive in that department, and stand our ground in our own homes, and teach our children to give us a break and be more appreciative.”

– On her acting career: “This is by far the busiest I have been in my life. The funny thing is that I really don’t even understand how [it all]came about. Maybe because when you don’t want something as much, you’re not desperate. You will see some of the best work of my life this year, because I’ve had the opportunity; because [the directors]gave me the roles. If you think about it, I’m limited by the way I talk and by the way I look. I’m 48 years old. Amazing, talented people [stop finding work]at 32, 33 sometimes! Not so much in London, but in the US it’s crazy.”

– About her Hollywood heroines: “I have so many! Marion Cotillard is extraordinary, but then Penélope [Cruz] has always been my hero and my friend. We’ve known each other for at least 20 years. By the way, Patricia Arquette! How amazing was her performance in the film Boyhood? Every year I have new heroes, because their work inspires me. Maybe in the old days there was this scary idea that actresses were very competitive with each other and they were all divas. [But] I’ve found so much kindness; I’ve been really supported by my peers.”
