Salma Hayek was born in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico. She is the daughter of Diana Jimenez Medina, an opera singer of Spanish descent, and Sami Hayek Dominguez, the manager of an oil company of Lebanese descent, who once ran for mayor of Coatzacoalcos. Her name, Salma, (derived from the male name Salim) comes from the Arabic word salima, which means peace, security, health. She was brought up in a wealthy pious family and at the age of twelve was sent to study at a Catholic boarding school for girls in Louisiana. While Salma was there, doctors diagnosed her with dyslexia.
After leaving school due to behavioral problems, Salma briefly returned to Mexico, and soon moved to Houston, where she lived with her aunt until she was 17 years old. Then she entered the Ibero-American University in Mexico City, where she studied international relations.
Hayek met with actor Edward Norton for four years, from 1999 to 2003, and then with Josh Lucas from 2003 to 2004. Later, Salma Hayek was going to marry Francois-Henri Pinault (he is the owner of many famous fashion houses (Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci) and is one of the hundred richest people in the world), September 21, 2007 in Los Angeles, the couple had their firstborn. The girl was named Valentine Paloma Pino. In July 2008, the couple broke up, the daughter stayed with Salma. However, after a while they reconciled and on April 25, 2009 the couple got married in the ancient theater of La Fenice in Venice.
Her best friend is Spanish actress Penelope Cruz. Together they starred in the 2006 film The Bandits.
Director, producer and actress
Around 2000, Salma Hayek founded Ventanarosa, a production company, and began producing films and television projects. Her first experience in this type of activity was the film Nobody Writes to Colonel, which was chosen by Mexico to be nominated for an Oscar in the nomination for Best Foreign Film.
In 2002, the film "Frida" was released, in which Salma was a co-producer, and also played the main role of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, for whom she was nominated for an Oscar as the best actress. This made her, along with Katie Jurado and Adriana Barras, one of the three Mexican actresses who were nominated for this award. Largely thanks to her participation in the project, it was possible to assemble a star acting ensemble from Alfred Molina, Antonio Banderas, Ashley Judd, Jeffrey Rush, Edward Norton and Valeria Golino.
In 2003, Hayek made the film “The Miracle of Maldonado” for the Showtime cable network, for which she received a daily Emmy Award in the category “Outstanding Directing of a Children's, Youth or Family Program”.
In December 2005, Hayek made a music video for singer Prince called “Te Amo Corazon” (“I love you, sweetheart”), in which her friend Mia Maestro played.
In September 2006, Salma Hayek became executive producer of the television series Ugly Betty, aired worldwide from 2006 to 2010. When adapting to American television, she was helped by Ben Silverman, who owns the rights and texts of the Colombian telenovela “Yo soy Betty, la fea”, which was released in 2001. Initially, in 2004, the project was planned as a half-hour sitcom for NBC, but later, in 2006, it was picked up by ABC and given to producer Silvio Horta.
