Salma Hayek Covers Town & Country’s April Issue

Posted on March 07, 2019

“The Hummingbird Project” star Salma Hayek covers the April 2019 issue of Town & Country magazine photographed by Victor Demarchelier and styled by Miranda Almond. 



On her character in this month’s thriller The Hummingbird Project (in theaters March 15): “They’re rare. And if you’re Mexican they’re practically nonexistent.”

On the joys and struggles of Instagram: “Funnily enough, I have 8.6 million followers…doing it on my own! I remember my first Boomerang. I did it, but it was without my head, and I got so frustrated I just posted it. I said, ‘Sorry, guys. I tried but I really can’t get it.’”

On her husband François-Henri Pinault and what she keeps private: “[Pinault] is the best husband in the world. I get to be who I am with him, and I don’t feel that somebody tries to limit me. I’m not going to tell you [how we met]. It’s such a romantic, amazing story, but it is mine. I don’t want to vulgarize it by making it into a story to make myself interesting.”

On those who were surprised when she married Pinault: “A lot of people are very shocked that I married who I married. And some people are even intimidated now by me. But it’s another way of showing racism. They can’t believe this Mexican ended up in the life that she has, and they’re uncomfortable around me.”

On Harvey Weinstein’s discrediting her story following her 2017 New York Times article: “There is a theory that women of color are easy to discredit.”

On becoming a mother at age 41: “I think I’m a better mother because I had her [Valentina] later. But I do get tired, I’m not going to lie.”

On plastic surgery: “I haven’t done an-y-thing.”
