Salma Hayek

Born September 2, 1966 in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico
Actress Salma Hayek is one of the most notable Mexican figures in Hollywood today. She is most famous for her work in the 2002 film Frida, where she was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award. In 2001 she received  Glamour magazine's  Woman of the Year Award, and then Time Magazine's "25 Most Influental Hispanics" award in 2005.

Salma comes from a prominent Veracruz family of Spanish and Lebanese descent.  She was raised Roman Catholic, and at  young age attended boarding school in the United States where she was diagnosed with dyslexia.  Salma later studied International Relations in Mexico City at the Universidad Iberomericanan. Her first name, Salma, is Arabic for "peace".

It wasn't until the age of 23 that Hayek began her acting career with a role in the successful Mexican TV series, Teresa.  She instantly became an Mexican hereo, and five years later starred in El Callejon de los Milagros, a film that  won more awards than any other in Mexican history.  At the age of 25 Salma moved to Los Angeles and started her Hollywood career.  Robert Rodriguez casted Salma in the in the 1995 film Desperado, where she co-starred with actor Antonio Banderas.  The film was major success and   Salma was even nominated for best supporting actress.  This kick-started her career and over the next decade she starred in over 25 films that include Frida (2002), Wild Wild West (1999), and Fools Rush In (1997).  Salma is married to French billionaire Francois Pinault and together the couple has one daughter, Valentina. In her personal life Salma is strongly involved with charitable organizations dealing with Women's rights advocacy.
