Hayek's father, Sami Hayek from Lebanon , was a politician and manager in the oil business. Her Mexican mother Diana Jiménez was an opera singer . At the age of twelve, Salma left the city of Coatzacoalcos in southeast Mexico and went to a Catholic boarding school in the US state of Louisiana . Hayek had to leave school after she became suspicious of bad behavior. She moved to live with her aunt in Houston and stayed there until she was 17. After graduating from school, she went back to her home country and studied international relations and drama in Mexico City .
However, she then dropped out of studies in favor of acting. After a few theatrical appearances, she got the lead role in the Mexican telenovela Teresa , which was broadcast in over 20 countries. With this she achieved her breakthrough, in her home country Mexico she became a star.
Hayek left the hit television show for a career in Hollywood . In 1991, despite her teenage years in the USA, she moved to Los Angeles and took acting and speaking lessons. In the first few years she was disappointed with the meager supply of substantial roles for Latin American women. In January 1993 she landed a supporting role in the film Mi Vida Loca .
While, according to her own admission, it was still easier as a "Lebanese" than as a "Mexican" to get attractive film roles in Hollywood at the beginning of the 1990s, she is now profiting from the "Latin" boom that began in the USA in the 1990s.
In 1995 she starred at the side of Antonio Banderas in the film Desperado , director Robert Rodriguez had become aware of her by chance. In 1996 she and Rodriguez worked together again, in From Dusk Till Dawn she played a vampire. In particular, the scene with her snake dance , which is musically accompanied by Tito & Tarantula's title After Dark , made Hayek famous for good.
In 2002 she worked on the film Frida as co-producer and actress of the main character Frida Kahlo. In 2003 Hayek was nominated for both an Oscar and a Golden Globe for best actress for her role in the film Frida . The film received two Academy Awards.
By founding her own film production company, she gained a second mainstay. She can now give herself roles and is one of the top earners in the industry today.
Salma Hayek, who is now fluent in Spanish , Arabic , Portuguese and English, has been a mother since September 2007. The girl's father is the French businessman François-Henri Pinault , whom she married in a small group in Paris on February 14, 2009 , after breaking her engagement with him in July 2008.
At the beginning of 2012, Hayek was elevated to the rank of Knight of the French Legion of Honor by the French government .
In December 2017 Salma Hayek accused the film producer Harvey Weinstein of having sexually harassed and harassed her during the preparation and shooting of the film Frida in 2002. Weinstein denies the allegations.
Hayek is committed to charitable causes. Among other things, she supported the joint initiative by Pampers and UNICEF , which had set itself the goal of eradicating tetanus with vaccinations and accompanying measures by 2012.
During a UNICEF visit in 2009 to a hospital in the West African country of Sierra Leone , where tetanus infant mortality is highest in the world, Hayek breastfed a baby who was crying with hunger - its mother was unable to feed the child herself due to a lack of milk. Hayek sparked a heated debate in the United States.
