Hell yeh! I love her curves and that latin look. Can't believe she's 40 too. I can't abide skinny women like Keira Knightly. Yes she is good looking but she has no curves like Salma!

More appreciation and photos needed!!!!!! Love the bit in bold!!!!



Widely considered to be the first Mexican actress to become a Hollywood movie star since Dolores Del Rio, Salma Hayek is known for bringing a fiery presence and striking, dark-eyed beauty to the screen. A soap star in her native Mexico, Hayek risked her entire career to come to L.A., where she struggled to be taken seriously. Her discovery by director Robert Rodriguez, who cast her in his 1995 film Desperado, gave Hayek her breakthrough, and she subsequently gained a reputation as one of Hollywood's sexiest and busiest actresses.

The daughter of a Spanish mother and Lebanese father, Hayek was born in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico, on September 2, 1966. Raised in a devoutly Catholic family, she was sent to a Louisiana boarding school at the age of 12. After getting into trouble for terrorizing the nuns, Hayek returned to Mexico, but she was eventually sent to Houston, Texas, to live with her aunt, where she stayed until she was 17. She subsequently moved to Mexico City, where she studied International Relations as a university student, but, to the chagrin of her family, decided to drop out in order to pursue a career as an actress. Starting out in local theatre productions, she eventually moved to television and landed a starring role in the popular soap opera Teresa. The show's success made Hayek a celebrity in her native country, but, desiring something more, she shocked her fans by deciding to quit the show in order to pursue a career in L.A.

After taking a year to learn English and study acting with Stella Adler, Hayek got her first break when Allison Anders cast her in a supporting role in Mi Vida Loca (1993). The role allowed Hayek to obtain a Screen Actors Guild card, and after doing so, she continued to audition until she appeared on a Spanish-language cable access talk show that happened to count director Robert Rodriguez amongst its viewers. Rodriguez tracked Hayek down and promptly cast her in Desperado, his bigger-budget 1995 sequel to El Mariachi. The film, which also starred Antonio Banderas, succeeded in giving the actress her own plot on the Hollywood map, and Rodriguez again demonstrated his faith in her when he cast her in his next project, the vampire extravaganza From Dusk Till Dawn (1996).

Unfortunately for Hayek, the film, which also starred George Clooney, failed to do as well as expected, and Hayek's next few projects were similarly lackluster. The Faculty (1998), a teen thriller that cast Hayek as a teacher who turns into an alien, was an exception, and Kevin Smith's Dogma (1999), which featured her as a celestial muse, was fairly successful with critics and audiences. Also in 1999, Hayek had a starring role in what was to be her biggest film to date, Barry Sonnenfeld's Wild Wild West, which also starred Will Smith and Kevin Kline. Unfortunately for all involved, the film was a turkey. In 2000, Hayek could be seen in smaller, edgier ventures, including the independent comedy Chain of Fools, in which she played a centerfold-turned-cop, and Mike Figgis' experimental Time Code, which cast her as Jeanne Tripplehorn's lover. If these films ultimately didn't provide Hayek with a role that would draw attention to her genuine talent, this would soon change with the long awaited biography of tragic artist Frida Kahlo. With her role as the eponymous character in Frida (2002), Hayek disappeared into her subject so convincingly that not only would she return to the good graces of critics, but earn a Golden Globe nomination as well.

Salma's a lovely looking woman, and I think she's 10times the actress Penelope Cruz is.
Some pics for you Muckyman.

Have you seen Volver Bat, because Penelope kicks ass in it?!
But i think theyre both exploited as just pretty latino faces and really need to be taken seriously in Hollywood!

I've not seen Volver but I've seen Abre Los Ojos, and I didn't care for her too much, same in Blow. Well, she was good in Blow cos I hated her and we were meant to. But I just not keen on her, like I don't like Tom Cruise or Russell Crowe. I don't know what it is, but I can't be bothered with her. And she gets on me wick in the new L'Oreal advert. It's just me.

She was brill in Desperado, the first thing I saw her in. She was also good in From Dusk Till Dawn, Four Rooms (which was really the piece from Dusk Till Dawn) and Road Racers.
Would love to watch Freida.

What are people's favourite films Salma Hayek has appeared in?

My favourite is still Desperado, full of hip dialogue, full on double barrelled action and sexiness oozing from every pore. Great characters run throughout too.

Yeah, Desperado for me too. You are right Swan, she's just a likeable actress unlike Penelope Cruz....

Italian alcohol company Campari has taken a leaf out of Pirelli's girlie calendars by making its own with Salma Hayek.
Shot by celebrity snapper Mario Testino, the 2007 Hotel Campari calendar features the voluptuous Mexican beauty in a figure-hugging black dress, draped in expensive jewellery and good-looking blokes.

She's doing various things with a bottle of Campari (ooh err missus!!!) - except pouring herself a drink.
Only 9999 copies of the calendar, to be launched in Australia this month, have been made.

But you can check out the pics at http://www.campari.it.

Howdy. I think that Salma is one of the most beautiful actressess working today, and she's talented. I have enjoyed her performances in all the films I have seen her star in. I also
think that she has an amazing fugure and promotes a really healthy body image. I mean, just look at her. She's gorgeous  That photo from the Campari calender is amazing!
Ok......just been to that link...the whole calender is amazing
