Salma Hayek is one of the most successful Mexicans in Hollywood, her career has been successful both in Mexico and in the United States, but she revealed that 14 years ago wanted to quit actingbecause she was not even interested in continuing to be an artist.
Valentina Paloma Pinault came into her parents’ lives to change their perspective on everything, because Salma Hayek thought that the birth of her daughter was the perfect time to retire from the entertainment industry and dedicate herself to her family since nothing mattered more than the good of his firstborn.
In interview with Vogue Mexicofor the first time that Valentina and Salma pose together for a magazinethe protagonist of Eternals He revealed that 14 years ago, when his daughter was born, nothing mattered to him, more than his baby, because it was his dream come true.
And it is that, as the Veracruzana explained, at 40 years old she already had a completely stable career, she was famous and had “the partner of my life”but she thought she was missing a daughter, so when she found out she was going to have her, she wanted to put everything aside and put all her attention on this new facet of her life.
“I already wanted this daughter so much that nothing else mattered to me. Neither my career nor anythingI think that helped me a lot. I also felt that I had already done many things in my life, so it was already a different stage for me because I had already done things that I was already very proud of.
It was for this reason that he decided to retire from acting, although it was not something that lasted for long.
As she shared, it was her husband, the businessman Francois Henri Pinault, who suggested that she return to work months after she had already left the cameras.
Pinault explained that possibly might miss his profession and could tap into your creativity. Hayek agreed to return to the big screen, but only if it was going to be possible to put his family before any project, however important it might be.
“François helped me a lot because I was willing not to work anymorebut when Valentina was a little over a year old, she told me that I had to go back to work because at some point I might miss my profession”
It was for this reason that three years later having had Valentina, Salma returned to his activities as an actress, but never the same as before being pregnant.
Although Pinault and Salma’s daughter is currently 14 years old, the actress confessed that she continues to pay all her attention to her. Furthermore, she revealed that the decisions concerning her work and her private life are getting more and more complicated, but she is determined that “The family always comes to the fore”.
That is why Hayek only accepts main characters of major movies when your daughter is away camp. If not, she only accepts small roles, although relevant, and agrees with François Pinault not to leave his daughter alone, Salma explained.
Although Valentina is aware of how complicated Salma’s life is as a mother and Hollywood star, she revealed that she would like follow the steps of the actress and try your luck at the movies.
The young woman confessed that her intention is become a film directorbut he would like to start his career within the artistic medium beforehand, so, first of all, he will look for become an actress.
