Salma Hayek, who’s been on an absolute content tear over the last few months, has a message for the haters who think she married rich businessman François-Henri Pinault, 58, for his money. “Think what you want,” she told Yahoo!
I’m still not totally sure what Hayek, 54, is up to in her career, but something big has to be going on because all of a sudden, she’s dropping f-bombs during Yahoo! interviews, she’s on the Instagram bikini rager and has a refreshing, take-no-prisoners approach to life these days.
“You know the thing is that in pictures, you cannot begin to guess the magic in him,” Hayek said. “He’s made me become a much better person and grow in such a good, healthy way.”
“And you know when I married him, everybody said, ‘Oh, it’s an arranged marriage, she married him for the money.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, whatever, b—h. Think what you want: 15 years together, and we are strong in love.'”
Guys, remember that Hayek is also loaded. She has that eff you money. Maybe not at François-Henri’s level, but she can go Dutch and not have it set her back until the next pay period.
“My guy finishes work, no matter how hard it was — and trust me he has a lot of responsibilities — [with a] big smile on his face, happy to be home, happy to see me and the kids, make us laugh,” she gushed. “When we go on vacation, he completely shuts off, he’s in the moment. And so it’s not just an insult to me — I’m not the one being judged only. ‘Oh, she’s an actor, she’s going for the money.’ They cannot begin to imagine what a joy that human being is.”
It’s not just Salma heaping praise on her husband. Actor Dax Shepard says François-Henri is “a f–king nice, fun, generous, kind, warm guy,” and he’s “super sexy.”
And there you have it. Salma Hayek didn’t marry her husband for his money, and she’s completely happy. Take notes, fellas. If the bad boy act isn’t working, maybe you want to mix it up and go with the François-Henri approach in 2021 and see what happens.
