Salma Hayek's quotes

  • I keep waiting to meet a man who has more balls than I do.
  • I act tall!" "But look how short I am...I can't even act to be tall. I'm five-two. I can't even create the illusion that I am tall!
  • At the beginning [my career] was hard. People were like, 'Who is this Mexican jumping bean?'
  • "In my twenties I was offered lots of parts where there wasn't much to do but act sexy. I still get offered those roles - but now I take it as a compliment."Woman's World (7-11-06)
  • About Madonna: "She always paid attention to the Latin community. I was grateful somebody like her appreciated our culture" (InStyle magazine, Sept 2006).
  • If I go on a diet and work out, I'm always in a bad mood. I'd rather be a little heavier but nice.-quoted in Woman's Day 8-15-06 issue.
  • If a man lets all of my dogs sleep in the bed with us, then that is the most romantic thing. You must love my dogs in order to love me. A man who is nice to my animals and doesn't shoo them away - well, that's the height of romance.
  • It sounds trite to go after men who are nice but when you've been hurt a lot it becomes appealing.
  • [on being pregnant] You are like a swollen whale and never looked worse in your life. And somebody goes, 'You're glowing.' They don't have the courage to tell you how bad you look.
  • You've got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what you've got. It goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else.
  • I have no advice because his wife is Lebanese like me and I know his mother-in-law and his sister-in-law and I know those kids cannot be in better hands. [On George Clooney's becoming a father.]
  • More than 30 years ago, I started fighting for women's rights at the age of 25. Throughout my career I've always spoken about domestic violence. At the start of my career, no one would talk about it -- but people were fine about speaking about cancer.
  • I think that sometimes it's religion that keeps us separate though. If you take the religion out, if you take all the countries away, all the culture away, you will find that there is a purity to a human being and a unity to who we are.
