Salma Hayek Showed Off More Than She Should Have!
Praying For Breasts
Mexican actress Salma Hayek said in an interview on BBC’s "The Graham Norton Show": "I went to a church that had a saint that was supposed to do a lot of miracles," Hayek said. "I put my hands in the holy water and went: Please Jesus give me some boobs."
Salma raised eyebrows when she famously and publicaly breast-fed a hungry infant in Sierra Leone, where she was promoting a UNICEF initiative to eradicate tetanus. She nonchalantly explained: "If you have milk, you have milk, and if they're hungry, they're hungry."
Hayek's on-screen sex scene with actor Colin Farrell in "Ask The Dust" won her the highly desired Best Nude Scene Award in 2006.
Her full name is Salma Hayek Jimenez and she was born on September 2, 1966 in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico.

When Hayek and "Friends" star Matthew Perry filmed the movie "Fools Rush In," there were rumors that the on-screen lovers hated each other in real life. Both dispelled the rumors some time later.

Puss In Boots

Hayek, who was raised Catholic, said she is not very devout anymore and does not believe in the institution [Church], but still believes in Jesus Christ and God.
