Salma Hayek‘s smartphone snapped at just the right moment this weekend – and it made for the perfect Instagram update. The 53-year-old actress shifted the focus away from her makeup-free face and onto a beautiful beetle that had landed on her shades on Sunday, with the selfie also ticking boxes for being low-key and showing a pool backdrop via the sunglasses reflection.
Salma, followed by 15.3 million, might have been slammed for shaving an alpaca last month without a mask, but little – if any – complaints came in as her post went live today.
Scroll for the photo. It comes amid a string of animal-centric updates from the “Frida” actress, with July bringing Salma hosing down her dog in her backyard, plus the alpaca she shaved on the luxurious farmhouse estate she’s been quarantining in.
Salma’s photo showed her snapped close up and cocking her head to the side while flashing hints of a black swimsuit. The Mexican wore tinted shades showing lawns and pool waters nearby, but the focus was on the exquisite beetle that had settled on the rim of the eyewear.
A caption from Salma read: “Is it true that beetles are a lucky charm? Even if they’re on your sunglasses? ?. Have a lucky ? Sunday. Es cierto que los escarabajos son de buena suerte? Aunque lo traigas en los lentes de sol? ?.Que tengan un domingo de suerte ? .”
Hashtags then confirmed the eyewear ro be from swanky British designer Alexander McQueen: “@alexandermcqueen #luckycharms #sunglasses.”
Over 75,000 likes were left in an hour – Instagram was loving it. “What an absolutely lovely pic ???????,” one fan wrote.
Keep scrolling for a video of where Salma is hunkered down. The sprawling sanctuary that’s been the basis for the actress’ #FarmLife has been posted to her social media – comments, however, haven’t proven 100% positive as fans point out her marital status to billionaire businessman François-Henri Pinault. His net worth sits at over $33 billion.
“We know, Billionaires have it like that. Thanks for rubbing it in lol,” a fan had written. Salma has been married to 58-year-old Pinault since 2009.
If you don’t live inside Salma’s Instagram, the account comes as a mix of smoking hot throwbacks and up-to-date snaps. The latter largely show Hayek makeup-free and showing off her stunning good looks – fans tend not to feel she looks her 53 years.
While 2020 has seen fans accuse Salma Hayek of doing “too much Botox” – and she’s clapped back with denial over the facial treatment – the response to Salma baring her face has largely proven positive.
