Salma Hayek proved mega popular today – very possibly for being drenched in a pool and in a tiny bikini. The 53-year-old Latina who remains as worshipped for her curves as she is for her acting talents updated her Instagram on Tuesday with what seemed to be a continuation from her post seven days ago.
If you missed it, the “Frida” actress emerging in slow-motion from pool waters last Tuesday has now hit 2.6 million views. Today’s photo brought the same red bikini but a different view. Check out the photo and comments below.
If you need a refresh on the video, just scroll. As The Blast reported, Salma’s bikini babe slo-mo clocked her a staggering 250,000 views in just 20 minutes. With 15.3 million Instagram followers, the Mexican isn’t quite on a Kardashian level. But those fans are die-hard.
Today’s photo, meanwhile, showed Salma lying on her back in her sun-drenched pool and with outstretched arms. The fiesty Latina’s cleavage was on show, but the vibe was unprovocative. In fact, it was pretty zen. Salma also offered a caption.
“Go with the flow #gowiththeflow. Déjate llevar. #summervibes,” Salma wrote.
Over in the comments section, a cheeky remark shooting right up to the top has now sparked a bit of a debate. The user kicking it all off wrote:
“She will never drown… ?”
While such a comment can easily enter seedy territory or body-shaming, Salma’s followers seem to have learned that the Emmy nominee commands a certain level of respect. A follower appearing to be female replied: “Didn’t want to say it but mine keep me floating too. I think hers are real. LOL.”

Clearly, the comments section was in the mood for fun – “No life jacket needed ????,” another user added.
Positive feedback on Hayek’s Instagram isn’t a guarantee, though. Earlier this year, a barefaced shot of the actress unleashed a Botox storm after a troll wrote that Salma was using “too much” of the age-defying treatment. Salma clapped back – she doesn’t even use Botox. Likewise an eyebrow-raiser and more recent has been the star shaving an alpaca on her rural farm lock-down estate – fans felt she should’ve been wearing a mask when around others.
Salma’s Instagram remains unique. Being bare-faced, beautiful, and 50+ is nothing new in Hollywood, but not many starlets are flexing their camera skills like Hayek. On August 2, the star made headlines for perfectly capturing a beetle that had landed on her sunglasses while posing in a swimsuit with hints of a pool in the shades’ reflection.
“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 ?,” she captioned the shot.
