Salma Hayek is getting challenged for celebrating Valentine’s Day in a bikini and with a man worth $44 billion. The 54-year-old actress, who rarely features husband François-Henri Pinault on her Instagram, today broke the mold as she marked the most romantic day of the year, posting with a stunning bikini PDA and with her 2009-married spouse. Salma, followed by 17.4 million on Instagram, was quick to rack up the likes, but there’s always someone leaving a less-than-welcome comment. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo and bear in mind the above one is a throwback, one Hayek made 2020 headlines for as she gushed about her husband and shared a rare photo of the couple’s 13-year-old daughter Valentina. Posting today without the kid, but showing that happy couples make one, the “Like A Boss” star updated with a giant kiss for the man she can’t get over, seen indoors amid a shabby chic setting and in a black bikini with a lacy white cover-up.
Salma, who wore shades and only showed one side of her face, was all bundled up in Pinault’s arms, even giving him a big smooch, with the Kering founder seen smiling at the camera from behind shades and in a simple t-shirt. The Mexican kept her caption brief, using only a hashtag and writing: “#happyvalentinesday” for a total 30,000+ likes in just 12 minutes.
The comments section is never dull on Hayek’s IG, last year making headlines for its X-rated coments as the star stripped down to a bikini.
A comment quickly gaining likes called out the husband, with the fan writing: “Can’t believe you’re 54 and he’s 58, he looks waaaay older than you! They say that white skin ages faster?? love foreveeeer❤️.”
Salma does not appear to have responded to the remark, one that also seemed to tap into race, something that Hayek has spoken out about, having claimed she’s been turned down for movie roles for being Hispanic. Others, meanwhile, simply sent love: “Wow what a beautiful pic! my favorite couple in the world ❤️,” one fan wrote. See her views on his money below!
If you think Salma married him for the money, think again. The MCU actress has spoken out on her husband’s immense wealth, stating she wants no part of it. “I have a system in my life that I’ve chosen, where my expenses from before the marriage are my expenses,” she told Allure, adding:
“And he goes, ‘I know. That’s why I want to marry you. Maybe that’s also part of what works great in my marriage. I still have my independence. But he likes it. I get a lot of respect from him.”
If you prefer Hayek without the husband, scroll for her admitting her assets couldn’t fit into her skimpy German peasant dress.
