Salma Hayek is packing on the PDA with billionaire husband François-Henri Pinault. The 54-year-old actress, married to the Kering founder since 2009, today dedicated her Instagram update to celebrating her spouse’s birthday: Pinault turns 59 today and his famous wife was all smooches in a photo celebrating their marriage. Posting for her 17.9 million followers, the “Frida” star put on a massive couples display, this just months after she defended being married to a man worth over $44 billion. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Salma, who remains in many ways guarded over her marriage, has been steadily sharing more shots of Pinault. His Kering company owns luxury brands including Gucci and Bottega Veneta. On Friday, “The Eternals” actress shared a photo showing her outdoors, possibly on a boat, and definitely in the love mood as she wrapped both arms around her husband, kissing the side of his head, and making him smile.
Salma wore a dark jacket and shades, with Pinault seen in a chic suit.
The stunning shot came with Salma gushing over her husband as she took to three languages, writing: “Joyeux anniversaire mon Amour – Feliz cumpleaños mi Amor – Happy birthday my love ♥️.”
Salma has been making headlines for opening up on her marriage. In February, and while on the “Armchair Expert” podcast, the Mexican shut down suggestions she’d married Pinault for his money. “And, you know, when I married him, everybody said, ‘Oh, it’s arranged marriage, she married him for the money,” she began. See the rest after the kiss.
Hayek, continuing, added: “I’m like, ‘Yeah, whatever, b-tch. Think what you want.’ Fifteen years together, and we are strong in love. And I don’t even get offended, I’m like, ‘Yeah, whatever.”
“There is a discrimination also to rich men. Immediately you think because somebody’s rich, [they] might not be a good person, might be somebody materialistic, might be somebody that doesn’t have values,” she fired on, listing a list of “misconceptions” she claimed she’s basically already “heard.” Skip the jump for the rare pool photo.
Salma and her husband share 13-year-old daughter Valentina, who rarely appears on her mother’s Instagram but has twice this past year. Once via a desert quad-biking snap and once with the above photo, one coming as a pool stack throwback as Salma rocked a pink bathing suit. The November 2020-shared shot came with Hayek writing:
“Never in my greatest dreams I could have imagined that I get to share my life with such a wonderful and extraordinary man. You are our strength, you are our inspiration, you are our home.”
