Salma Hayek has been delivering yoga-esque energy while balancing in high heels, all as part of her recent headline-making Variety shoot. The 54-year-old actress, this year politely reminding fans that she’s pulling her own stunts in “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,” took her abilities to a slightly lower level as she posed in glamorous shots to accompany her interview, with one photo catching the eye as the “Frida” star went full yogi. The zen snap brought out style and Hayek “pulling no punches.” Check it out below.
Scroll for the yoga moves. Salma had made January 2021 headlines for telling her Instagram followers: “Never let anyone tell you you are too old.”
“Get ready for this summer where at 54 I get to pull some of my best stunts ever,” she added. Here less about the bad girl action and more about the sleek cream pantsuit, Salma was seen posing with one leg hiked up onto a chair amid a refined indoor setting and chandeliers. A boss look gets boss moves in Hayek’s books.
The Mexican, revealing to Variety that she’s been turned down for roles on account of her heritage, was seen in platform heels and with Buddha-like hands. While one leg rested on the top of a chair, the other held up the star’s body weight for a head-turning finish.
Turns out, Salma is a devoted yogi, but her 2020 People reveal did not come with the standard gym nut vibe afforded by your average Hollywood starlet. See the reveal after the video, where you’ll need to swipe.
Opening up to People last year, the taco lover dished on how she stays in shape, stating: “I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long. So even when you brush your teeth, you’re working the muscles.”
“It’s restorative yoga,” she added. “She taught me to tone [my muscles] without clenching them. The 2020 and 2021 swimsuit snaps speak for themselves. More photos below.
The much sought-after star, this year bringing “The Eternals” and Amazon Prime Video flick “Bliss” alongside “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,” added: “I don’t have time to exercise. I am working. I’ve had some 20-hour days.”
Salma’s Variety interview also brought a reveal that she’d nearly died from COVID, choosing to keep quiet as she needed oxygen and remained in isolation at home for seven weeks. “I’d rather die at home,” she told the media outlet.
