Salma Hayek today clocked over 100,000 likes in under an hour for bringing back the “good old days.” The 54-year-old actress, whose upcoming role in “The Eternals” has seen her solidly trending throughout May and June, today took it back to the old-school on Instagram, posting for her 17.9 million followers and showing a little skin. Salma, who fills her feed with up-to-date snaps but regularly honors the platform’s adored Throwback Thursday, had honored the popular hashtag, and she proved popular with her snap. See why below.
Scroll for the photo. Salma, this year making headlines for embracing her age as she confirmed pulling her “own stunts” in upcoming movie “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,” had gone sensual and glam with her throwback. The Mexican’s photo showed her in a high-end and old-fashioned bathroom, one adored with marbles and gilt-framed mirrors as she posed with a vintage white dress placed across her – but not on her.
The gorgeous snap also brought in a wet-haired feel, but it remained void of provocation.
Salma, taking on a goddess vibe as she posed, took to her caption in three languages – while English and Spanish are the standard on her Instagram, the MCU face has recently been using French as she shouts out billionaire husband François-Henri Pinault.
“The good old days. Los buenos viejos tiempos. Le bon vieux temps #tbt,” she wrote. Quickly noticing the update and leaving a like was “Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot. “Wow,” one fan replied, with the thought echoed by many. More photos after the snap.
Salma, this year profiled by Variety and revealing both her neat-fatal COVID battle (one requiring oxygen) and the anti-Hispanic hate she’s endured in Hollywood, also opened up on the industry being male-dominated.
“Nobody really looked into my value. If you are a woman and you are in a movie that is very successful and they say you are their favorite character, they will still give all credits of the box office to the guy. They don’t count who you’re bringing into the theaters,” she revealed. More photos below.
Salma, now #superhero via “The Eternals” as she joins A-List actress Angelina Jolie for the much-anticipated flick, added:
“I thought I was going be an action star. That’s how I started. But at some point at a certain age, I was sure it was never going to happen because it didn’t when it made sense. Now that it doesn’t make any sense, it’s all happening.”
Salma then called being cast in a Marvel movie a “shock.” If you missed the big kiss with the mega-rich husband, just scroll.
