Salma Hayek is one of the best-known Mexican American actresses today. She was born in September 2, making her a true blue Virgo. Virgos are known to be meticulous and being a bit of perfectionist when it comes to pressing life situations. Hayek has always proved her mettle in acting when she portrayed the prolific artist Frida Kahlo in the movie Frida, which earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.
Before starring in films, Hayek trained in acting and English fluency when she moved to Los Angeles in 1991. Like a true Virgo she’s very detail-oriented and makes sure to know everything about a project before embarking on it. This may seem like they’re indecisive and slow but actually, Virgos are very good in timing their decisions. Her first movie role was actually a starring role opposite Antonio Banderas in the 1995 movie Deperados and the movie was an automatic box-office success and helped catapult Hayek to public consciousness.
In 2003, she reprised her role in Desperados with Once Upon a Time in Mexico. She also tried her hand in producing movies as well. She served as executive producer in her much-acclaimed movie Frida. She also tried producing TV Shows and in 2006, she bought the exclusive American rights to hugely successful Mexican telenovela Yo Soy Betty La Fea and turned it to an NBC sitcom Ugly Betty. The show was successful and ran from 2006 to 2010. She even guest-starred in the show as Sofia Reyes, an irate magazine editor, and this earned her an Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy in 2007.
Virgos may seem cold and distant but on the inside, they’re strong, passionate and intense. They have a deep longing for order and control. They are always patient and expects people to be the same. Hayek confirmed her engagement to multimillionaire businessman Francois-Henri Pinault and her pregnancy in 2007. She gave birth to her first daughter Valentina Pinault in September 2007.
In early 2008, Pinault and Hayek broke off their engagement. A Virgo woman, when faced with certain life decisions, take time to weight things are decide. They are loyal and devoted partners, although typically seen as old-fashioned and conservative. The couple eventually decided to reconcile and were married on Valentine’s Day 2009 in Paris, France. They also married a second time in April, this time in Venice, Italy.
