Poor Salma Hayek! It must be hard to live in a strange world where all of your coworkers and neighbors are actively trying to have the BMI of a wooden marionette just to look good on-camera. It would be enough to make any gorgeous actress doubt her own jaw-dropping curvaceousness. “I am on the limit of chubbiness because I love my food and my wine,” the Savages actress claims in her Harper’s Bazaar UK interview. “It’s not the best for fashion, but it’s good for my mood. I am happy because I eat.” We’re inclined to think Hayek got the word “chubbiness” confused with “having a body so bodacious that the average human is constantly staring at it in hushed awe,” but somehow we don’t think that’s the case.
Maybe we’ve just been inundated with stories about female celebrities’ weight recently, from Rebel Wilson to Lady Gaga, but hearing the number one stunner talking as if she has to explain the way she looks truly makes us upset. On the other hand, Hayek points out, not being bone-thin has it’s advantages. “I am 46; I will not have Botox,” she reveals. “You know why? I don’t need to do it because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetables, I eat everything. If you exercise too much and you don’t eat enough, it takes its toll on the skin. Everything starts aging. If you don’t eat carbs, you slow your metabolism down. And you know what? You look miserable.” Oh, those poor marionette people!
