The ‘Good Old Days’

The brunette’s gorgeous shot, which showed her wedding ring and came barefoot, was captioned: “The good old days. Los buenos viejos tempos. Le bon vieux temps” as she also added a #tbt for Throwback Thursday.
Over 100,000 likes poured in before the post was an hour old, with Israeli DC Universe actress Gal Gadot quickly leaving a like. “You look so stunning,” one fan replied. “Bella,” another wrote – and the compliments came in virtually every language. See the photo below – scroll for more snaps.
Revealing Near-Fatal COVID Battle
Salma is fresh from being profiled by Variety, a feature seeing her discuss her career, but also her battle with COVID, something she’d kept secret. Revealing she needed oxygen and was home in isolation for seven weeks, the star stated:
“My doctor begged me to go to the hospital because it was so bad,” then saying she’d replied: “I said, ‘No, thank you. I’d rather die at home.’”
“I had started doing Zooms at one point, but I could only do so many because I would get so tired,” she added.
Profiled For Being Mexican
Hayek also touched on her Mexican heritage, exposing the anti-Hispanic hate in the Hollywood industry.
“I remember there were two big comedies I auditioned for the lead. Afterwards, the directors told me that I was the best audition and that I was better than who they cast and that they regretted it. But at the time, they knew the studios wouldn’t have gone for a Mexican as the lead,” she told the magazine. Salma is of Mexican and Lebanese descent, born in Mexico.
