Uh-oh. It looks like Salma Hayek is getting some flack for comments she recently made in an interview she did with German Vogue. The translation might be sketchy, but Salma basically says that she is living such a different life now that she’s famous and married to one of the richest men in France that she totally forgot what it’s like to be Mexican. Or at least that’s what we think she says.
Here’s what we’re reading from Vogue Germany:
“I am proud to have been involved in this film with all these great actors,” Hayek told Vogue Deutsch (as translated from German to English). “Honestly, I hardly had any memories of what it is to be Mexican. My life is completely different now.”
“It’s true that we have a problem in Mexico and it is important to talk about it. However, the U.S. is playing a major role, even if they claim it is purely a Mexican problem. More than 30,000 people have been killed in the past few years in this drug war — mainly by arms that come from the U.S.”
“My life is completely different. It’s great thanks to my daughter Valentina and my husband.”
“It’s much easier to get an Oscar than a great husband. My career is not as important as everything else I have achieved. If they offered me to change my life in exchange for being the most famous and the highest-earning actress, I wouldn’t accept.”
While I understand that her comments might tick off the Mexican population, what I don’t get is when she says it’s easier to get an Oscar than a good husband. Hmmm… do tell us more, Salma, do tell us more. What do you guys think?
