Not many celeb ladies find it easy to cope with their bodies changing during pregnancy, but Salma Hayek seems to have taken it worse than most, describing her own body as ‘completely disfigured’. We still thought you looked great, Salma!
Salma gained 50lbs when she was pregnant with daughter Valentina in 2007, and it totally changed her outlook on her body. She told Glamour magazine’s Glam Belleza Latina, “I gained so much weight, I got an opportunity to see myself completely disfigured in many different ways - for a very good reason - and I don’t regret it for a second.”
While she may not have been happy with herself, Salma says seeing her body looking totally different made her appreciate how she usually looks and helped her to get rid of the body hang-ups she had before. She said, “That’s when I started appreciating my body. The things that I used to criticize, they were not that bad after all. I did get it back, shockingly.”
Many female celebrities have been faced with unfairly extreme scrutiny over their weight gain during pregnancy, including Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson. Salma said, “We've got to fight for our confidence every day in modern life because we live in a society that is very harsh to women. You have to be smart and successful and a good mother and beautiful and young and skinny forever.” Big or small, we think you look great either way!
