Q&A with Salma Hayek
1. What's your number one beauty rule?
Never go to sleep without washing your face, no matter how tired you are.

2. What surprised you about motherhood?
I don't know if it's motherhood that's surprising or that Valentina is so surprising. I am in awe of her-she's very magical. I feel so connected to her but at the same time I discover something new about her every day.

3. What superpower do you wish to have?
The power to make people be kind to each other. Actually, I stole that answer from a friend!

4. What is your favorite color?
I went through my purple phase-maybe a bit too much! I also like reds and blues. Right now, I think it's midnight blue.
MORE COLORSMost colorful thing I own: "My rose garden. It's very big so there's every color."
Preferred shoe color: "Black is what I wear the most, but I like boots in a dark brown or a wine color."
Best car color: "Silver. It's clean and neutral but it still has light to it."
Sheets: "White."Favorite lipstick shade: "I go for plums."Favorite eye shadow shades: "Browns and aubergine are my pick."
5. Most colorful character you've played?
Frida amp#91;Kahloamp#93; for sure. There was a lot of happiness and celebration in that life. Even in her paintings of tragic things there is humor, there's always color. She was full of life.

6. Do you follow any style rules?
I follow them not because they're a rule but because some of them make sense. Like you don't want to wear white to a wedding. You should let the bride be the one in white.
