Happy birthday, Salma Hayek! The Academy Award nominee turns 50 today and her complexion is as flawless as ever, leaving fans to wonder if the secret behind her ever-ravishing glow can be attributed to her namesake beauty line, Nuance Salma Hayek.
The Mexican-born actress recently executive produced and starred in Septembers of Shiraz, the story of a Jewish family caught in the crosshairs of the Iranian revolution, but not every one of her projects is quite so serious: Hayek lent her voice to this summer's hilarious Sausage Party, and stars alongside Alec Baldwin in the upcoming Drunk Parents.
Hayek finds inspiration in the strong roles she chooses (remember Frida and Ugly Betty?), always being mindful to fight for equal rights, especially as they pertain to women. We'd say she's a pretty incredible role model to Valentina Paloma Pinault, her mini-me 8-year-old daughter with fashion executive husband, François-Henri Pinault.
Take a look at her transformation through the years and celebrate the lovely lady's big day.
