Salma Hayek is revealing more than just her cleavage for Spain's V Magazine. The sexy Latina is opening up about her citizenship telling the mag:

    "I was an illegal immigrant in the United States. It was for a small period of time, but I still did it."

The gorgeous Mexican actress, 44, who says she experienced racism while trying to build her career, says:

    "I had to endure the worst time of all in terms of racial discrimination in Hollywood when I first started out. It was inconceivable to American directors and producers that a Mexican woman could have a lead role."

Hayek is now considered the most powerful Latino star in Hollywood. Guess success is the best revenge.
