Salma Hayek opens up about her marriage to French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault (he's worth $11.5 billion) in the latest issue of Redbook.
The Puss in Boots star, 44, says that while it's "nice" being married to a billionaire, she makes her own way:
- "I work hard, I make my own living and I love it. I like having financial independence. I don't ever want to have to depend on anyone completely."
Pinault, 49, is CEO of a company that owns several fashion labels, but Salma says her husband doesn't support her, and doesn't tell her how to dress either.
- "Iâ€™m still a Mexican. I like to play fashion with him, but I'm nobody's Barbie."
Pinault is currently in an expensive custody battle with ex Linda Evangelista.
The couple have a daughter, Valentina, 4.
