Where are you ladies headed?
Salma Hayek and her adorable daughter Valentina made their way through LAX yesterday, and the duo sure travel in style! The Savages actress wore black jeans and a cutout black tank, but she opted for sensible sneakers for her travel day.
The 45-year-old brunette beauty landed herself in hot water recently over comments she made in the German edition of Vogue. Speaking about her role in Savages as the head of a Mexican drug cartel, the Latina star said, "I am proud to have been involved in this film with all these great actors. Honestly, I hardly had any memories of what it is to be Mexican. My life is completely different now."
Her fans were outraged she denounced her heritage, but the Frida star quickly issued a statement to the AP, insisting her comments were lost in translation.
"I have never denied my background or my culture. I have taught my child to embrace her Mexican heritage, to love my first language, Spanish, to learn about Mexican history, music, folk art, food, and even the Mexican candy I grew up with. I have always been an active part of my community. I have tried my whole life to represent my Mexican roots with honor and pride. It saddens me when my words are lost in translation and taken out of context to hurt the people of Mexico, whom I love," she explained.
We believe you Salma!
Do you think Salma's quotes were taken out of context?
