While being interviewed by Extra's Terri Seymour along with her castmates from the film "Grown Up", Salma revealed her absolute terror of snakes when a four foot long snake slithered into view and she went into a complete panic.

During a charity fundraiser hosted by Madonna, Salma paid a reported £175,000 for a private football lesson with David Beckham.

Her favorite movies are It Happened One Night, The Graduate, Gone with the Wind and Casablanca.

In conjunction with Pampers and UNICEF, Salma has served as the global spokesperson for the "One Pack = One Vaccine" campaign. It is a program that aims to provide tetanus vaccinations to developing countries where the disease is still rampant.

Salma Hayek Quotes
Salma Hayek: I keep waiting to meet a man who has more balls than I do.

Salma Hayek: People say we're all identical, but Jennifer Lopez is an American. She's from New York. She doesn't have an accent. Some of these Latin people - their Spanish is pathetic. They learned it when they became famous as Latinos.

Salma Hayek: People often say that 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder,' and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves.
