Our June Cover Girl Is… Salma Hayek Pinault!May 18, 2010 @ 9:26 am
Salma Hayek Pinault’s name is more of a mouthful these days, but it’s just because the actress, who has a 2-year-old with her fashion executive husband Francois-Henri Pinault, is fully embracing family life. “It was [daughter] Valentina’s request. I didn’t think about it until she brought it up,” Hayek Pinault told InStyle. “We were shooting a film, and she saw my chair with my name on it. She said, ‘What does it say there?’ And I said, ‘Salma Hayek.’ And she said, ‘What about Pinault? Why not Pinault?’ Because [in Paris] people say ‘Madame Pinault.’ I said to myself, ‘This is who I am now. I’m starting a whole new life. I’ve never been happier. Why shouldn’t I share it with the people who have been supporting me my whole career, who have been with me since the beginning?’” The usually private star let us in on the details of her blissful home life, including the perks of being married to a man who’s really into fashion.
