Salma Hayek was ‘terrified’ of turning 50

Los Angeles, July 14 (IANS) Actress Salma Hayek has admitted that she used to be “terrified” of turning 50.

The “Everly” actress, who is turning 49 in September, has admitted that she used to be scared of getting old, because she was told her career wouldn’t last past the age of 35, reports mirror.co.uk.

Hayek said: “In the past, when I tried to imagine what I’d look like and what my life would be like at this age, I was terrified. I imagined myself looking old, but instead I think I still look Okay, and I’m fine with my appearance.

“For too many generations, women have suffered from this terrible lie that age 50 is like falling off a cliff. Women have believed for so long we’d act and feel as if we were finished, and we surrendered to that myth.”

The “Tale of Tales” star, who had her first child Valentina aged 41, went on to add that she no longer worries about turning 50, as it’s an age where women can be “productive”.

She said: “Fortunately, we’ve stopped believing that. Fifty is a great age where we can be very productive and happy and not feel limited by anything. I’ve realised I can still be beautiful and attractive as I approach 50. I feel very good about my life.”
