Mexican Academy Award nominated actress, director and producer, Salma Valgarma Hayek Jiménez de Pinault, has an estimated net worth of $85 million. Widely considered to be the first Mexican actress to become a Hollywood movie star since Dolores Del Rio, Salma Hayek is known for bringing a fiery presence and striking, dark-eyed beauty to the screen. A soap star in her native Mexico, Hayek risked her entire career to come to L.A., where she struggled to be taken seriously. Her discovery by director Robert Rodriguez, who cast her in his 1995 film Desperado, gave Hayek her breakthrough, and she subsequently gained a reputation as one of Hollywood’s sexiest and busiest actresses.
She was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actress for her role as Frida Kahlo in the film “Frida”. In 2003, Hayek produced and directed “The Maldonado Miracle”, a Showtime movie based on the book of the same name, winning her a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing in a Children/Youth/Family Special.
The daughter of a Spanish mother and Lebanese father, Hayek was born in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico, on September 2, 1966. Hayek is married to French billionaire and PPR CEO François-Henri Pinault, since April 25, 2009, together they have a daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault, born September 21, 2007.
