Salma Hayek in Allure September 2011 Cover

Salma Hayek graces the September 2011 issue of Allure magazine. In the Allure interview, Salma talks about getting teased as a child, her daughter, her beauty line and her famous figure.

On Getting Teased When She Was a Child: "I got teased because I was too short, or I was too brown. You would think in Mexico that would be something normal, but I did get teased."

On Her Daughter: "I never understood the point of being privileged if you don't get to have the privileges. Like, people who won't take their kids to an expensive restaurant, or won't travel with them, or make them pay for everything at a really young age. I think it's important that kids have responsibilities and understand the value of things, but I think it's great that my daughter gets to travel the world."

On Her Beauty Line: "I'm [creating this line] with the philosophy that within you there is beauty, and you have to learn how to find it and enhance it in a natural way.... One thing that is exciting about being a woman is that you can rediscover your beauty over and over and over."

On Whether Any Part of Her Body Looked Better 10 Years Ago: "My boobs. They're not bad, by the way. I'm not complaining about them."
