Salma HayekSalma Hayek

Salma Hayek was born on September 2, 1966, at Coatzacoalcos, Mexico. Her parents were a Lebanese-Mexican businessman and an opera-singer.
At 24 year she approached Hollywood with naïve enthusiasm, and quickly learned that Latin actresses were, if at all, typecast as the mistress maid or local prostitute. By late 1992, Hayek had landed only bit parts. The 21st Century started out quietly around Salma as she was preparing to produce and star in her dream role, that of Frida Kahlo. The picture was a hit and was nominated for six Oscars, including best actress for Hayek, who became the first Latin actress to be nominated in the category.
