You may need a roadmap for these curves!

Salma Hayek has been an actress by profession for over 25 years, but still doesn’t look a day over 25. On the heels of the release of her newest film, Here Comes the Boom, the Mexican native landed her first ever cover of Harper’s and is bringing the va-va-voom with this feature shot by Paola Kudacki.

While the actress looks admirably amazing on the cover, in her corresponding article she talks about the issues that Hollywood has with body image and aging. In so many words, Salma pretty much makes it clear that she doesn’t give a f*ck how anyone feels about her body.

Check out some excerpts from the interview below.

On Hollywood’s unforgiving nature towards aging ladies:

“The worst thing you can be in Hollywood is a woman and over 40. On top of that, I have an accent, am dyslexic, short and chubby. You name it I have it, but I am here. I must be the luckiest girl in the world to be working.”

On not getting caught up in the dieting craze:

“I am on the limit of chubbiness because I love my food and my wine. It’s not the best for fashion, but it’s good for my mood. I am happy because I eat. I am 46; I will not have Botox. You know why [I don’t need to do it]? Because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetables, I eat everything. If you exercise too much and you don’t eat enough, it takes its toll on the skin. Everything starts ageing. If you don’t eat carbs, you slow your metabolism down. And you know what? You look miserable. The truth is I just don’t have the drive to be the prettiest and the thinnest. I can be happy for other people for their beauty. Learn to be happy for others and you can never run out of happiness.”

On Madonna still showing so much skin in her fifties:

“Do I envy Madonna’s body? Yes. Do I thank God that she has it? Yes! If you’re fifty something and you look like Madonna, and you put a lifetime’s work in the way you look, then flash it to the world!”

Hear that lady? Indulge in good things, eat carbs anand be happy!
