It may seem like Salma Hayek stepped out of the spotlight since daughter, Valentina, was born, but she’s been busy doing something a little more important: saving lives. As a spokesperson for the Pampers/UNICEF 1 Pack = 1 Vaccine campaign, Hayek raised awareness and money to eradicate tetanus, a fatal yet preventable disease killing newborns and mothers in developing countries. The campaign provided 30 million tetanus vaccines and started an accidental controversy when photos surfaced of Salma nursing an African baby on a goodwill trip. She also admitted on Oprah that breastfeeding is not, in fact, a magical elixir that melts away pounds and that slimming down is hard work. Looking at the curvy actress, we’d never know, but it’s still refreshing to hear an A-lister call it like it is.
