Salma Hayek looks stunning on the cover of Redbook magazine, pulling off a body-hugging purple dress and minimal makeup.
Inside the issue, she dishes on choosing the role in “Puss In Boots” for her daughter: “I liked the idea of doing a movie that Valentina could see, since there are many I’ve done that she is too young to see, and a few I’d probably never want her to. I’m a watchdog when it comes to what she can and cannot see.”
Has motherhood changed her acting? Salma assures: “I can be the devil if I need to, because after all, I’m an actress.'”
On the matter of finances, Hayek has taken some heat recently, but says, “I work hard, I make my own living and I love it. I like having financial independence. I don’t ever want to have to depend on anyone completely. But when I have troubles sometimes, its nice to have someone there to help.”
