Salma Hayek Considered Her Post-Baby Body a Disfigurement

salma hayek

A big ole slice of GTFO goes out to Salma Hayek on this fine Sunday for saying that her body after giving birth – that’s right, the leftover weight from having CREATED AND GIVEN BIRTH TO A WHOLE NEW LIFE was, by her estimations, a disfigurement. Anyone who has a pair of working eyes (or even one, we’re not picky!) knows Salma Hayek is downright hot. Like all women, she put on a moderate amount of weight when pregnant with her now 5-year-old daughter Valentina back in 2007. That completely normal process left her feeling “completely disfigured”. Hoo boy. This is a nice follow up to her “at the limit of chubbiness” nonsense from a while back.

From Glam Belleza Latina (via DS): 

“I gained so much weight, I got an opportunity to see myself completely disfigured in many different ways – for a very good reason – and I don’t regret it for a second.

“That’s when I started appreciating my body. The things that I used to criticize, they were not that bad after all.”

Hayek added that she “shockingly” regained her pre-pregnancy shape, despite gaining 50lbs when expecting her daughter.

She added: “We’ve got to fight for our confidence every day in modern life because we live in a society that is very harsh to women.

“You have to be smart and successful and a good mother and beautiful and young and skinny forever.”

Oh man oh man. I really hope something got lost in translation there, because I just cannot with this, in any way and for so many different reasons. Sure, it must be tough to feel the changes in your body and be at a different weight than you’re used to, but here’s something cool: unlike an ACTUAL disfigurement, you can change this! Weight loss is possible and happens – as it clearly did for her. Second of all, to consider weight gain as something so horrendous is offensive to lots of people who may have medical conditions which cause them to gain weight, or are on medication which has weight gain as a side effect or even PEOPLE WHO JUST DON’T MIND NOT BEING STICKS.Then there’s the whole issue of the whole confidence thing and fighting for it. Here’s an idea, why not turn the fight outwards and make it against the system which tells you that you have to be all those unattainable things at once instead of looking inwards and trying so hard to be this person that you totally don’t need to be to still be beautiful, amazing, successful, etc? Lord almighty.

Salma, girl – no. Just no.

  • I hate to agree, but giving birth does in fact disfigure your body! But lucky for Selma she can afford to get surgery and a personal trainer, so yes she def needs to STFU.

    • OMFG. You’re not a woman. You’re a want to be Barbie. This is coming from a woman who looks like a Barbie and has fake boobs.

    • as Theodore implied I’m alarmed that someone can profit ($)9890in 1 month on the computer. have you seen this web site… Can99.c­om

  • You preach that women should feel comfortable with their bodies, yet you continually shame women who are skinny.


      • You referred to thin people as “sticks”, and your tone implied that it’s more acceptable to be larger than smaller.

        Body shaming is bad, fat or skinny.

  • People like Selma (who gained 50lbs) and that awful Jessica Simpson (who gained about a ton or so) and Kardashian (who looked like a Sumo wrestler drag queen) probably did look disfigured after having their babies. On the other hand, we have Halle Berry and Megan Fox, and my mom (who ate like her damn doctor told her to and gained 25 lbs.) didn’t look disfigured after their babies came. So, what have we learned, class? It’s a lot easier and faster to lose 25 lbs. than it is to lose 50lbs and up. I sure am good at math.

  • until I looked at the paycheck of $7938, I have faith …that…my sister woz like truley erning money parttime on their apple labtop.. there aunts neighbour has been doing this 4 only and recently took care of the debts on their place and bought a brand new Renault 4. read more at,

  • She obviously has some psychological issues around having to be perfect and needing approval. That’s more of a disfigurement than a motherly body following the birth of a child. She really showed her scars and imperfections by opening her mouth.

  • How is this comment so shocking that you have to oppose it so vehemently? I’ve noticed that since you’ve been writing for Evil Beet, your opinion on almost everything tends to be super negative without warrant. Harmless comments make you throw your hands up and trash whoever the quote was from. Calm down, lady.

  • Salma was highly criticized for being so big during
    her pregnancy now that she open and share her
    feelings about how she felt during that time we are
    crucifying and attacking her again.
    Its true overeating has to do with our self-stem but
    no eating has to do with self-stem and acceptance too.
    Bottom line WE the WOMEN should support each other
    instead being fighting like cats.


    • Thanks Tiana. Your comment should be posted on all of
      the websites that attacked Salma for using the
      word disfigurement. What you wrote makes sense and
      I believe that it is what Salma was trying to say.

  • Reading with understanding sure is complex for many. She didn’t mean what she said how any of you take it, what she was trying to say which has been lost here is that like many of us females she was caught up on her image before her pregnancy. There were things physically she did not like. However once she got pregnant and experienced the disfigurement…the changes your body undergoes during the 9 months are disfiguring…she has grown to appreciate her body more. How many women complain about having a big belly when actually there is nothing there to moan about well until you have a pregnant belly many women do not appreciate that fact. Please put her statement into context

  • If you think Anita`s story is incredible…, 3 weaks-ago my mom also brought home $6950 workin eighteen hours a week from there house and their classmate’s sister-in-law`s neighbour was doing this for eight months and earned more than $6950 parttime On their laptop. apply the information on this page, wwwBOW6COM
