Salma Hayek: 1968(?)—: Actress Biography
Earned Novela Award In Mexico, Fought To End Typecasting, Fully Committed To Frida
Critics have hailed actress Salma Hayek for the forcefulness of her on-screen portrayals made during a relatively short time since her career began in the early 1990s. The Mexican-born actress has also become known for her sultry good looks. "Half peasant, half bombshell, Hayek is the raw stuff of daydreams, a mythical seductress with a figure so sublime it could make you bite a rock," enthused Interview writer Michael Atkinson. Hayek has also campaigned both behind the scenes and in the press to break down Hollywood barriers for Latino actors, and to revive a once-moribund Mexican film industry. Her activism prompted Time International to deem Hayek "a whirlwind moving through a macho industry, changing the way audiences view Mexico on both sides of the border."
