Salma Hayek feared missing out on marriage

Salma Hayek believes positive thinking helped her achieve all her personal goals.

The actress wed billionaire François-Henri Pinault when she was in her forties and together they have daughter Valentina.

Although the 46-year-old star is blissfully happy now, she didn't always have such a positive outlook on life.

"There was a time in my late thirties when I felt I wasn't in the best shape physically, that I wasn't finding any good roles, and that I hadn't married or had children," she admitted to the British edition of OK! magazine.

"But then I started think more positively and then I met my future husband!"

Salma and François-Henri welcomed Valentina into the world in 2007 and prior to that the actress was more interested in focusing on her career.

Now she has a family, she realises what she was missing before.

"There's nothing more beautiful in life than your family," she gushed.

"I waited a long time to find that in my life and now that I have it, I realise how important and fulfilling it is for me."

While her family comes first, Salma is still making time for acting and appears in Grown Ups 2 alongside Adam Sandler.

The stunning brunette loved working with the funny man.

"It's a really good atmosphere to be on the set with Adam," she smiled.

"He's such a gentleman and a pleasure to work with."
