Salma Hayek: Curves should be fashionable

Salma Hayek thinks there is too much pressure to look like a "little boy" in fashion.

The 46-year-old actress, who is happily married to billionaire François-Henri Pinault, is known for her gorgeous Latino curves.

However, the star says the fashion world promotes an unhealthy body ideal.

"In recent years, we have had to fight against our genetic nature to look like little boys, to be socially accepted as beautiful," she explained.

"It used to be that a young girl couldn't wait to grow up and take the shape of a woman. Now our goal is regression, to look younger and like a child. There has not been enough diversity of boy shape in fashion."

The star has an enviable figure, but says she doesn't deny herself anything when it comes to food.

Salma also believes her varied diet is the key to her youthful looks.

"I am on the limit of chubbiness because I love my food and my wine," she revealed to Harper's Bazaar.

"It's not the best for fashion, but it's good for my mood. I am happy because I eat. I am 46; I will not have Botox. You know why [I don't need to do it]? Because I eat! I eat the fat, I eat the vegetables, I eat everything. If you exercise too much and you don't eat enough, it takes its toll on the skin. Everything starts ageing. If you don't eat carbs, you slow your metabolism down."
