Salma Hayek Talks About Being Super-Rich and Privileged

The Beatles may think money can't buy you love, but these boys clearly never had a sit-down with Salma Hayek, who could potentially write a book on marrying rich. The actress married Francois-Henri Pinault in February 2009, and he's reportedly worth $11.5 billion. In an interview with the September issue of Allure magazine, the Mexican beauty discusses how she doesn't think she should apologize for the super-luxe, globe-trotting life she gets to lead, saying "I never understood the point of being privileged if you don't get to have the privileges." How can you argue with sound logic like that? If you got it, flaunt it, right?

The filthy rich couple share a daughter, Valentina, who turns 4 next month. Hayek believes in all the things normal parents do: spending time with your child, smothering them with love and affection, showering them with 5-star vacations and expensive cuisine, etc. The Puss in Boots star doesn't understand why parents don't give in to their child's every demand if they are able to afford it, explaining "Like, people who won't take their kids to an expensive restaurant, or won't travel with them, or make them pay for everything at a really young age. I think it's important that kids have responsibilities and understand the value of things, but I think it's great I get to travel the world with my daughter." Well yeah, but there's traveling to McDonalds and there's traveling to Europe -- she's going to have just as much fun either way at the age of 4. It's been reported that the French version of Daddy Warbucks spends $50,000 per month, via trust, on his daughter, on top of lavish vacations and gifts. This little girl is going to give Suri Cruise a run for her money.

But even though Salma enjoys the private jets, extravagant trips, and expensive clothes there is one indulgence she claims she's never given into: plastic surgery or other cosmetic procedures. She says, "I've never had anything done on my face...I've never had dermabrasion or peels or injections of any kind, nothing." Well that's reassuring...and here I was worried gluttony was going to be a problem for your family, but it's nice to know you have such self restraint.
