Salma Hayek enjoys the benefits of being ‘privileged’

Salma makes no excuses for enjoying her money

While there are many Hollywood celebrities that seem to shy away from talking about how incredibly rich they are and how they like to take baths in their money, Salma Hayek is not one of those people.

In February 2009, Salma married French billionaire, Francois-Henri Pinault and while Salma wasn’t exactly poor before she married the billionaire, she now has more money than any average person would know what to do with.

The actress makes no apologies for enjoying her luxurious life and doesn’t understand why people with privilege don’t always take advantage of those opportunities.  Salma said;

“I never understood the point of being privileged if you don’t get to have the privileges.  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.”

Reports say that Pinault spends $50,000 per month, through trust, on his daughter and that doesn’t include the incredible vacations and gifts.

While Salma has no problem dishing out money on private jets, yachts and vacations, the one thing she isn’t spending her cash on is cosmetic procedures.  She explains;

“I’ve never had anything done on my face. I’ve never had dermabrasion or peels or injections of any kind, nothing.”
