Salma Hayek Speaks About Being Pregnant, Mexican

by at .

Recently engaged and pregnant Salma Hayek spoke to Marie Claire about her struggles as a Latina in Hollywood, and the unfair pressures women face to have children.

Apparently, they don't feel the same pressure to get married before having said children. Looking at you, François-Henri Pinault, you rich bastard.

"Motherhood is not for everyone â€" it is for me... but society thinks if you don't have children, you've failed as a woman," said Salma Hayek. 

"You've got to be beautiful, smart, skinny, tall, rich, successful at your job, married to the right guy â€" and have beautiful children."

Well, at least Britney Spears has the children part down.

Marie Claire hits newsstands on April 17. Here's a quick glance at the rest of the thoughtful interview with the lovely Ugly Betty star:

On being typecast in certain roles because she's Mexican:

"I started out in Hollywood at the same time as Jennifer Lopez. Before us, Latinas only had roles that were part of the backdrop, or the maid or the prostitute. We changed that."

THG NOTE: Jennifer Lopez has played a maid on the big screen.

SECOND THG NOTE: Jennifer Lopez also sucks. Why don't you drop some better Latina actress names, Salma? How about America Ferrera?

On issues with her appearance:

"Especially when I have to appear in public, and there are cameras... the stress is sensational. Sometimes I don't like the dress â€" the way it fits, the way I look. And there are a million people looking at me, telling me to smile, but I don't feel like smiling. But then I have to keep everything in perspective."

Here's our perspective: When Salma Hayek becomes a mom, she'll immediately become an A-List MILF, along the lines of Demi Moore or Christie Brinkley.
