Salma Hayek (56) looks back on an eventful day in her life. It’s now almost 14 years since the actress married French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault (60) on Valentine’s Day. Apparently, the couple is still very much in love today, because the couple keeps flirting with each other at events. But her big day went differently than you might think: Salma now revealed that she actually had no say in the marriage to Francois.
In an interview with Glamor Magazine, the 57-year-old made this big revelation and looked back on her big day. “I didn’t even know that day that I was going to get married. It was a surprise,” she began to share. So her parents and her brother had “allied” against her and brought her to the appointment at the registry office without warning. The reason for the secrecy was a great fear of the Magic Mike 3 actress: “I had a phobia of this whole marriage story,” revealed Salma.
A few months after the civil wedding, Francois and she celebrated their love again – this time with a big party in Venice. Numerous celebrities, including Penelope Cruz (48) and Stella McCartney (51), were invited to the second wedding celebration.
