Salma Hayek, one of the most beautiful and talented actresses, has a secret set of skills! The 49-year-old shared a photo on Instagram revealing her fondness for nude sketching. Captioning the photo, Hayek wrote, “Nude sketching at @christopherkane #frieze party. Let’s see how long does it take you to find me or the nude model [sic].”
Her challenge was more of a humorous jab at men, who would probably notice the nude model before her. A fan got the message and wrote, “It wasn’t a puzzle, guys. She was teasing you regarding who you’d see first.” And another simply said, “Frida.”
This was in reference to Hayek’s 2002 film Frida, based on the life of fellow Mexican and painter, Frida Kahlo. Kahlo lived in the early 1900s and was an important person in the surrealist movement that changed the history of art. Hayek played the title lead and also produced the film, but it wasn’t her first venture into art, as she previously held a display in Texas back in 2006 of paintings done by artists George Yepes and Robert Rodriguez.
Hayek has also recently been in the news after her Frida co-star, Alfred Molina, claimed that her success was limited because she was not “white and male.” He said that if that had been the case, she would be an even bigger name than Harvey Weinstein today, as it is her creativity and business mind that set her apart from so many other female stars.
Despite the possible setbacks, Hayek’s Hollywood career is as hot as ever. The actress already has at least two films slated for a 2016 release.
