Salma Hayek discusses ‘marrying husband for his money’


Salma Hayek recently addressed rumors surrounding her marriage to François-Henri Pinault on the Armchair Expert podcast.

Pinault, who is the CEO of luxury fashion group Kering and president of holding company Groupe Artémis, has been married to Hayek for 15 years.

During the podcast, co-host Dax Shepard commented on Pinault’s wealth and asked Hayek about her marriage.

Hayek responded by saying, “You know the thing is that in pictures you cannot begin to guess the magic in him. He’s made me become a much better person, and grow in such a good, healthy way.”

She continued, “And, you know, when I married him, everybody said, ‘Oh, it’s an arranged marriage, she married him for the money.’ I’m like, ‘Yeah, whatever, bitch. Think what you want.'”

“Fifteen years together, and we are strong in love. And I don’t even get offended, I’m like, ‘Yeah, whatever.'”


Hayek went on to discuss the discrimination that wealthy men often face, saying, “There is a discrimination also to rich men.”

“Immediately you think because somebody’s rich, [they] might not be a good person, might be somebody materialistic, might be somebody that doesn’t have values, might be somebody that is even stupid or that doesn’t deserve it [or] that in order to have a lot of money, you did it the wrong way, there is all this preconceptions and I heard them, by the way.”

The actress then praised her husband’s character, saying, “My guy, finished work, no matter how hard it was — and trust me he has a lot of responsibilities — big smile on his face, happy to be home, happy to see me and the kids, make us laugh.”

“We go on vacation, he completely shuts off, he’s in the moment. It’s not just an insult to me. I’m not the one being judged only.

“They cannot begin to imagine what a joy that human being is.”

Hayek and Pinault got married on Valentine’s Day in 2009 in Paris and have a daughter named Valentina, who is 12 years old.

Hayek, who is 54, described Pinault as a “fun, generous, nice warm guy” and added that he is “super sexy too.”

Shepard, who had previously not been familiar with Pinault, commented on the wealth of Hayek’s husband, to which Hayek responded by saying, “Yeah, whatever, b*tch. Think what you want.”

Hayek emphasized that they have been together for 15 years and are “strong in love.”
