Salma Hayek: My breasts continue to grow'significantly,' but they are natural.
When life provides you with melons, you may find yourself explaining to the public that they are genuine.
Salma Hayek has stated on the record that her breasts are indeed real — but she understands why fans may believe otherwise.
“Many people assumed I had breast augmentation. I have no sympathy for them! My boobs were more slender! So was the rest of my body," Jada Pinkett Smith, 54, said Wednesday on "Red Table Talk," the Facebook Watch series she co-hosts with her daughter, Willow Smith, and mother, Adrienne Banfield-Norris.
Her growth, on the other hand, is entirely natural. Hayek explained that it occurred frequently during significant life transitions such as pregnancy, menopause, and periods of weight gain.
“For some women, they shrink in size. However, some women gain weight and their boobs grow, while others gain weight and their boobs grow and don't go back down, and then grow again during menopause,” she explained. “I am one of those women who has it happen in every step! When I gain weight, become pregnant, or enter menopause.”
While her breasts "continued to grow," she admitted it's been a pain.
“Numerous, numerous sizes. And my back has been really hurting as a result,” she explained. “And not many people discuss this.”
While menopause's hot flashes and emotional intensity are frequently discussed, Hayek noted that the breast growth surprised her.
“I'll tell you something they don't tell you: the boobs grow — a lot,” said Hayek, who recently announced an HBO Max documentary about menopausal boobs.
However, growing older has taught the entertainer that stereotypes about women dying at a certain age are a wholly destructive narrative.
“Women have no expiration dates. That must be eliminated. Because at any age, you can kick ass. You can be independent at any age, dream at any age, and be romantic at any age,” she explained. “We have a right to be loved for who we are in this moment. We are not here solely to produce children, nor are we here solely to baby the men. We are not simply here to service everything and everyone in our immediate vicinity.”
