Salma Hayek is working hard to lose the weight she gained for her big movie.
Hayek, 54, spent the tail end of 2020 putting on weight for her role in the highly-anticipated Ridley Scott film House of Gucci.
"It was not even the end of the holiday yet, and I was like, 'Okay, bring me kaftans!'" she joked during an interview with InStyle.https://www.instagram.com/p/CP3QX65t8Lu/

It wasn't long before she realised it'd be difficult to lose the extra kilos.
"I've lost very little. You go, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa.' You gain it so fast, but it takes so long to lose it," she said.
In the film, Hayek plays a clairvoyant who was convicted for helping Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga) orchestrate the 1995 assassination of her ex-husband Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver). It's slated for release in November this year.
The actress said she's determined to lose the weight for health reasons, but also because it's "what's expected for a woman who people consider good-looking."

"As you get older, you're expected not to age," she said. Despite the "pressure and judgement" she puts on herself, she's proud of what she's achieved.
"I don't think I am some hot tamale, but I know that for my age, for the lifestyle that I lived, I'm not doing too badly," she said. "And I attribute all of this to meditation."
Last month, Hayek opened up about recovering from a near-fatal battle with COVID-19.
"My doctor begged me to go to the hospital because it was so bad," she told Variety. "I said, 'No, thank you. I'd rather die at home.'"
Hayek got married to billionaire François-Henri Pinault in 2009. The couple share a 13-year-old daughter Valentina.
