Salma Hayek has had a pretty successful acting career, and it looks like her daughter wants to follow in her footsteps.
The 46-year-old actress recently said that her daughter, Valentina, is a natural actor and can’t wait to get in front of the camera.
Valentina is only 5-years-old, but mother Hayek says that she’s already a very talented actor.
Hayek said: “Valentina loves coming on the red carpet with me and loves standing having her picture taken. She loves to have her red carpet moment and is already a very talented actor.”
Valentina may only be 5-years-old but she’s already getting plenty of exposure to the movie business. Salma Hayek told US Magazine last year that she always brings her daughter to the set. Well, almost always. Hayek did say that she didn’t let Valentina join her on the set of Savages.
Hayek said: “She’s not going to watch this movie… Actually, this was the only movie that she was not on the set. I usually bring her on the set and she always likes to sit right next to the monitor and she bosses everyone around… I know Oliver Stone would have not let [Valentina] come in and say, ‘Excuse me, Oliver, let me just take over the set.’”
Do you think Valentina Hayek will follow in her mother’s footsteps?
Salma Hayek isn’t the only actress with a child yearning for the spotlight. Ireland Baldwin, the daughter of Kim Bassinger and Alec Baldwin, and Claudia Schiffer, and Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s daughter, are both trying to break into the modeling world.
