Salma Hayek is dropping jaws in a bold stringy swimsuit as she rings in her 55th birthday. The actress, who made headlines earlier this year for saying she'd proud to be pulling her own stunts at 54, is now one year older, but it's a fine wine deal for the "Frida" star, who is fresh from marking her special day on Instagram.

Posting for her 18.6 million followers on Thursday, the MCU star stunned posing in a blue swimsuit from ocean waters - see why fans are going wild below.

It's Her Birthday

Scroll for the photo. Hayek had done similar two years ago as she proudly turned 53 while in a turquoise bikini. This look showed a little less skin, but Salma still won 'em over as she gazed confidently ahead, knee-deep in water, and backed by a lush, palm-fringed beach.

The Mexican bombshell, all makeup-free glow and looking flawless, wore a halterneck and string-tied blue one-piece, one showing off her famous hourglass figure and the muscle she harnesses. "Happy 55th birthday to me," the mom of one opened.

"The Eternals" actress, who will feature alongside Angelina Jolie in the much-anticipated and 2022-released superhero movie, added: "Looking forward to new adventures #grateful," also offering her usual Spanish translation.

Swimwear posts from Salma Hayek do not go unnoticed. This one racked up over 600,000 likes in four hours, also bringing in a like from 58-year-old Bravo star Lisa Rinna. Actor Pierce Brosnan sent his best, writing: "Happy birthday Salma," with the sentiment also echoed by thousands of fans. More photos after the snap.

Feels 'Lucky'

Hayek was 50 when she opened up to British health chain Holmes Place, revealing she feels blessed over what she has - including billionaire husband François-Henri Pinault whom she married in 2009.

"Well, I feel very lucky," she said. "I think I have achieved a lot of things at my age. I think I am very, very, lucky because I found love. You know, I think this is number one, the greatest achievement is that I found a fantastic partner to share my life with that I am still in love with, and that supports me and inspires me to grow."

'Comfortable In My Own Skin'

Hayek, who made 2020 headlines for clapping back and denying she's had Botox, is also embracing her age - gray hairs and all. The Latina added:

"I don’t dye [my hair] because I am curious to see how I am going to look with this. I am sure in the next movie they will say sorry you will have to dye it but I am enjoying watching them come in. I don’t have any Botox. Maybe later I will change my mind but for now, I am comfortable being fifty. I am comfortable in my own skin."
