CONCERNED ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

The actress shared that she was concerned about the kind of world she was leaving for her children and grandchildren. She then called for people to stand with her to fight against climate change.

Hayek urged her followers to make a “pinky promise” to their children that they would do their best for the environment. She encouraged her fans to vote on November 3, 2020, to make a difference.

GETTING SUPPORT FROM OTHER STARS

The star also tagged singer Jennifer Lopez and actress Eva Mendes. The “Grown Ups” actress shares Valentina, 12, with her husband and businessman François-Henri Pinault.

In recent weeks, the family went on vacation to Greece. Hayek dazzled her fans when she shared several photos from their holiday, including an image where she was seen in her bikini while having some coffee at the stunning destination.

STAYING OUT OF THE SPOTLIGHT

The star rarely shares pictures of her daughter and prefers to keep her out of the spotlight. However, once in a while the pre-teen will appear in public during special occasions like fashion week.

Her father happens to be the CEO and chairman of Kering and he’s also the President of Groupe Artémis. His connections in the fashion world meant the little girl gets to dress up in luxury brands like Gucci.

STAYING COOL

Two years ago, Hayek proved that she was every bit as cool as her husband when she did something special for her daughter. At the Met Ball that year, the actress found Gigi Hadid and pleaded with her to record a video message for her daughters.
