salma-hayek-instyle-june-2010-375x600In a new interview with V magazine, Salma Hayek reveals that she was in the US illegally after her visa expired and she didn’t leave.

She said:

“I was an illegal immigrant in the United States. It was for a small period of time, but I still did it. I had to endure the worst time of all in terms of racial discrimination in Hollywood when I first started out. It was inconceivable to American directors and producers that a Mexican woman could have a lead role.”

Amazing how much she has accomplished. We love our Salma for speaking so frankly about it. Inspirational!
