Salma Hayek looked beautiful and bright with her baby bump while strolling through Hollywood this weekend. Even though Salma isn't acting while pregnant that doesn't mean she's putting her career on hold. Salma, the producer, is one of the 50 women who will be featured in Variety's Women’s Impact Report. Other leading ladies who were movers and shakers in the industry this year include Angelina, Tina Fey and J.K. Rowling. In the special issue, Salma talks about what her company, Ventanazul, means to her and what she hopes to achieve as a producer. Here are highlights:
- "I think we are the only company right now whose sole mission is to specialize in two things: 1) appealing to the Latin market and 2) taking a Latin story or a Latin talent and appealing to the global market."
- "Instead of making one good movie, I'm really thinking of a brand. I want the Latin people to be proud of the projects that come out of it and the rest of the world to be excited to see our next thing."
- "I do dream hard, but I'm very flexible. I think it's the only way to be a true visionary. ... I don't think I'm going to fail, but if I do, the next person in the line will go a little bit further because I took the chance."
It's inspiring to see how dedicated and ambitious Salma is, even as she does all this pregnant. We can't wait to see how her projects turn out, even if we're just slightly more excited for the first glimpse of her bundle of joy this winter.
