Salma Hayek and her daughter, Valentina, left LA yesterday. Salma and Valentina had arrived in California earlier this month to start preparations for award season. Salma was a presenter at this year's Golden Globes, where she wore a strapless black dress by Gucci Première. Salma had a bit of drama at the award show when the teleprompter unexpectedly broke while she was presenting with Paul Rudd. The two flubbed for a quick second, and Paul later explained they had no idea what to do. He said, "We didn't know, I didn't know they were doing two [categories] — we never had rehearsal." Salma won't be out of LA for too long — she'll return in February to attend the 2013 Spirit Awards, where she and Jeremy Renner will act as honorary cochairs.
Salma Hayek arrived in LA with her daughter, Valentina, yesterday. Salma let her naturally wavy hair down as she walked through the airport. Although Salma isn't up for any awards, she could be in town to start preparations for award season, which kicks off this week with the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday, Jan. 9. The actress is involved in one big event. Salma and Jeremy Renner were named honorary cochairs for the 2013 Spirit Awards, and the two actors will attend the Spirit Awards Nominee Brunch in LA on Saturday as well as the award show itself on Saturday, Feb. 23, the day before the Oscars. Regardless of what shows Salma attends, she is sure to wear a stunning designer gown, as her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, is the CEO of PPR, which owns red carpet favorites like Gucci, Balenciaga, and Saint Laurent.
Salma Hayek continued making the film festival rounds with a stop at Deauville over the weekend. On Saturday, she joined her husband, François-Henri Pinault, and their daughter, Valentina, for a special event — she unveiled a beach closet, a high honor at Deauville, with her name on it at the Promenade des Planches.
On Saturday night, Salma wore a Stella McCartney dress and Graziela earrings to join François-Henri and Valentina for the closing ceremony. Salma was honored with a tribute to her career. Accepting her honor, she spoke about her childhood dreams of acting and finding inspiration in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Salma said, "I realized in cinema you could have a river made out of chocolate, chew gum and then burp yourself back down to earth, take flowers made out of candy and eat them. I was always a bit sad, being raised Catholic, at the idea that we only got to live one life, so acting was my way of cheating this concept. As an actress, I can live many lives and I've been many different people. . . . Now I believe in reincarnation so I'm not as anxious."
Salma and François-Henri have been making the festival rounds, and were at Venice just last week. There, Salma and François-Henri toasted Blake Lively as the face of Gucci's Première fragrance and hosted the Gucci Award For Women in Cinema.
Salma Hayek welcomed her daughter Valentina Pinault to the set of Grown Ups 2 yesterday in Massachusetts. The girls took advantage of a break in the shooting schedule to get together for lunch. Valentina accompanied her mom to the site in Boston, and has been seen between scenes all week. Salma's been in her exercise instructor gear to reprise her part as Adam Sandler's beautiful wife in the sequel to 2010's Grown Ups. It's the latest role bringing Salma to the Northeast — she was also in Boston last Spring to shoot Here Comes the Boom alongside Kevin James, who's also in the Grown Ups franchise.

Such is the life of the adorable Valentina Pinault, daughter of Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault.
From attending art festivals in Italy to vacationing in St. Barts and working red carpet premieres with mom, Valentina's one busy little girl. Check out our look back at some of the little jet-setter's adventures in fashion — all around the globe!
Salma Hayek led her daughter Valentina through LAX yesterday. The 4-year-old carried a plastic camera and snapped at onlookers as they headed to their waiting car. Salma is gearing up for multiple movie releases, including Savages, in which she costars with Blake Lively, John Travolta, and Taylor Kitsch.
In addition to her big-screen career, Salma also has a cosmetics line called Nuance Salma Hayek. She talked about getting into the beauty business in a new issue of Marie Claire at Work and also touched on life with Valentina and husband Francois-Henri Pinault. Salma said of Francois-Henri, "He's the best thing that ever happened to me and my work. I was trying to figure out how to have a child on my own. I came to terms with saying, '[Love] might not happen, and I have to be OK with that.' Then someone came along whom I never would have pictured or thought I would have wanted; he was completely out of my box. Even though I was not looking, I was present and I was open. I am the luckiest person I know."
Salma Hayek was hand in hand with Valentina Pinault during their visit to the Seaquarium in Miami on Saturday. The mother and daughter headed to Florida for a premiere of Puss in Boots, which took place yesterday, and took advantage of some downtime in the state to stop by the aquarium. Salma even snapped some photos up close and personal with a dolphin during the day out. The trip South was the latest for Salma in what has already been a hectic Fall for the actress. Salma attended the Balenciaga show with her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, earlier this month as they took in Paris Fashion Week. Yesterday, Salma's focus was on film rather than fashion and she joined forces with her costar Antonio Banderas to attend a special screening of their animated movie on the Allure of the Seas cruise ship in Fort Lauderdale. Next up Antonio and Salma will bring Puss in Boots to San Francisco ahead of next week's LA debut.
Salma Hayek held Valentina in her lap as they were pushed through LAX in a wheelchair Saturday. Salma and Valentina were all smiles for the airport ride, which was apparently just for fun and not due to any actual injury. The mother-daughter duo have been jet-setting all month long with stops in Venice, NYC, and Toronto, where Salma premiered Americano at the TIFF. Salma had even more to celebrate recently since last Wednesday was Valentina's fourth birthday. The youngster is already following in her mom's footsteps as a mini fashion icon, though both ladies were a little more casual for their recent outing.
It was a jam-packed weekend for Salma Hayek and her tiny travel companion, daughter Valentina Pinault. The duo began their fun in NYC Friday afternoon with a stroll through Central Park then moved onto Toronto on Saturday, where Salma joined costar Mathieu Demy at the TIFF premiere of their feature film Americano. It's her second film festival in just two weeks, having traveled with François-Henri Pinault and Valentina to Venice for the Italian film competition. Yesterday morning the girls were once again on the go, as Salma and Valentina caught a flight out of Canada and landed a few hours later at LAX. Meanwhile, Salma's husband, François-Henri, is finally speaking out about the child support allegations made by his former girlfriend Linda Evangelista. François-Henri denies claims he's been delinquent in paying child support and in a recent interview tells French Elle "at every possible opportunity he has participated in my family life whether in France or the United States."
Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault shared a casual brunch with daughter Valentina in Venice on Sunday. The trio arrived in the Italian city on Salma's birthday last week, and they've since made a glamorous appearance at the Venice Film Festival. Salma attended the first-ever Gucci Award For Women in Cinema Soiree on the arm of her husband François-Henri, who is the head of the Gucci Group. Salma's just one of many lovely ladies — including Gwyneth Paltrow, Diane Kruger, and Madonna — that have hit the red carpet for the cinematic festivities
