As we age, our bodies change, and this can cause many people to lose some of the confidence they once had in their heyday. From wrinkles to grey hair, it can be hard to come to terms with the fact that we just don't look the way we used to.
One person who recently concerned her fans is 53-year-old actress Salma Hayek.
Last month, Hayek posted a throwback video to her dancing in a bra during a scene in the 2004 movie After The Sunset. She captioned the video, "Once upon a time... when I was skinny. Érase una vez ... cuando era flaca #TBT".Check it out below:
Her comments section blew up with messages of protest and support, and even After The Sunset co-star Pierce Brosnan reassured the actress that she's still a beautiful woman, writing: "Yer still a slip of lass".
But it would seem Hayek's body confidence woes were short-lived, as the star recently shared a racy snap of her backside in a see-through dress with her 12.7 million Instagram followers.
Hayek captioned the image: "Black Friday", and the picture literally just shows her shapely behind in a sheer black dress with lacy panels.
Once again, the actress' comments section erupted, as many fans praised the star for oozing such body confidence. "I want to be this confident in and fearless one day!" raved a commenter. "And just like that the internet is broken," wrote another. "I’d be REAL thankful for that," typed another.
Even Hollywood legend Samual L. Jackson - Salma's co-star and on-screen husband from The Hitman's Bodyguard - couldn't just scroll past without leaving a comment. Jackson joked: "You must be launching a new lotion line!!!! Stop It!!!!"
And let's not forget the stunning image she posted the day before her 53rd birthday:
Back in 2016, the actress opened up about how her body confidence has changed with age. Speaking candidly about her insecurities with Instyle UK, Hayek said:
"Well I am entering my 50s, so your body confidence isn’t that good. I think it depends on the day. For everybody, there's some days you say, 'This is it,' and you love it. Then there are days when you go, 'This cannot be it! Is this really it?' So I think it’s up and down all the time!"Check out this classic scene from From Dusk Till Dawn that helped shoot Selma Hayek to stardom:
In a recent interview with Holmes Place, Selma opened up about her personal feelings on aging, stating: "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."
