Los Angeles,March 30: Actress Salma Hayek hates exercise. She credits her slim figure in her 2014 film “Everly” to running around after her seven-year-old daughter Valentina.
“I don’t like to work out, but I’ve tried to get into the best shape I’ve ever been in. When you’re running around looking after your daughter you’re also doing a lot of work so I was able to manage pretty well on the set,” Total Film magazine quoted the 48-year-old as saying, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Hayek, who played the titular character in the film, loves playing a “tough woman”, and hopes the movie inspires people to find the strength they need to get out of “abusive” situations.
“You also get a kick out of playing a really tough woman. Women are very tough even though we often don’t show it,” she said.
“This kind of story is inspiring for anyone who has felt frustrated or dominated and doesn’t know how to escape an abusive situation,” she added.
