The 48-year-old Mexican actress wil be seen in a spate of movies including ‘The Prophet,’ ‘Everly,’ and ‘The Tale of Tales.’ But for now she’s a hit on the cover of Allure and in the inside pages, as the Internet and social media marvel at her youthfulness that does not come from cosmetic surgery or the usual array of fillers and gels.

In one of the inside photos she is seen very tastefully covering her top with her hands in one of the photos. In her own words, she says, “It doesn’t look vulgar.”

Yes, she’s a hit, and many who don’t normally follow fashion magazines are taking notice. Soon to turn 49, the Mexican-born actress muses on many subjects including aging, as actresses are compelled to do when publications and their readers have such expectations.

She’s famously avoided plastic surgery. Same goes for Botox of which she told Allure, “When I was young, they tried to sell me on the idea: If you do it now, then you won’t get the wrinkles.’ And thank God I didn’t do that.”

She is also the wife of a billionaire, the 53-year-old Francois-Henri Pinault, CEO of Kering. The parent company may not be a household name, but most of its brands are — Gucci and Louis Vuitton as luxurious examples. The couple has a daughter who’s now seven years old.

Hayek opened up about her marriage, and spoke glowingly of her husband. She said, ‘I wish I knew [when I was younger] that I was going to fall crazy in love with the perfect man. I was so worried, and I dated some people I shouldn’t have dated.”

She went on to say, You get desperate, and you start seeing wonderful things in, like, the wrong guys. I also found some pretty good guys. But I wish I could say to myself: “Hey, chill out. You’re going to get a great husband that’s going to adore you,”‘ she added: ‘I would have saved myself a lot of personal drama.’
