The bombshell actress may have just turned 50, but she's so devastatingly beautiful that she looks like she's just turned 30. It's been years since the Mexican-American actress wowed us in the 1996 film "From Dusk Till Dawn" as the bodacious snake-charming stripper and she's still got what it takes to knock our socks off. Her sultry good looks are simply ageless. But it's not all about looks and talent. There's so much more than meets the eye when it comes to this amazing actress, like the fact that she speaks Spanish, English, Portuguese, and Arabic or that watching "Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory" as a child inspired her to become an actress, and so much more.
The dark-eyed actress is one fiery presence both on and off screen.
She’s certainly come along way since being born in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico back in September 2, 1966.
It's no wonder that her looks ensue a sense of serenity.
Her name in Arabic stands for peace and calm.
You might say that she owes her grandmother for her lovely brows and great hair.
As a child, grams would shave her head and eyebrows regularly because she believed this would make her hair grow darker, thicker and glossier.
Salma might seem tranquil but she's got a bit of a rebel in her.
When she was 12 years old, she was expelled from the Louisiana boarding school she was attending.
She majored in International Relations at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City.
But she quit to pursue her true ambition of becoming an actress.
