SALMA HAYEK Admits To Being An Illegal Immigrant!

By on 8 December, 2010


Mexican beauty Salma Hayek is set to shock fans after reportedly confessing she entered the United States as an “illegal immigrant”. Gasp!

The ‘Fools Rush In star moved to Los Angeles in the 1990s to pursue her acting dreams, but admits she did not have the proper documents to make her move official

She reportedly tells Spain’s V Magazine:

“I was an illegal immigrant in the United States. It was for a small period of time, but I still did it.”

Hayek insists she also faced hardship as a Latina woman vying for mainstream roles, adding:

“I had to endure the worst time of all in terms of racial discrimination in Hollywood when I first started out. It was inconceivable to American directors and producers that a Mexican woman could have a lead role.”

Well…as a Latino, I salute you sister! 🙂

Not that I condone illegal entry into countries, but I admire people who stand up to racial discrimination and who are persistent in pursuing their dreams.
