Salma Hayek

Born: 9/2/1966
Birthplace: Coatzacoalcos, Mexico

Actress who left a blooming career in her native Mexico to conquer Hollywood, and has become perhaps the best-known Mexican-American performer since Dolores Del Rio. Hayek has had romantic roles opposite several leading men, including Antonio Banderas in Desperado (1995) and George Clooney in the otherwise disappointing From Dusk 'Til Dawn (1996). Hayek got an Oscar nomination for her portrayal of artist Frida Kahlo in Frida (2000). In 2006's Lonely Hearts, she plays real-life murderer Martha Beck, the female half of the “Lonely Hearts Killers” duo.
