While talking to V Magazine Spain, Salma Hayek reveals that she was once an illegal immigrant to the United States.

She said:

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

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.”

She sure showed them!

    how did she get citizenship then?



  2. 2

    I know this. She used to clean my toilets, then I'd clean hers (IF you know what I mean!?)!



  3. 3

    And she's not anymore. Who cares?



  4. 4

    OHH just STFU, she looks more like a 14 yr old Aphgan boy with a unibrow than a Mexican. fcukin race baiting schill.



  5. 5

    I'll tell you what the problem is, she should have never been caught outside with those aviator glasses, and what is that a dress? That looks horrible.



  6. 6

    Wait what ?

    TALENT+BEAUTY=GREEN CARD……USA LOVES SALMA……YAY!!!!



  8. 8

    Well this oughtta get the racists going.

    I am having a hard time understanding how she could possibly claim to have endured the worst time in Hollywood history in terms of racism. Tell that to hattie McDaniels. Tell that to Josephine Baker or Ruby Dee. Salma Hayek is an ignorant sack of self victimized stupidity. I wish she would go back to whatever country he came here illegally from because she clearly does not know the history of the country she adopted. Latinos have it EASY. We cater everything to them! (You dont see chinese posted on every street corner do you? Oh but its spanish…lets cater to them!) Fucking idiot bitch. go to hell.

    YEAH, YOU COULDN'T GET A ROLE BECAUSE YOU WERE HISPANIC… NOT BECAUSE YOU WERE AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT OR ANYTHING….?

    DON'T LIKE IT? GO HOME!



  11. 11

    LOL so ironic!

    Now she's an A-lister and married to one of the most richest and powerful men of the world!



  12. 12

    why is she wearing that nasty dress with the darts up her boobies????



  13. 13

    How nice of that Gold-Digger to STEAL THE AMERICAN DREAM!

    Re: losangelesboy – Wrong, boy! The USA does not love Salma. We don't like illegals. We don't like bad actresses. And we don't say USA. We say America. America hates illegals and now we know that we hate Salma.

    Illegal is illegal. Why defend her?



  16. 16

    Boo hoo her. I'd be more impressed if she continued to explain how she then became a legal US citizen. so others could learn and benefit from how she resolved her illegal situation. As for the discrimination she faced, and I assume it was after she became a legal citizen that someone could legally hire - she had easy compared to the way Hollywood was from the 1930s through the 1960s with most minorities. And I doubt she had to eat in a seperate dining area, stay in a seperate hotel, use a different bathroom, etc. If it was so bad, she should have pursued Univision.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Who's "we"? You are no one to speak on my behalf.
    BTW, USA is the correct term. America is a continent, just like South America. Even Central America can call themselves an Americans. Dipsh!t! We are ALL Americans. So go find a new identity.



  19. 19

    I've just lost all respect for her. I didnt know she was a criminal

    Re: PreTTy*n*PinK – Hey, Stalker! You're right. Salma Hayek is America's sweetheart. Oops, meant to say USA's sweetheart. When was the last time you told your son that illegally entering a country is no problemo?



  21. 21

    she didn't get roles because she can act. illegal or not, she's a tool.



  22. 22

    Ship her illegal a$$ back to Mexico.



  23. 23

    I am against illegal immigration. I feel as though she should spend the same time she was here illegally in jail. Then she can do what she wants.



  24. 24

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Oh please, me stalk you, you are dreaming. You kiss Bristol and Sarah Palin's ass so much I wouldn't be surprised if you stalk those morons.



  25. 25

    Oh please u ppl are so self righteous, u act like she committed a crime against humanity. Don't pretend u haven't broken the law in more than on way



  26. 26

    The hatred and venom on this site from posters is getting really sickening!!!



  27. 27

    I want to motorboat Eldridge Cleaver!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Go back to schooll!!! When Columbus discovered AMERICA he arrived at The Bahamas not the Jersey Shore or Miami, There are 7 continents in the planet and one of the is America.



  29. 29

    oh, she's just putting up a big front



  30. 30

    Re: Pegado1970 – How God damned dumb are you? You're lecturing me on geography and history and you don't even know there are 2 American continents? Fucking idiot! There isn't one continent called America as your dumb ass asserts. There is a continent called South America and a continent called North America. Also, why even bring up Columbus? The Taino people living on San Salvador "discovered" that island before Columbus. Columbus was nothing special. People had been "discovering" the Americas before him and if he didn't, some other Euro scumbag woulda stumbled upon the New World.

    Re: tallone2 – She probably did what all of the other successful actors and actresses did to succeed in Hollywood-F–cked her way to the top and sold their soul to the highest b

    Re: julietcast – What is so disgusting and repulsive about this woman is the fact that she made millions as a movie star in the good old U.S.A. and at the very first chance she gets she slams the U.S.A. stating we are racists!! Why doesn't she criticize the Hell Hole she came from called Mexico-the place where innocent people are being beheaded and killed by the thousands! I am so sick of these foreign movie stars using our country to make their millions and then insult all US. citizens by calling us a bunch of racists, only because we want people to abide by our laws.

    Re: Angelo MRe: AynRandy – I agree, ppl here seem to be so miserable and bitter about everything they read



  34. 34

    SUCH B.S.!!!! What, for all of 24 hours? Her visa expired and she went back to Mexico and got it renewed! Such drivvle, she speaks. No wonder I don't like her.



  35. 35

    she is a freakin liar!!
    her family hes super rich since like forever, my mom knows her family and they have always been loaded, obviously her daddy paid for a nice apartment in the us for her, and obviously she enter the country legally with a tourist visa, i cant believe how she is so stupid to lie like this and perpetrate even more the stereotype that all mexicans or latins in the US are illegal fuck her



  36. 36

    Re: MVPnis – the idiot is a liar prolly her dad bought her a student visa or something so she could live in the us n start off acting, her family is well off, she is just doing this to get publicity shes an idiot, i seriously doubt her lebanese family will let her pass miseries since they are loaded and own lots of business in the city shes from , so obviously this is a big fat lie
