Who knew this actress was so talented?
In an impressive throwback pic, a gorgeous brunette beauty divulged her surprising background as an Olympic bound child gymnast.
Seriously, the #TBT is quite amazing! We can’t imagine the dedication it must have taken to achieve that pose!
So, who was this young athlete in training?
I wish I could still do that but at least I have proof that once upon a time I was a #gymnast #ludscanov #gym #tbtA photo posted by Salma Hayek Pinault (@salmahayek) on Nov 12, 2015 at 12:45pm PST
Surprise! It’s the lovely Salma Hayek!
According to the stunner, she was a dedicated gymnast while growing up in Mexico. Around age 8, the rising star was asked to join Mexico’s olympic team but her father said no due to the grueling training schedule.
The actress confided:
“My father thought I wouldn’t have had a normal childhood, and he wanted me to be normal. It’s too bad that with all his efforts it didn’t work out! But anyway, it worked out for me because now I’m an actress!”
Well, at least part of Salma’s dream was realized! Either way, the momma should be so proud of how far she has come!
