Playing EXCLUSIVE: Salma Hayek Says She Has 'Insecurities Like Everybody Else,' Reveals Her Secret to Feeling Sexy

Salma Hayek is one of Hollywood's ageless beauties, but even the stunning star admits she sometimes struggles with her body image.

The 49-year-old actress spoke with ET's Deidre Behar at the premiere of her new film, Septembers of Shiraz, at the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and Hayek opened up about feeling self-conscious.

"I don't always feel I look so amazing," Hayek shared, when asked about her secret to maintaining her flawless figure. The celebrated star admitted that she has her share of "insecurities. [Just] like everyone else!"

However, there's one person who helps Hayek feel as sexy and stunning as everyone else in the world sees her: Her husband, François-Henri Pinault.

"I still feel a little bit [sexy] because my husband is very good at making me feel like I still got it," Hayek shared. "But it's ok, it's not the most important thing in my life to feel the sexiest."

That doesn't mean she isn't working hard to stay fit. Hayek admitted that she doesn't like to exercise, but she did find a trainer in London who taught her how to keep in shape while going about her day-to-day life.

"She showed me a way to rearrange the muscles and the way you operate with them," Hayek shared. "It's wonderful to be present with your body instead of just collapsing into the bones."

Hayek turns 50 in September, just days before her daughter, Valentina, turns 9. While the actress is happy, fit and healthy, she also admitted that she's not considering having any more children.

"I'm very blessed because I have three stepchildren, so I have a family of four kids," said Hayek, who welcomed her daughter when she was 42. "Four is enough."

For Hayek, it’s family that makes her the happiest. "It's not success in this or in that, or money or things, or beauty. What if you're really beautiful and you're not loved? That's not gonna make you happy. But what makes you happy is, for me, my family," she shared. "[They are] the biggest blessing I have."

Septembers of Shiraz opens in theaters on Friday. Check out an exclusive clip from the intense drama below.
