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!"
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."
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.
