Salma says she won't let age stop her from doing her own stunts 

Salma has been open about the ageing process and admits while she sometimes feels a little less confident than she did when she was younger, for the most part she has no problem with getting older. 

She also opened up to The Guardian about the pressures women feel to remain youthful and said: "It's crazy. You have to be much better than your male colleagues. You still have to be a good wife and mother. And now you also have to be skinny, and you have to look 20 when you're 40. 

"It's too much. We need to stop with the crazy expectations, give ourselves a break."
