Salma took to Instagram with an old photo of herself alongside a dear friend and she included a heartfelt caption which left fans amazed. "#tb with my best friend Patricia who has blessed me with her friendship since I was born nearly 55 years ago."

Salma says you should never let anyone tell you you're too old to do anything 

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."
