Salma wowed fans with the snap

The mother-of-one made an age confession earlier this year when she revealed she was still performing stunts in her movies.

She teased the release of her latest project The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard with a clip from the film and wrote: "Never let anyone tell you you are too old. Get ready for this summer where at 54 I get to pull some of my best stunts ever."

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."
