Salma is confident in the aging process 

The mom-of-one 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 opened up to The Guardian about the pressures women feel to remain youthful though 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."
