Salma Hayek is one in a million but at the beginning of her career, she says she was told she resembles this Hollywood star!

The Mexican actress shared a throwback photo from the nineties on Instagram on Thursday in which she's wearing a lacy, cropped vest and she asked fans to weigh in on the snapshot.

Salma captioned the photo: "Back in the day they used to say I looked like Winona Ryder, what do you think?"

Her followers immediately started commenting but they were utterly divided. 

"Kind of, but you're beautiful in your own way," wrote one, while another said: "Yes, definitely."

Others commented: "Absolutely not," and "I don’t see it," and some just acknowledged: "You’re both beautiful."

There's just five years difference between the actresses. Salma is 54 and Winona is 49.

Salma is incredibly proud of her all-natural look and says she gains confidence as she ages.
