Salma Hayek was forced to remind an overzealous fan that she was a happily married woman after he practically proposed in the comments section of one her bikini-clad Instagram post.

The Mexican-born beauty, 54, shared throwback photo over the summer of a nineties modelling campaign and it got one fan excited about a possible romance.

Salma shared two sultry images on her social media and captioned them: "This photo is from a European bathing suit campaign I did for H&M in 1999."

One follower then wrote: "Are you still single?" along with a crying with laughter emoji.

Salma chose to publicly turn down the confident fan and gently reminded him: "Been happily married for a long time."

Salma tied the knot with French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault in 2009 and they have a 13-year-old daughter, Valentina, together.
