That's one way to have your morning coffee! Salma Hayek knows how to turn up the heat with her bikini selfies, but one snapshot in particular is difficult to erase from our minds.

At the time, Salma was enjoying a holiday in Greece with her French billionaire husband, Francois-Henri Pinault.

Salma - who has been gracing our screens for more than 25 years - opened up to People magazine about her body image and how it's improved as she's aged.

"When I look at pictures of me in my 30s or in my 40s, I see myself more beautiful than I saw myself at the time," she said. "I used to criticise myself so much.

Salma shared plenty of snaps from her vacation 

"Now, when I look in the mirror and there are things that I don’t see, I think about how much I’m going to like me in ten years."

Salma married Francois in Paris in 2009 and they are proud parents to their fourteen-year-old daughter, Valentina.

She had her only child at the age of 41 but insists being an older mum only improved her parenting. 

“I think I’m a better mother because I had her later,” she said, before admitting: "I do get tired. I’m not going to lie."

As for ageing gracefully? Salma insists when it comes to plastic surgery she "hasn’t done an-y-thing!"
