On a recent morning, Hayek tells InStyle , she was feeling jet-lagged after having flown to Los Angeles from Paris the night before, when Valentina ran into her room. Valentina jumped on my bed and hugged me, and I go, What are you doing? You scared me! Hayek, 45, tells the magazine in its July issue. She started giggling and said to me, You desperately needed my energy. I was so surprised she said that. A 4-year-old! And she was so right, the actress adds. Hayek and her husband , French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault , split much of their familys time between Paris and L.A. But while their routine can certainly be exhausting, Hayek says, Valentina doesnt mind the hectic lifestyle and traveling schedule. Were lucky because she loves traveling , Hayek explains. For her its second nature. If I put her in a school in Spain because Im doing a movie there, shes excited about this new experience with other kids and the teachers. And when she leaves, she does so with no sorrow. She remembers them and talks about them and loves them, but she doesnt have the anxiety or sadness none of that. After spending her days juggling responsibilities as a wife, mother, actress and businesswoman, Hayek says she enjoys decompressing in the evenings by reading things like Dr. Seuss books to Valentina.

She likes to pick strapless looks because: When I turned 40, I started thinking, This is the last year, whenever Id wear a strapless dress. I always thought you cant wear them after a certain age, but Im still getting away with it! 2.

I could do a lot moreexercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts.
