Salma Hayek Has Faith in Technology, Body Image Issues

 Not to imply that the famously beauteous Salma Hayek is a dog. We should all be so dog-like! But the actress might just have a wee failure of perspective problem, from what I’m reading on the blogs lately. It seems that, shocked by the weight gain inevitable with a healthy pregnancy and shocked further by the firm refusal of those pounds to come off within, say, fifteen or twenty minutes of the birth, she has resorted to extreme measures to return to her Hollywood-standard slimness.

From AzCentral:

Salma Hayek is using an “industrial-size” breast pump to lose her baby weight, it has been claimed.

The ‘Frida’ actress is resorting to extreme measures after friends told her breastfeeding is the best way to shed post-pregnancy pounds. Hayek gave birth to her first child, Valentina Paloma, in September.

She’d better be careful with that machine if she doesn’t want to end up with breasts that look like that Jack Russel’s ears! I think, though, they’re a little off-base with their description of the alleged milBreast Pumpking machine. This blogger has a better understanding of the situation:

From GrowingYourBaby:

I believe the term that this writer is looking for is a ‘hospital grade’ pump (worth sometimes $700-$900). They are usually a decent size, come with more options and have a stronger, more consistent suction.

Of course, if I looked like Salma Hayek I’d just ask for volunteers and do it manually.

    She may lose the baby weight but I guarantee she won’t get that waist back!

  2. Kirsten Says:

    Yes, but she has industrial size boobs.

  3. raincoaster Says:

    Until I read this I thought she had implants! She was not that zaftig in Dogma.

  4. Jennie Says:

    Phyllis, Of course she’ll get that waist back! Depending on the surgeon, it will only cost between 10 and 40K!!! Look at Demi Moore’s waistline. I think it may be smaller than before she had kids…

  5. Jen Says:

    I’m actually surprised that she, of all people, is so worried about it. I always assumed she was one of those curvy-and-loving-it types.

    And, as for the waist in question, she probably never really had it to begin with. That picture is most likely the result of an industrial strength – er, hospital grade, sorry – girdle.

    you know how you lose post pregnancy weight FAST? if you’re breastfeeding, having to go on the no dairy, no soy diet because your little one is MSPI (milk soy protein intolerance). why? because if you read labels carefully, there is practically nothing to eat on this diet! of course, it totally SUCKS your little one has food intolerance/allergy issues at such a young age, and while all that weight is melting off of you, you start to wonder how nutrious your breast milk is when you can hardly eat much, and how much of a toll your body is taking for this (nutrient out and much coming in). lovely, no?

  7. raincoaster Says:

    That IS a dilemma. Mind you, a life without soy is a life lived more richly in my opinion.

    Uhhh … she DOES have implants. A set in the 90s, and a revised set in the 2000s. He set from the 90s was poorly done, looking like two rock-hard halves of a cantaloupe. He second set was also done poorly, in my opinion, because they are pornstar-sized. The surgeon got rid of the two halves of the cantaloupe look, but they are way too huge. Great if she is going down on her knees, but otherwise, ridiculous.
