Salma Hayek celebrates her 55th birthday in blue bathing suit: ‘Looking forward to new adventures’

Salma Hayek is celebrating her birthday in style.

The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard star turned 55 on Sept. 2 and marked the milestone with a photo of herself sporting a blue bathing suit as she stood in the ocean in front of a tropical beach.

“Happy 55th birthday to me,” the actress captioned the post. “Looking forward to new adventures #grateful.”

Followers rushed to wish Hayek a very happy birthday. One wrote, “Happy birthday, Virgo queen.” Another added, “I hope you know how loved you are. You deserve the best in this world and nothing less! Happy birthday, Salma.”

Earlier this week, the Ugly Betty alum, who will next appear in House of Gucci opposite Lady Gaga as well as Marvel’s Eternals, celebrated getting older by sharing a photo of herself to Instagram in which her wisps of white hair are visible. She declared the look “the white hair of wisdom.”

Hayek previously spoke out about her strategy for aging healthfully: meditation, which she started doing in her late 30s. As she explained to InStyle, “I don't think I am some hot tamale, but I know that for my age, for the lifestyle that I lived, I'm not doing too badly. And I attribute all of this to meditation.”

Of the practice, she added, "It makes you experience your body with a lightness that's really delicious and satisfying. With the breathing and the going inside, you explore your body in a different way, and you learn not to go crazy with the expectations."
