On Saturday, Salma Hayek celebrated her 57th birthday with a series of stunning beach photos of herself in a red string bikini.
The actress reminisced on being ‘profoundly thankful’ for all her ‘blessings’ as she celebrated being a year older.
The Magic Mike’s Last Dance actress looked stunning in a bright red bikini with a white patterned border as she frolicked in the crystal-clear sea.
She was photographed sitting comfortably on the sand with a few seagulls wandering along behind her, shielding herself from the sun’s rays with sunglasses and a straw hat as she wandered through the seas.
Sharing her gratitude and excitement over her birthday in the caption, the 2003 Oscar nominee wrote in English as well as her native Spanish: ‘I’m so happy to be alive and so profoundly grateful for all the blessings!!!! 🎂
‘My beloved family, my precious friends, my health, my work that keeps me going, my empowering team, my relationship with animals & nature, and the love of all my loyal fans.’

‘Happy 57th birthday to me!!! 🎉’ she added.
‘Happiest of birthdays,’ wished How to Get Away with Murder star Viola Davis in the comments, while Priyanka Chopra Jonas posted: ‘Happy birthday gorgeous.’
‘Feliz Cumpleaños Salma,’ wrote Oscar-winner Sir Anthony Hopkins, adding: ‘We love you ❤️’
The 87-year-old Silence of the Lambs star and Salma previously won the internet’s hearts when they danced together on Instagram to celebrate his Academy Award win for his work in The Father in 2021.
Many of the Mexican-American actress’s admirers also chimed in, showering her with adulation, which included nothing more than the word ‘goddess’ in one response – and we completely agree.
‘You are incredible, exquisite in every way,’ added another fan.
Salma recently uploaded another photo of herself in a pink bikini, jumping onto the back of her husband François-Henri Pinault, 61, in the ocean in July.
She also celebrated National Bikini Day earlier this month by posting some steamy photographs of herself posing by a pool in nothing but a patterned bikini.
Posing in a luxurious swimming pool, Salma wrote: ‘Happy #NationalBikiniDay!’
The star added: ‘Can you believe the bikini has only been around for 77 years?! Let’s hope they don’t ban them too #notathrowback.’
