Salma Hayek uses her breasts for good, not evil
While on a UNICEF mission in Sierra Leone as part of her involvement for the fight against tetanus, Salma Hayek met an African woman who was unable to breast-feed her own baby. Salma who was nursing her own daugher Valentina at the time decided to take action. Much like a mother cat who stumbles across an abandoned litter of kittens, Salma offered up her own breastmilk for the little baby.
“The baby was perfectly healthy, but the mother didn’t have milk. He was very hungry. I was weaning Valentina, but I still had a lot of milk that I was pumping, so I breast-fed the baby.
“You should have seen his eyes. When he felt the nourishment, he immediately stopped crying,” said Hayek.
Personally, I think it's great that Salma is using her breasts for humanity, but let's see what the experts have to say.
