See Stars Sexy Magazine Shoots Although Hayek has just come out with a new skin-care line, she doesnt place as high a priority on beauty as some might think. I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be, she said. I could do a lot more: exercise, or not eat dessert. Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I dont think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. Its a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course, she added.

Youve got to have a sense of humor about who you are and give yourself a break.

The clip of Hayek nursing a very hungry baby boy (ironically born on the same day as her own daughter) has surfaced on YouTube as well as on dozens of other web sites, drawing thousands of comments. null null The actress and producer was told by doctors in Sierra Leone that many mothers stop breastfeeding their infants within the first few months after birth because of pressure from their husbands. Tradition has it, in some areas, that it is not acceptable to have sexual relations with breast feeding women.

Physicians there told Hayek they would like to see mothers breastfeed for a full two years but that stigma too often gets in the way.

At the time she was still breastfeeding her 1-year-old daughter. null null She told “Nightline” co-anchor Cynthia McFadden that she thought her daughter wouldn’t mind sharing her milk. “Am I being disloyal to my child by giving her milk away?” Hayek said. “I actually think my baby would be very proud to share her milk.

She related a story about her great-grandmother many years ago in Mexico saving the starving baby of a stranger by breastfeeding the child.
