Salma Hayek Pinault, popularized by her role in Frida in 2002, a self-produced biography about Frida Kahlo's life in Mexico, she has quickly established herself in Hollywood thanks to her roles in films such as From Dusk Till Dawn and most recently Marvel's Eternals, where she played Ajak.
Hayek's award-winning career has earned her the title of one of the most powerful and influential Latina actresses in Hollywood, well-known for her looks as well as her acting abilities. Despite her openness about her birth in a half-Lebanese half-Spanish household, the actress has kept her love life hidden, even after nearly two decades of marriage.
François-Henri Pinault, who is she?
Pinault and Hayek got engaged in 2007 and the actress got engaged the same year. The couple wed in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, France, where Pinault is from. Despite their decade old marriage, Pinault is still known across France for being a businessman, CEO of the multinational company Kering, and the president of the luxury investment company Groupe Artémis.
Pinault, who is well-known as one of Europe's wealthiest individuals, was born in 1962 in Rennes, Ille-et-Vilaine. He worked for Hewelett-Packard, or HP, as a database and software developer. The company was renamed Kering, which today is a multimillionaire company.
Pinault was married for nearly a decade to Dorothée Lapère, with whom he has two children. In 2005, not long after his first wife's separation, the couple married Canadian model Linda Evangelista, who had their first child together in 2006. Fourteen years later, Hayek and Pinault are happily married and residing in London, England, with their daughter Valentina.
Pinault, although not exactly from the same entertainment world as Hayek, can certainly relate to the actress when it comes to getting exposure for all of his works and endeavors to the general public, even from a more business-focused perspective.
