Salma Hayek reveals 'feminist' daughter Valentina is proud of #MeToo movement

Salma Hayek’s daughter is already taking after her famous mother. The How to Be a Latin Lover star, who shared her harrowing story about her experience with disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein last year, said that her ten-year-old daughter Valentina Pinault is aware of the power of the #MeToo movement. “Oh yes. She calls herself already a feminist even before all this,” the 51-year-old shared with ABC News ahead of the 90th annual Academy Awards. “She identifies with it. She’s very proud of it. I really feel relieved that the new generations will have it easier.”

Last year, the Hitman’s Bodyguard star opened up to HOLA! USA about one major way that her daughter takes after her. Salma said, “Valentina and I are not very similar personality-wise. But she doesn’t have stage fright on camera. In my family everyone is very confident, graceful and light. Valentina and I are the ones who panic on stage. But she gets in front of the camera with no problem!”
