She spends the rest of her time between being a devoted wife to François- Henri Pinault, CEO of the luxury conglomerate Kering, mother to their daughter, Valentina, and for the rest of the world, she is an outspoken activist, passionately campaigning for women’s rights through her involvement in the charity Chime for Change.

She recently appeared on the cover of the digital magazine Net-a-Porter’s latest issue with a gorgeous black-and-white spread, showing that her beauty is natural as is her talent and consistent dedication to whatever pursuit she happens to set her mind to.

“I never exercised my whole life, but now I do yoga. I was always borderline chubby, because I like my food and, frankly, I like my wine. I have to say, I’m pushing 50 but I feel great. I looked worse in my youth! I’m in good shape right now,” Hayek told Net-a-Porter’s The Edit.

She gives hope to those of us that share her love of good food and great wine. It is possible to enjoy life to the fullest, still look that good and have a blooming career.

“This is by far the busiest I have been in my life. The funny thing is that I really don’t even understand how [it all] came about. Maybe because when you don’t want something as much, you’re not desperate. You will see some of the best work of my life this year, because I’ve had the opportunity; because [the directors] gave me the roles.”

She has five films out in 2015: the thriller Everly, the animated film The Prophet, the baroque fantasy Tale of Tales, the drama Septembers of Shiraz, and the fabulously titled rom-com, How To Make Love Like An Englishman, in which she stars alongside Jessica Alba and Pierce Brosnan.

In addition to being an accomplished actress, Haye found a way to become a producer, an Oscar nominee and an outspoken activist. (Net-a-Porter)

Even though she is a highly achieved and successful woman, her modesty manages to shine through.

“If you think about it, I’m limited by the way I talk and by the way I look. I’m 48 years old. Amazing, talented people [stop finding work] at 32, 33 sometimes! Not so much in London, but in the US it’s crazy. Also, for those who have never seen me in person…I’m quite short. I have an overly… wavy body. I’m not like the girl next door who is easy to cast. I don’t fit into any of the stereotypes of a woman that should continue to work. I don’t know what it is, but I don’t think it has anything to do with planning. It has something to do with karma, maybe. I believe in karma.”
