Salma Hayek: ‘I am proud to be Mexican’ – Yahoo! News

Salma Hayek: ‘I am proud to be Mexican’ – Yahoo! News.

Looks like the Magazine misquoted her. At any rate this is good publicity for her movie. As they say in hollywood; any publicity is good publicity. 

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Salma Hayek says she is proud to be Mexican and that comments suggesting otherwise were “lost in translation.”
The 45-year-old actress issued a statement Thursday after German Vogue magazine quoted her as saying she “hardly had any memories of what it is to be Mexican.”
“I have never denied my background or my culture,” Hayek says in the statement released by publicist Cari Ross. “I have taught my child to embrace her Mexican heritage, to love my first language, Spanish, to learn about Mexican history, music, folk art, food, and even the Mexican candyI grew up with. I have always been an active part of my community. I have tried my whole life to represent my Mexican roots with honor and pride. It saddens me when my words are lost in translation and taken out of context to hurt the people of Mexico, whom I love.”
