Salma Hayek in green Gucci at the LA ‘Savages’ premiere: why does she look awful?

Here are the rest of the photos from last night’s LA premiere of Savages – we already covered John Travolta and Blake Lively. Let’s start with Salma Hayek in green, beaded Gucci. Does anyone else think it’s weird that Blake Lively did NOT wear Gucci and Salma did? Blake just got a contract to represent Gucci’s latest perfume. So why is Salma in Gucci? I don’t even know. I do like the dress, it’s a beautiful color and a beautiful design. But Salma’s hair and makeup are ROUGH. Salma is a gorgeous woman with beautiful skin and hair – why she chose to style herself to look so haggard is beyond me. If I had her hair, I would do something more with it besides pulling it straight back in a busted Croydon facelift. CB claims that Salma looked much better in motion, during her red carpet interviews. Maybe.

Taylor Kitsch, another Savages star, looking incredibly boring. It’s not his suit (although the suit doesn’t help) – it’s HIM. He’s boring.

Mary-Louise Parker was the premiere for no reason (other than she probably just wanted to see the movie). I love her so much. She looks like a demented fairy here.

Helen Hunt in an LBD. She’s not in the movie either. It’s nice to see her out and about, though.

Benicio del Toro looks like he’s about to gut-punch someone. Why so angry?

OMG Demian Bichir. So hot. I’m consistently unimpressed by his girlfriend, though. But… at least he always brings her to these events. That’s nice.

    I love Salma dress. It’s faboulous.

  2. miriam says:

    I think she looks great.

  3. fabgrrl says:

    I just see *one* bad photo of Salma. Bad angle, lighting, weird expression, etc. Happens to everyone. She’s still got it!

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Agree. She is gorgeous, I think she just looks a little tired. But CB is always suggesting she has a bad behaving husband – we know that could take a toll on almost any woman.

  4. Meadowlark says:

    What? She looks as lovely as she normally does, to me.

  5. lizzi says:

    Isn’t the “gut-punch” angry look just what Benicio’s face looks like all the time? I like him but he looks like he’s pushing out a hard sh*t.

    • BW says:

      I thought that was his “happy” face?

      • bubbles says:

        it’s the eternal regret of hooking up for a minute while high with Rod Steward’s daughter , hence a lifetime of childsupport payments etched on his face. ouch!

    • Maguita says:

      That’s because, very much like Kelly Preston, Benicio del Toro also knows where John’s mouth had been…

      Or in this case, tried unsuccessfully to be.

  6. Nanz says:

    Benicio looks like Herman Munster without the nice smile. I LOVE TK so I have to disagree about him being boring. I’m incapable of an unbiased opinion when it comes to him.

  7. Memory30 says:

    Salma face looks gorgeous and Taylor so damn hot.

  8. lower-case deb says:

    why people insist on wearing hoove shoes are beyond me.

  9. Tiffany27 says:

    What? Salma is killing it. She looks gorgeous!
    Demian Bechir’s girlfriend on the other hand….

  10. lisa2 says:

    I don’t like Demian’s girlfriend’s outfit. It looks trashy to me.

    Salma is beautiful, I think the dress is just meh, because it looks like a dress that has been worn by everyone. Maybe because of the color.

  11. Smokey blues says:

    My theory: Salma has to work really hard to stay that thin and it ruins her face. She is naturally buxom and curvy, and I think her face and body look much better when she allows herself to be at her natural weight ( which I am guessing is a good 15 pounds heavier that what we are seeing here). Still a very very beautiful woman!

  12. irys says:

    to kaiser: Salma is wearing Gucci because her husband is CEO I think….

  13. Anne says:

    Awful? I think she looks great.

  14. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Um…Benecio del Torro. WTF. I haven’t seen him for a while so I guess I didn’t realize how shitty he looks. I can’t believe I used to think he was hot….smh… He actually kind of frightens me in these pics.

    Salma Hayek looks ok. She doesn’t have much makeup on (relatively speaking) so that’s probably why she looks a little worn-out.

  15. Christina_Vienna says:

    I think she looks amazing!

  16. ladybert62 says:

    That color is not good on her.

    All of the dresses are horrible.

  17. Tillie says:

    I think she looks gorgeous, only it looks like she has a ‘big jaw’ on the first picture.. Anyway, pretty woman!

  18. Anmelt says:

    I hate Salma for having such perfect skin and a totally taut jawline at nearly 46. It’s not fair!! She looks great. The green suits her.

    Mary Louise Parker is nearly 47 and looks mid thirties. She looks better than me at age 30!

    Some amazing genes…or some very subtle surgery but I think it is mostly genes.

  19. Another Nina says:

    Mary-Louise was there to support Demian, I assume. I love her but HATE those shoes. Ugh.
    My theory is that Helen Hunt is the HW backup for Jodie Foster – they are exactly the same type. So, Helen was in demand when Jodie took about a decade off staying with her kids. Now Jodie is back and there seems to be place for just one Jodie in HW. Never noticed but Helen has great legs!
    It pains me to see Riggs so not-charismatic. The kid is in fact beautiful and charming – why did the cut his hair? So, that he was in contrast with Aaron’s image? Another ugh.

  20. Hautie says:

    That chick with Demian Bichir… looks like one of those aunts of Paris Hilton! (But I know she isn’t.)

    That awful lime green back ground did nothing for anyone. It just drains the color out of everyone’s face.

    And I wonder if Benicio del Toro is giving that look, cause he just wrote out that child support check to Kimberly.

  21. Seagulls says:

    I think she looks beautiful but a little rough. She looks like she’s lost weight.

    Bencio del Toro looks like Lon Chaney.

  22. mzthirtyeight says:

    I rarely find Salma, face-wise, attractive. And I agree with the poster who thinks she looks better with a bit more weight on her. Her dress is okay, though.The guys are all pretty good looking.

  23. skuddles says:

    Love MLP’s dress – in fact, love her period. I can’t wait for Weeds to start up again!

    • Mimi says:

      I love her too, but she needs to lay off whatever she’s doing to her face. She was walking that perfect line of just barely tweaked, but now she’s venturing into overdone territory.

  24. Eve says:

    Taylor Kitsch, another Savages star, looking incredibly boring. It’s not his suit (although the suit doesn’t help) – it’s HIM. He’s boring.

    Nothing new here.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I feel like I’ve asked you 90 times who he is, Eve, then you tell me and then I forget again. Alas, he’s too boring for me to even imdb.
      Maybe this atrocious suit is his attempt to make himself more memorable?

      • Eve says:

        He’s more famous for the tv show Friday Night Lights, but he was also in Battleship and John Carter.

        I don’t know…he bores me to tears. As I’ve said before, it’s not that I dislike him — he’s too bland even for that.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Oh right. I guess that’s why I always forget him-I’ve never seen any of those movies/shows except a couple eps of FNL.
        He’s ZZZZZZ.

      • Anna says:

        I still don’t understand why Taylor Kitsch got these roles. His body is hot, but his face is so average, zero charisma and talent of a pile of wood.

        Canada is having excellent young actors: Francois Arnaurd, Marc-André Grondin, Xavier Dolan -Who is also director-, Nathan Fillion, Ryan Gosling, Maxim Gaudette, Luke Kirby… But I don’t what happened in British Columbia to make this pair of himbos: Taylor Kitsch and Hayden Christensen

  25. Iggles says:

    I think she looks fine!

    I’m glad she wasn’t pictured with her oaf of a husband, Henri Pinault. He’s prove money can’t buy you class! So terrible how he treats his son Augustin..

  26. Chicagogurl17 says:

    Have we seen benecio’s baby lately?

    • BeesKnees says:

      I have seen a bunch of pictures of Kimberly Stewart carrying the baby around wearing a helmet for plagiocephaly. I have never seen a picture of Benecio with her though.

  27. Blue says:

    Demian’s girlfriend looks like she just climbed off a pole. She is another one who needs to cut back with the tanning
    Salma is gorgeous, I like the dress but it’s not her dress.

  28. Kit says:

    Dear God, may I please have just one day looking as rough as Salma Hayek does here?

  29. Lindsey says:


    Salma is wearing Gucci, cause her rich-ass billionaire husband owns the company that owns Gucci, so she can wear Gucci in the bathroom, to the Kroger, to a movie premiere, etc. etc. eff a Blake Lively.

    Also, how on Earth does Salma look even remotely busted, and Mary Louise Parker looks only like a demented fairy? Are we looking at the same pics or do you just really hate Salma Hayek?

    • Veronica says:

      Thank you! I’m surprised that Kaiser even questioned why Salma would wear Gucci. I thought everyone knew that her billionaire husband owned the fashion house that owns Gucci.

      And I also think that Salma looks great in that dress.

      • Kaiser says:

        I questioned why Salma was wearing Gucci while Blake – who just signed with Gucci – was not. I thought the point I was making was perfectly clear, but I guess not.

  30. TXCinderella says:

    I think Salma looks gorgeous! I love her dress and her earrings.

  31. lucy2 says:

    I think Salma looks fine. She did pretty minimal makeup, but I LOVE that dress. It’s a good design for her figure too.

    MLP is a freak of nature, she does not age! I gave up on Weeds, but still really like her.

  32. Mara says:

    Salma looks so young and really pretty .

  33. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    In the second pic, she looks a lot like Idina Menzel. They could be sisters.

  34. janie says:

    Her body is so perfect and that dress really flatters it…but unfortunately not her face. She’s olive-toned so the green dress just brings out the green tones in her face.

  35. Me says:

    Whaaaat? She looks amazing!

  36. julie says:

    Salma Hayek.. ick
    Helen Hunt had a bad facelift. So did Mary Louise Parker. They both look unrecognizable.

    • Amy says:

      And I was just thinking that Helen Hunt’s face looked better than I expected it to…

    • bondbabe says:

      I would have to concur. Perhaps it is the pulling the hair straight back/very understated makeup combo that is giving off a “manly” appearance. She has a very prominent jawline.

  37. bns says:

    If she looks awful then FML.

    • Eve says:

      LOL! It reminds me of those comments where people claim that Bar Refaeli (or any other less famous pretty girl) is considered “ordinary or plain” where they live — I’d HATE to accidentally walk into such neighbourhood. Really.

      But my guess is that Kaiser is saying Salma Hayek looks awful for “Salma Hayek standards”.

  38. Rory says:

    Demian Bichir’s girlfriend: A ton of plastic surgery, anyone? Ugh.

  39. Loulou says:

    Is that the Bat signal on Salma’s chest? Maybe it’s a subliminal plant to get a part in the next one…? She looks gorgeous regardless.

  40. DuBarry says:

    How could you say she looks ‘awful’ ?

  41. valleymiss says:

    What am I missing here? I think Salma looks gorgeous, and I love the color of her dress. She’s not wearing very much makeup, but she still looks great. Damn her! Lol

  42. Amy says:

    Umm…that’s “awful”??? I wish I looked that awful on a good day!

  43. hairball says:

    Saw the TB recap above. I know, I can’t believe it, but I am on my way to being over TB too. I want to be interested because I used to love the show, but now I find myself bored and doing things on my lap top while on.

    I don’t care about the authority and the woman who had sex with Eric and Bill last Sunday. I know TB was always about sex, but at least there was a story to back it up. I know some people hate Sookie, but I don’t. I like seeing her interact with Bill and Eric.

    I am sad, but I dont see the show doing something I will be interested in again. Really disappointed with the shows now. Boring. Boring.

  44. yankeefangurl860 says:

    Mary Louise Parker was probably there because Demian Bichir (who played her husband on Weeds) is in the movie….

  45. Reece says:

    MLP’s shoes…Ye gods! That’s all I got.
    And Diddy Riese! cooookies!

  46. Everlyo says:

    It looks like Salma is wearing green contacts. That could be washing her out.

  47. UniqJaz says:

    I love her make up, hair and especially her dress.

  48. Maritza says:

    Yikes! Benicio Del Toro definitely looks like Herman Munster in that photo!

  49. nancypants says:

    Salma has never looked bad in her entire life, however, I think she looks very tired and a little ill as though she just got done-up as best as she could and went to work.

    That could explain the hair simply pulled back and the strain in the face and the dark circles under the eyes.

    Pregnant again?
    Maybe or she could just be tired and ill.
    It’s happened to all of us at times.

  50. Cinderella says:

    The close up shot did not reflect Salma’s beauty. I kind of agree w/Kaiser. The flash and distance made her look better in the other shots.

  51. stop the madness says:

    Salma looks a bit tired, but not bad. Love her make up.

  52. Alexa says:

    Awful? She looks like a goddess, is this a joke, Salma does NOT look awful!

  53. Mimi says:

    Selma is beautiful as always not sure what you’re seeing.

  54. Chellez says:

    WHERE’S HOT BITCH AARON JOHNSON?!???! He’s one of the leads!

    *stomps off*

  55. Lindy says:

    Eh, Salma looks ok here, but I have really come to dislike her with all the bad publicity she’s gotten lately. The interviews full of worse-than-GOOP I-am-not-like-the-peasants bullsh!t, the ugly comments about her husband’s other child… She may be pretty on the outside, but it seems that on the inside she’s an ugly b!tch.

    And Mary Louise Parker looks bizarrely cute here. Weird and kooky, but cute. “Demented fairy” is about right.

    • Ally says:

      Agree. It’s actually a pretty, nude make-up look, but she does look like a Kardashian.

      Maybe she just looks a little tense because after the child support debacle in the courts, everyone realizes she’s a pretentious gold-digger who married a rich jerk so she could push face creams.

  56. Mouse says:

    LOVE that color, but not sure it works for Salma. And yikes–she hasn’t lost too much weight, she’s been surgically messing with her jawline; looks very masculine.

    I love MLP, so I’ll forgive her for that dress. She’s adorable.

    I see what you mean about Demian’s woman. That is some hardcore posing she’s doing in that photo, *yawn*

  57. Kosmos says:

    My take on this is that Salma isn’t wearing much eye makeup, thus she doesn’t look as accentuated as she usually does. Her hair is back and her makeup reflects a more nude look. I’m glad, too, that she is covering up front for a change. I’m tired of seeing her fakes bursting out of clothes. Dresses with jewels and such add more weight to the body, so these should only be worn by very trim women. I also agree that Demien’s partner looks a bit trashy. She’s obviously trying to leave an impression on all of us, and she has.
