She defies the size zero ideal of beauty with her vivacious curves, but Salma Hayek claims she didn't always have the womanly figure she is recognised for now.
The Mexican actress, 45, appeared on The Graham Norton Show to promote new film Puss In Boots, yet conversation soon turned to her insecurities growing up.
Looking sophisticated in fishnets, together with a black and white ensemble, Hayek revealed she even turned to Christ in a bid to boost her assets.
She said: 'I was the youngest in class and all these girls were starting to get them (breasts) and I wasn’t getting anything - I was really scared.
'I was getting teased a lot because everyone was older and I was the skinny tomboy.'
Salma added: 'I went to a church that had a saint that was supposed to do a lot of miracles.
'I put my hands in the holy water and went: "Please Jesus give me some boobs."' Salma Hayek reveals body confidence crisis | Mail Online
