Salma Hayek is having a “great experience” in life at the moment.

The 46-year-old Mexican-American actress shares five-year-old daughter Valentina Paloma with French billionaire François-Henri Pinault.

The family live in France together and Salma is content.

“It’s great. This is a good time in my life,” she told People magazine.

“I think happiness has less to do with where you live and more to do with how you live and who you live with. Paris is a beautiful city. It’s a great experience for me—something new and definitely far away from Hollywood.”

Salma loves her brood and attempts to fill them up with delicious food as much as possible.

“Family is the biggest blessing that anyone can have… I also love to cook,” she shared.

“I like to go to the market with an open mind and let the food talk to me. I actually do that. I see, then I start salivating. I start imagining the combinations.”

Salma’s new comedy Grown Ups 2 also starring Chris Rock, Adam Sandler and Taylor Lautner will be released this summer.
