She once had a slime-selling business

When she was only 9 years old, Valentina had already shown signs of one day becoming an entrepreneur thanks to her slime-selling business.

The Frida actress once revealed on the Ellen DeGeneres Show that her daughter was into the slime craze and had even started selling it at her school.

However, her side-gig likely came to an end after both Salma and her businessman husband told her it wasn’t right.

She hangs out with Alfonso Cuarón’s daughter

Do you know that video of Valentina cutting Salma’s hair on her birthday? Well, according to MSN, it was filmed and edited by none other than the Roma director’s 15-year-old daughter, Bu Cuarón. It seems the two are friends.

In 2017 Valentina traveled to South Africa with her mom and half-sister from her father’s first marriage, Mathilde, to participate in World Aids Day on behalf of the organization, Mothers2Mothers.

The Beatriz at Dinner star explained the trip was part of a learning experience for her than a ten-year-old daughter. “We put her to work, participating in all kinds of dances and games and clapping, helping to stimulate the young children’s development,” she said.

Ariana Grande is her favorite singer

When news broke out about the terror attacks in Manchester during Ariana Grande’s concert in 2017, Hayek burst to tears during an interview at Cannes Film Festival as she revealed Ariana is her Valentina’s “favorite singer” and that her daughter could have easily been one of the victims from the tragic incident.

“If it was in London, this concert, my daughter would have been at that concert. It’s her favorite singer. My daughter’s nine. She would have been there, with or without me,” said Salma.

Salma Hayek’s Daughter Wants To Make It Big…Without Her Mother’s Help

Valentina Pinault, Salma Hayek’s daughter, is already planning her future. Valentina is not only the daughter of a talented actress, her father, François-Henri Pinault, is literally one of the richest billionaires in the world.

She comes from a privileged family, yet she is determined to develop her talents and enter the entertainment industry on her own merit.

Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault are very proud of their 12-year-old daughter Valentina. She was born in 2007, two years before the couple’s fairy tale wedding in 2009.

The Hayek Pinault family is extraordinarily wealthy. Francois-Henri comes from one of the richest families in the world. Hayek did not enter the marriage empty-handed either, she has made over $100 million from her film career.

With parents as successful as these, it would be very tempting for a child to feel entitled to fame. Although Valentina certainly wants her share of the spotlight, she wants to earn it by her own efforts.

Valentina Pinault is still exploring her interests. According to Hola!, in a recent interview, Hayek described her daughter’s talents.

She revealed, “My daughter also has a unique talent in music.

She has learned how to play piano, ukulele, and guitar all by herself and just in two months!” Valentina was motivated by her passion for music to master three different instruments.

Hola! reports that Hayek made it very clear that she did not force any of those hobbies onto her daughter.

She said, “Valentina has always been doing what she wanted; I’ve never made her do anything.” Valentina is still young, but she is beginning to make her own choices.

Although Valentina loves music, she is also a talented writer. According to Lincoln News, Hayek has been tempted to help her daughter. She explained, “Sometimes when I read her work, I have an urge to produce these stories.”

Many children would be so eager to be noticed that they would not mind taking advantage of their parents’ connections.

Valentina is different.

The Lincoln News reports that when Hayek offered to help, Valentina did not accept the offer. Hayek explained, “But she tells me that she will do it by herself when she’s older.”

For now, Valentina is content to practice her writing, instead of allowing her famous mother to turn it into a real screenplay.

Valentina Pinault has not yet had the opportunity to share her thoughts directly with the media.

When that time comes she will be able to explain exactly why she is interested in music and film. But for now, the heiress will continue to work on her projects behind the scenes.

Although Valentina wants to achieve her goals without her parents’ help, it certainly doesn’t hurt that her rich parents are very excited about her talents.

She comes from a privileged family, yet she is determined to develop her talents and enter the entertainment industry on her own merit.
