For all those starving tummies out there, there’s hope. A true humanitarian who isn’t afraid to walk in among the masses and lend a personal helping hand, Salma Hayek will forever be known for an amazing body and literally putting it towards good use. Why do you ask? Well, here’s a question for you: “Got milk?”
Taped during Hayek’s humanitarian mission to Sierra Leone to raise awareness about maternal neonatal tetanus last October, the actress – who gave birth to her own baby daughter Valentina on Sept. 21, 2007 – casually takes another mother’s baby boy into her arms and begins to feed him.
“She saw this baby suffering from malnutrition and she was still lactating from having had her own baby. She felt, ‘Why can’t I help this child out?’ ” says a source familiar with the situation.
“The mother was malnourished and didn’t have the necessary nutrients. She wasn’t lactating. She was a frail woman, so Salma wanted to help her out,” says the source.
As long as she’s not trying to pull some sort of “The Hand that Rocks the Cradle” stunt, I think it was a highly noble cause. I wonder how malnourished and hungry would a fully grown man have to be to get in on that action.
