Salma & husband bonded over science & sports


Salma Hayek and her husband Francois-Henri Pinault fell in love with each other because of their shared passion for sports and science. The 50-year-old actress met Pinault 11 years ago and she was blown away by their exchange, which she said was not a “typical conversation” to spark romance, reported Hello magazine.

“It was so silly. We started talking about football – we’re crazy about soccer – then science because we love space and physics. “He was so smart, charming and funny. At first I stereotyped him as not my kind of guy at all, and then I realised he was my perfect match,” Hayek said.
