Salma Hayek Was Thinking Of Running Away From The Wedding, And Here’s Why

Salma Hayek and her husband, François-Henri Pinault, have a strong and happy marriage. Salma is famous for acting, and Henri is the boss of a big fashion company. They often go to events together and support each other. They're like a super couple, known for their success in different fileds. People like them not just for their work but also because they seem really happy together.
The couple had a surprise wedding on Valentine's Day in 2009. It was so unexpected that Salma didn't even know it was happening. Recently, she shared more about this charming love story, giving us a peek into the surprise nuptials that took place on that special day.

Salma Hayek shared that her family, including her parents and brother, kind of forced her into getting married. They took her to the courthouse, and it was a big surprise for her. Salma wasn't really planning on getting married, and she was actually nervous about it. 
She even said she had a fear of marriage. The decision to have a courthouse wedding wasn't really hers; her family pretty much made her go through with it, and she didn't have much say in the matter.

In her own words, she didn't even get the chance to say no. Even though she was surprised at first, Salma agreed to marry him. They had lunch at his parents' house, which was carefully set up by his mom. The lunch made the day even more interesting and unexpected.
The interesting part of this lovely love story doesn't stop there. Some may wonder why Salma agreed to marry at first but was unsure about showing up on the actual day. After the simple courthouse wedding, she casually mentioned that it didn't feel different. Yet, as time went by, the excitement grew, and her husband suggested having a party. Months later, they had a bigger and probably more planned wedding ceremony.

Talking about how their relationship lasts, Salma shared some thoughts on what keeps their love strong.

For them, spending time often means doing nothing special, just being in the same place and showing care in small ways, like making a cup of tea for each other.
