Actress Salma Hayek Pinault may be “pushing 50” (her words!) but she’s busier — and hotter — than ever (again, her words!). And as if you had any doubt, she’s making her point in a sizzling photoshoot for Net-a-porter’s The Edit.

“I feel great. I looked worse in my youth! I’m in good shape right now,” she says in an interview. “I never exercised my whole life, but now I do yoga. I was always borderline chubby, because I like my food and frankly, I like my wine.”

The 48-year-old mom to Valentina stuns in a black Gareth Pugh gown and Maison Margiela arm cuffs on her new cover. But she’s no “girl next door,” she says, also admitting her “quite short and overly wavy” figure made casting difficult at some points in her career.

Now, her schedule is jam-packed and she claims it has nothing to do with planning. “I don’t fit into stereotypes of a woman that should continue to work,” she says. “If you think about it, I’m limited by the way I talk and by the way I look. I’m 48 years old. Amazing, talented people [stop finding work] at 32, 33 sometimes! … It has something to do with karma, maybe. I believe in karma.”

Wine, food, yoga and a little bit of karma. Got it! Off we go to do some Sun Salutations (followed by plenty of vino).
