Salma Hayek doesn't look like most 45-year-old women.

Unlike some of her peers, the Puss in Boots actress tells the November issue of Latina that she's never used cosmetic surgery to maintain her youthful appearance.

"I have no Botox. The thought of a needle coming to my forehead, it really gives me the heebie-jeebies," she says. "So I'd rather put on my creams. It's fun, it smells good and it's relaxing. Am I opposed to doing it later? I don't know. I want to see how far I can go."

The sexy star -- married to French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault since 2009 -- says it's a "miracle" she's still booking jobs in Hollywood, "especially because I'm not even chasing it."

"Nowadays I only work with friends or somebody I admire, or on something that is really special," she explains. "Somehow, just by doing that, it's the year that I worked the most in my life!"

Hayek says that after nearly two decades in the show business, she's more focused on spending time with Pinault, 49, and their daughter Valentina, 4.

"I'm in a very comfortable position because, even if I never worked again and am just a housewife and a mother, I'm happy. I really am," Hayek tells Latina. "I was born to be a wife and a mother."
