Salma Hayek is opening up about her experience going through menopause.
During an appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch series “Red Table Talk," the 54-year-old discussed the many questions she was asked upon visiting her doctor, reported Entertainment Tonight.
"I had to take a test," Hayek said. "And the questions were terrifying. They were asking me things like, 'Are your ears growing and there's hair coming out of them? Are you growing a mustache and a beard? Are you easily irritable? Are you crying for no reason? Are you gaining a lot of weight really fast that doesn't go away no matter what you do? Are you shrinking?'"
The “Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” star then detailed a symptom that wasn’t discussed as she explained how her breasts have gotten larger since first undergoing menopause.
"The boobs grow a lot," she added. "For some women they get smaller. But there are some women that when you gain weight, your boobs grow, and other women that when you have children and you breastfeed your boobs grow and they don't go back down, and then in some of the cases when you are in menopause they grow again. And I just happen to be one of those women where it happened in every, single step!"
And while many had assumed she surgically enhanced her figure, the “Frida” star reiterated how it was her body’s reaction to the natural biological process.
"A lot of people said that I had breast augmentation; I don't blame them! My boobs were smaller! So was the rest of my body," she continued. "But they have just kept growing. Many, many sizes. And my back has been really suffering from it. And not a lot of people talk about this."
With her acting career thriving -and the recent addition of action star to her stellar resume - Hayek made it clear she has no issue with getting older.
"There's no expiration dates for women. That has to go," she said. "Because you can kick ass at any age. You can hold your own at any age, you can dream at any age, you can be romantic at any age.”
