Salma Hayek revealed that she was left "disfigured" after her pregnancy in an interview with Glam Belleza Latina in their latest issue.

Hayek gave birth to her daughter, Valentina, in 2007. The 5'2 movie star told the publication that she gained 50 pounds. The 46-year-old reflected that she got to see herself in a different light.

"I gained so much weight, I got an opportunity to see myself completely disfigured in many different ways - for a very good reason - and I don't regret it for a second," she said.

However, the weight gain made the Savages star appreciate her body even more. She began to accept the faults she used to find in her appearance.

"That's when I started appreciating my body. The things that I used to criticize, they were not that bad after all," she said.

Hayek shed the weight by the time she married billionaire François-Henri Pinault on Feb. 14, 2009. She and the French businessman wed in a civil ceremony in Paris and later in a more lavish affair in Venice three months later. Hayek, who became a household name because of her breakout role in Desperado, allowed that she also worked on regaining her confidence after her pregnancy. She was back in shape and better spirits by the time of her wedding.

"We've got to fight for our confidence every day in modern life because we live in a society that is very harsh to women," she said. "You have to be smart and successful and a good mother and beautiful and young and skinny forever."

Hayek also shared her love of motherhood in the profile. She was happy that she waited before becoming a mother.

"Every second is magical, every smile," she said. "I've already established my career.  I think it's very good to have a child at this age."

The actress added that she was very happy to be her age. Hayek did not subscribe to the belief that women were supposed to be depressed as they entered their 40's.

"I'm a late bloomer; I always have been. A lot of women think that this is the [age] when you start getting depressed. To that I say, 'No, no, no, no, no!' I'm having the best time of my life," she said.
