She seems to be the star of movies like Frida, Eternals Y desperado he does not want the teenager to follow in his footsteps in the cinema, reports Univision.
“I want different things, but almost always I move between 4, I would like to be an actress and then a director because that is what makes sense in my head. Also, I think it must be more difficult to be a director if you do not have experience on the other side of the screen, that could help direct,” Valentina told Vogue Mexico when she graced the cover of the magazine with her mother.
“When you act very young, you lose your anonymity,” Hayek said.. “I think that in general the best thing is to have and maintain a life strategy that allows you to have an artistic side, a professional side and another as a woman. I don’t love the idea that my daughter is such a young actress, but if that’s her decision, go ahead.”
Valentina, who is the daughter of the billionaire French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault, knows fame closely. Since she was a child, she has been photographed with her parents and she has accompanied them to multiple red carpets and events.

Being present in Valentina’s life is a priority for Salma Hayek. “She is wonderful and the adventure of discovering her evolution and how her head moves—and how she transforms and grows and evolves—has been fascinating,” she told People in spanish about his daughter. “I try to be very respectful, not only of her privacy, but of who she is and who she becomes, and not be a person who has to be saying to her all the time: ‘You have to be like this.’ If you don’t give her the space for her to discover who she is without my prejudices, without my expectations. Guide her, but at the same time not impose on her an image of who I would like her to be.”
