Salma Hayek has no plans to stop sharing stunning bikini and one-piece selfies with her fans. They're all from a single trip, the 54-year-old actress told Entertainment Tonight, and she's not going to stop posting them. She also—rightly—has no regrets. "I had to lose a lot of weight and exercise to get into the bikini towards the end of last year," she said, telling the outlet that she took many photos once she got down to the size she wanted while on her trip. "I'm glad I took a lot of pictures, I have no shame on it, because it was the first week of the vacation." She said that sharing the shots generally has been "liberating."

"I saved my pictures; I'm not in the same condition today, and I'm spreading the love out like every two weeks," she admitted. "I'm going to put up another one. I’m almost running out of them, but I don't know if you have that feeling, like, 2021!"

Yes, she's aware some people may be over it, by the way. She's not: "People are sick of it, but I'm going to let them take a break," she joked. "They're going to think I'm wearing a bikini every day. No, they're all from the same location." Hayek has 17.3 million Instagram followers, for context. Her last bikini shot, posted on January 19, got over 2 million likes.
