Salma Hayek !!!
Betcha guessed from the middle eastern sounding name.
Salma Hayek (born September 2 , 1966 ) was born in Coatzacoalcos , Veracruz , Mexico to a Lebanese father and a Mexican mother. Raised in a devoutly Catholic family, she was sent to a Catholic boarding school in Louisiana , USA, at the age of 12. After leaving the school due to alleged behavioral problems with the religious sisters who ran the school, Hayek returned to Mexico for a period, but then she was sent to Houston, Texas , to live with her aunt, where she stayed until she was 17. She subsequently moved to Mexico City for college, where she studied International Relations. To the chagrin of her family, she decided to drop out in order to pursue a career as an actress.
