I was terrified of turning 50: Actress Salma Hayek

London, July 14: Actress Salma Hayek said she feared getting old and was worried about hitting 50.

The "Everly" actress, who is turning 49 soon, said somebody told her career would not last past the age of 35, report said.

"In the past, when I tried to imagine what I'd look like and what my life would be like at this age, I was terrified. I imagined myself looking old, but instead I think I still look OK, and I'm fine with my appearance.

"For too many generations, women have suffered from this terrible lie that age 50 is like falling off a cliff. Women have believed for so long we'd act and feel as if we were finished, and we surrendered to that myth," she said.

The "Tale of Tales" star - who had her first child Valentina aged 41 - went on to add that she no longer worries about turning 50, as it's an age where women can be "productive".

"Fortunately, we've stopped believing that. Fifty is a great age where we can be very productive and happy and not feel limited by anything.
