Hollywood bombshell SALMA HAYEK’s startling admission!

The Mexican actress who set hearts ablaze in a string of blockbuster hits confessed she first arrived in the US ti pursue her acting career as an "illegal alien"!

Hayke told Spain’s glam mag V that when she crossed the border in the 1990s she didn’t have the official documents to make her move "official".

"I was an illegal immigrant in the United States," Hayek admitted. "It was for a small period of time, but I still did it.

"I had to endure the worst time of all in terms of racial discrimination in Hollywood when I first started out.

"It was inconceivable to American directors and producers that a Mexican woman could have a lead role."

That’s ALL changed, hasn’t it?
