On how women are expected to have all these qualities:
“We’ve got to fight for our confidence every day in modern life because we live in a society that is very harsh to women. You have to be smart and successful and a good mother and beautiful and young and skinny forever. Success is happiness. If you’ve found the right companion for life, a good relationship with loved ones, if you are healthy — my God, you are immensely successful.”
“I believe that change keeps you young. I’m a late bloomer; I always have been. A lot of women think that this is the [age] when you start getting depressed. To that I say, ‘No, no, no, no, no!’ I’m having the best time of my life.”
… says Salma.
