Salma Hayek was teased for being short
Even Salma Hayek was self-conscious of her height when she was younger. “I felt like Ugly Betty many, many times. I’m very short so when I was growing up, people made fun of me as if it was a birth defect, a deformity… like I was in a circus or something,” the actress shared with Oprah. “I think we all have something people point out to you when you’re a kid and then you point it out to yourself nonstop.” Things worked out OK for Salma, she certainly didn’t let her height stand in her way.
