Salma Hayek

Perhaps Mexico's sexiest export, this actress found herself in hot water when she told German Vogue she "hardly had any memories of what it is to be Mexican." She later went on the record to clarify her comments, which she claims were lost in translation. "I have taught my child to embrace her Mexican heritage, to love my first language, Spanish, to learn about Mexican history, music, folk art, food, and even the Mexican candy I grew up with," she said. "I have tried my whole life to represent my Mexican roots with honor and pride."
