By Chiderah Monde / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, June 12, 2013, 1:11 PM Comment Dusan Reljin for InStyle Salma Hayek says she could do a lot more to look her best, but looks arent necessarily a priority for the dazzling actress. One of Hollywood’s most beautiful leading actresses thinks she could try to be “more beautiful.” “I know people have always thought I was beautiful, but I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be,” Salma Hayek , 47, says in the July issue of InStyle magazine.

I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course.” When it comes to her husband, French billionaire fashion mogul Francois-Henri Pinault, Hayek says she does take her appearance seriously.

In addition to being a Hollywood actress and producer, Hayek is an acivist. She helped start Chime for Change, the campaign for women’s empowerment around the world co-founded by Gucci. Beyonce headlined the affiliated Sound of Change London Concert on June 1. Giving her advice to women, Hayek says honesty is the best policy. “You’ve got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what you’ve got,” she said.
