9. Salma Hayek Married at 46

The first time billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault proposed to Salma was in 2007, when the actress was pregnant with their daughter Valentina.

Unfortunately, the media suddenly broke the story that model Linda Evangelista had allegedly given birth to Pinault’s child. At first, Francois-Henri went into full denial mode, but eventually he admitted it was true. The only defence he had was that the child had been conceived before he met Salma. Still, Salma decided they should separate.

It was only two years later, in 2009, that Francois-Henri was able to win her heart again.
