Despite her best efforts, Salma Hayek-Pinault reveals that her daughter Valentina doesn’t believe in Santa Claus.
“No matter what I say to her, she just doesn’t buy it, and she’s 2 1/2. I refuse to give it up,” the Grown-Ups star says. “I say, ‘There is a Santa Claus,’ and she says, ‘Okay, Mommy. In pretend world, right?’ She really doesn’t believe. There’s nothing I can say to make her believe in Santa Claus.”
The gorgeous actress says she hasn’t given up hope just yet. By the time Christmas rolls around she’s hoping little Valentina will have had a change of heart.
“I’m hopeful that she’s too young to believe in Santa Claus and, in a year or so, she’ll believe in it, especially because it’s always a great tool for blackmail when you say, ‘If you don’t do this, Santa Claus isn’t going to bring you anything.’”
