Salma Hayek Has Outing With Look-Alike Daughter

Salma Hayek had a girls' night out this week, but it wasn't fellow actress Penelope Cruz who was by her side.

The "Frida" actress attended the Los Angeles premiere of "Khalil Gibran's The Prophet," an animated film she produced and lent her voice to, alongside her 7-year-old daughter, Valentina. The pair even opted for matching black outfits.

"It's actually a grandmother-mother-daughter date night," Hayek told People magazine. "My mom is also here. This film is for everybody."

Valentina, who also brought some friends to the screening, voices a character in the French version of the film. (Her father is French businessman François-Henri Pinault, making her trilingual.)

Mom Salma voices the role of Kamila, who cleans house for an exiled poet (Liam Neeson), while young Oscar nominee Quvenzhané Wallis voices her daughter, Almitra.

Hayek admits that she usually shies away from bringing her daughter to public events, but "it's a special occasion," she tells the magazine.

"She suffered through Mommy not being around for so long with this one. She's been a part of it because she had to sacrifice also for this film," she adds.

"It's my mini me," she tells E! News on the red carpet.

"She's so cute," the reporter remarks.

"But smarter," Hayek quips. "They come smarter now. They come with an extra chip or something."
