Why Nicolas Sarcozy Honored Salma Hayek ?

Salma Hayek is receiving quite an honor.
On Sunday, the 45-year-old actress was one of the recipients named by President Nicolas Sarkozy to the Legion of Honor, People magazine reports. She'll enter the honor academy as a Chevalier, or Knight.

The Latin star, who is married to French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault, will be recognized at a formal induction ceremony. A source tells People mag the event will likely happen over the next two months at the Elysee Palace and will include a Presidential medal pinning.




Women's Wear Daily reports that Hayek's father-in-law, Francois Pinault, was named a Grand Officer of the Legion of Honor, the country's highest civilian decoration.


The Legion of Honor was created as a merit award to acknowledge military personnel and civilians for service to France, People reports. Just for the record, prior recipients include Clint Eastwood, Robert Redford, Jerry Lewis and Robert De Niro.
