Salma Hayek No Longer Engaged

Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri PinaultI think I’m going to blame this on the curse.

Just recently, Drew Barrymore and boyfriend Justin Long announced they had split after nearly a year together. This (fairly) surprising news came just months after the two looked all lovey on the daytime talk show. Now Salma Hayek, an Oprah Winfrey guest back in April, is experiencing relationship woes of her own.

Earlier this year, the Frida actress gabbed with the host about her new baby girl and her fiance Francois-Henri Pinault, a French billionaire. Although the couple had been engaged since March 2007, the two did not seem to be in any hurry to marry.

Salma told Winfrey, “After I got pregnant, I don’t know why, [but] the [ceremony] part of it is not necessary because we have such a huge commitment for each other. I don’t know that we have to go through the rituals.”

Well, it looks like the two are getting what they wanted: no ritual whatsoever. In a statement to USA Today, Hayek’s rep confirmed that the two have have called off their entire engagement:

“We are sad to announce the engagement of Salma Hayek and Francois-Henri Pinault has been canceled. There will be no further comment.”

I’d feel bad for Salma, but we all know she’ll rebound quite nicely.
