Botox may be the rage in Hollywood, but Salma Hayek can't stand it.

"No surgical tweaks. No Botox either," the voluptuous actress told InStyle's June 2010 issue when asked if she'd consider cosmetic surgery. "I think it is terrible, these girls in their late 20s injecting their faces and lips. One told me, 'If I kill my muscles now, I'll never get wrinkles.' Can you imagine?"

While Salma has no plans to change her looks, she has changed her name. The actress told the mag she is now going by Salma Hayek Pinault, her second surname coming from her husband, French businessman Francios-Henri Pinault.

Salma said she changed her name because her beloved daughter with Francois-Henri, Valentina, 3, was curious why she just had one last name.

"It was Valentina's request. I didn't think about it until she brought it up," Salma told the mag. " We were shooting a film and she saw my chair with my name on it. She said, 'What does it say there?' And I said, 'Salma Hayek.' And she said, 'What about Pinault? Why not Pinault?' Because here people say 'Madame Pinault.' I said to myself, 'This is who I am now. I'm starting a whole new life. I've never been happier. Why shouldn't I share it with the people who have been supporting me my whole career, who have been with me since the beginning?'"

Salma also opened up about Francios-Henri, whom she married last year.

"I love him. I ridiculously love him," she said. "He makes it easy for me. He's so open, and his family is too — so international­ — and fascinating and warm… Plus, he and I have the same interests, which is wonderful."
