Salma Hayek is pretty busy, and this could explain why the actress isn't a common face on the red carpet anymore.

For the past few years, Salma has been doting on her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, and daughter Valentina Pinault. And when she's not performing household duties, the "Spy Kids" star has her hands full with charity events. Perhaps this explains why the Good Samaritan has bid adieu of sorts to Hollywood.

While promoting her latest film, "The Prophet", the actress said, "I think they [Hollywood Studios] don't want me but I don't really care."

"The Prophet", an animated movie adapted to screen, is based on Kahlil Gibran's book of the same name.

This is Salma's newest venture as a producer after her long hiatus from Hollywood. While the actress has not marked her presence in Hollywood for a long time, she revealed that she has other plans.

"I've been getting awards from different places for the humanitarian work and I've had a lot of movies come out. Then there is my husband (French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault) also who takes me to many places. There's that stuff too and I've just been busy with life," reported Fox News

The actress' distance from Hollywood has perhaps led her to politics. Salma has been one of the most outspoken celebrities about the 2016 American Presidential race. She has often criticised Donald Trump over his immigration stance. In the past, she has said that racism in America is the "biggest elephant in the room."

Salma also spoke about life in 40s and termed it as an adventure. "The only thing that is tough about the 40s is when you haven't had a child. And the men today are terrible because when you are coming to the 40s they ... start going away. But you know what? (Not) the good ones," she said.

"The Prophet" will release on Thursday, 7 August, in the US.
