My breasts are a present from God : Salma Hayek

The Mexican actress, famed for her curvy figure, used to be flat-chested when she was younger and regularly prayed for a bigger bust.

She even put her hands in holy water to try and make a miracle happen.

She said: "My mother and I stopped at a church during a road trip we were making from our home in Mexico.

"When we went inside the church, I prayed for the miracle that I wanted to happen. I put my hands in holy water and said, 'Please God, give me some breasts!'"

Just months later, Salma started to develop the breasts which have become the envy of women all over the world.

The mother-of-one added to US chat show host David Letterman: "He gave me them! Within a few months, I developed a growing spurt, as all teenagers do, and I was very pleased with the way I grew outwards."

The Ugly Betty producer recently revealed she was told she would never make it in Hollywood because her height was a "deformity". The stunning Latina star said: "I had my struggles. I am 5ft 2in and in Mexico where I am from, it was very important to be tall.

"I grew up in a world where beauty was not only tall, it was white and blonde with blue eyes. People used to say that the short thing was a deformity.

"I was really upset about my height and then one day I said, 'Who decided that it's better to be tall? Am I less healthy? Am I less capable?'"
