    Salma Hayek sleeps with her pet owl whenever her husband is away

    The 54-year-old actress and her spouse, François-Henri Pinault, adopted a southern white-faced owl named Kering two years ago after Salma responded to an advertisement about rescue owls, and the star has now said she loves her feathered friend so much she lets her sleep in the bed when her husband is “not in town”


    She explained: "I gave it to my husband as a Valentine's present and named her Kering because that's the name of his company and their symbol of the owl. And he was like, 'Well, thank you, but I know this is your own present for yourself.'

    “When my husband is not in town, she sleeps in the room with me. We have certain routines before we go to sleep. I watch TV with my iPad, and she likes to stand on the iPad.”

    The ‘Frida’ star also insisted Kering is more "curious" the most owls, according to Hayek, and has an unusual but "good" sense of taste.

    She added: "Even though owls don't drink liquids because they take everything from their prey, she likes good wine, this one.

    “[She can often be found] on my head or my shoulder, my arms. Sometimes, when she is really close to me, I can feel her rubbing against me, which is really nice. And I feel so blessed. Just being in the same room [with her], there's an energy to it, and it is mesmerising.”

    And Salma explained why her love of animals is so strong, as she said they “always make you feel welcome”.

    Speaking to People magazine, she said: "Because they don't talk, you really have to be present with them, to communicate with them, to understand them. They always make you feel welcome. They never complain.”
