Salma Hayek made it one heck of a Friday feeling recently, celebrating the last day of the working week with an abstract and stunning snap, one she posted for her 18+ million Instagram followers.

The Eternals star, these days making as many headlines for her starring role in new movie House of Gucci, took a break from the endless promo and gala appearances, posting a hair-whipping photo that seemed to place her in the desert and clad in a sleeveless tank. Check it out below.

Scroll for the photo. Hayek is known for embracing Instagram's most-popular hashtags, from #tbt to #sundayselfie. The Mexican, who has been gracing red carpets of late in sizzling Gucci gowns, slipped out of her eveningwear, here going basic and chic in a classic dark tank with a figure-hugging finish.

The Frida star, who barely showed her face, was photographed in motion amid sunset skies and sand dunes, with the shot seeing her poker-straight hair flicking around and caught at just the right moment. More after the snap.

A simple caption gave a nod to the weekend, with Hayek writing: "#tgif" and gaining over 130,000 likes. "Nice! Happy 2021 to you!" a fan quickly replied.

The actress has since made major headlines for rocking a plunging and gold-metallic Gucci dress at the premiere of House of Gucci, co-starring Lady Gaga and Hollywood heavyweight Al Pacino. She also donned the luxury Italian brand to the recent LACMA Art + Film Gala as she posed with 2009-married husband François-Henri Pinault.

Didn't Listen To The 'Idiots'

Salma, this year opening up on Hispanic hate in Hollywood and racial profiling she's experienced throughout her career, spoke to In Style in June. The mom to teen daughter Valentina revealed:

"Many people told me, 'You're no good, you're never gonna make it,'"adding: "What if I had listened to those idiots?"

"I did listen to them. I would cry myself to sleep, and give up, and then try again just a little bit - almost embarrassed to admit my dream of being an actress," she continued.

Not A Hot Tamale!

Modest despite those thirst trap bikini snaps, ones Salma says are "liberating" to post, the actress continued with mentions of her age. "I don't think I am some hot tamale, but I know that for my age, for the lifestyle that I lived, I'm not doing too badly. And I attribute all of this to meditation."

Hayek turned 55 earlier his year. Aged 54, she proudly told her followers she was pulling her own stunts in 2021 movie The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, co-starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson.
