I don't preach my daughter: Salma Hayek

Los Angeles: Salma Hayek says she avoids a heavy-handed approach towards her seven-year-old daughter Valentina.

The 48-year-old actress has dedicated herself to empowering women, reported People magazine. "I don't preach to her every day. She's aware that her mommy fights for the rights of women, that there are many places in the world where they are not entitled to the rights," she said. Hayek also shared that her daughter is a big fan of Malala Yousafzai.

"She understands who she is and what she does. Because of this, it makes her appreciate her own opportunities for education. She knows everything I do for Chime for Change (the women's charity she cofounded with Beyonce) and how important it is in my life. That's all I can do. Just try to live an example of the things I believe in."
