London: Hollywood actress Salma Hayek has abandoned her dream of space travel with Richard Branson`s Virgin Galactic team as she doesn`t want to take any safety risks specially after becoming a mother.
"I love scuba diving and used to dive where the sharks were, and now no more sharks. Everything became about the baby. You are in second position, or third... My dream was to go into space. I reserved my place with the Virgin (Galactic) expedition. And then I got pregnant. And now I`m a mother. So I`m not going to go," a website quoted her as saying.
The actress insists she`s "not much" of a risk-taker ever since she welcomed daughter Valentina in 2007 with her husband French fashion executive Francois-Henri Pinault.
