She’s not just a celebrity anymore but a knight as well. Salma Hayek was included in French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s official New Year’s list of those honored persons who will receive the title on Sunday, January 8.
Salma, 45, was chosen to receive the prestigious Legion d’ Honneur. She will enter the five-tier honor academy with the rank of Chevalier or also known as knight. Along with the other nominees, the actress will receive the formal induction in the following two months. Based on official sources, Salma’s Presidential pinning will most likely happen at the Elysees Palace and this will be followed by a banquet for the awardees and their guests.
