The actress shared a photo of her bikini body from nearly a decade ago on Instagram appropriately for Throwback Thursday.
“This was my waist before pregnancy. Now it’s not the same but my life is so much better,” Hayek, 49, captioned her Bond Girl inspired photo.
Modeling a white two-piece and matching sheer cover-up, the stunner gave her best smolder for the camera with her wet tresses slicked back.

Hayek, who is a mother to 8-year-old daughter Valentina, previously admitted to PEOPLE that she rarely has time to work out.
“I don’t have time to exercise. I am working,” she said adding, “I’ve had some 20-hour days!”
With a hectic work schedule on top of being a parent, the star has learned to implement restorative yoga to stay in great shape.
“I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long,” Hayek explained.
“She taught me to tone [my muscles] without clenching them. You relax them and focus on the parts that need to be used, but never with tension,” she continued. “If you’re aware of your body, you’d be surprised by the effect it can have.”
