Actress, mother, knight? Yes, you read that right! Salma Hayek will soon add a new title to her illustrious life, courtesy of the president of France.

 
Here's the scoop: GossipCop reveals President Nicolas Sarkozy selected the movie star to join France's Legion of Honor and will bestow upon her the rank of Chevalier (basically, Knight.)
 
 
She ranks among heavy hitters in Hollywood like Robert De Niro and Clint Eastwood, who have also received the honor. In the upcoming months, Salma will receive a medal to mark the occasion and a formal induction.
 
The Puss in Boots star is married to French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault and they have a daughter together, Valentina.
 
Congratulations, Salma!
