Salma Hayek claims people discriminate against rich men

Finally: someone is standing up for rich guys!

Actress Salma Hayek appeared on Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast this week, and welcomed the opportunity to defend her marriage to billionaire François-Henri Pinault. "When I married him, everybody said, 'Oh, it's arranged marriage, she married him for the money,'" Hayek recalled, as reported by Just Jared. "I'm like, 'Yeah, whatever, b---h. Think what you want.' Fifteen years together, and we are strong in love." Good for them!

But that's also when things started to get weird: "We're touching on a very interesting conversation," Hayek went on, musing that "there is a discrimination also to rich men. Immediately you think because somebody's rich, [they] might not be a good person. Might be somebody materialistic, might be somebody that doesn't have values, might be somebody that is even stupid or that doesn't deserve it. That in order to have a lot of money, you did it the wrong way, there is all this preconceptions, and I heard them, by the way."

Please, won't someone think of the billionaires?
