Watch: Salma Hayek is goals as she sips coffee in leopard print swimsuit: 'First coffee of the first Monday'

Salma Hayek has some serious swimwear game and knows just how to show off her hard-won curves in the best way possible.

The 55-year-old Frida actor kicked off the new year delivering some total swimsuit goals as she posed in a plunging leopard-print one-piece, soaking up the sun by a tropical pool.

Sharing the image to Instagram, Hayek showed off her figure-hugging swimwear by Melissa Odabash as she enjoyed a coffee in the picture-perfect location.

The star appeared to be holidaying in a tropical destination as she sat by the water.

She shielded her eyes form the sun with oversized cat-eye style sunglasses.

"First #coffee of the first #monday of the first month of a brand new year," she wrote.

Of course Hayek's fans were quick to comment on the candid shot, praising the star for her swimwear style.

"Gorgeous, Love that suit!" one user wrote.

"Just casually gorgeous," agreed another.

"You looking fabulous," yet another penned.

Other fans couldn't help but point out how youthful the actor looked in the snapshot.

"How the hell she is 55?" one wrote.

"Have you aged at all??? Like what fountain of youth are you drinking from??" another asked.

This isn't the only swimwear selfie Hayek has shared with her fans recently.

A few days ago, the Eternals star posted another swimsuit photo in a black one-piece swimsuit as she celebrated the arrival of the new year.

The actor was seen thigh-deep in a crystal clear sea, posing in front of some rocks as she smiled happily in the one-piece.

"May this new year bring you the awareness of your own strength. Happy, healthy 2022," Hayek wrote in the accompanying caption.

Once again fans were quick to show their appreciation of the star's swimwear game.

"So beautiful," one wrote.

"Gorgeous," another agreed.

"Your beautiful pics are a welcome distraction from the depressing state of the world," another fan added.

The House of Gucci star regularly proves she has no problem with the ageing process, celebrating her birthdays by sharing bikini selfies.

“Yes, tomorrow I turn 53. So!?” she wrote in one celebratory caption, hinting that age is merely a number as far as beach bodies are concerned.

And that certainly isn't the only time the Mexican star has taken to social media to show off her figure.

The actor cut a fierce figure on the ’gram in a cut-out leopard print swimsuit.

That followed an amazing image of herself in a black plunging swimming costume with rope detail, shared to her Instagram account.

Despite many fans praising Hayek's looks as youthful, the actor has previously revealed she is more than happy to embrace her age.

In an interview with NBC's Savannah Guthrie for Six-Minute Marathon the actor was asked about the age she'd choose to be for a week - Hayek responded with her actual age at the time, 54.

"I'm excited about my age," she said. "I don't lie about my age."

When the interviewer commented that Hayek seemed to be "possibly reverse-ageing," she explained that she was choosing to embrace her 50s.

"I like my numbers," Hayek continued. "I like being 54. It's an accomplishment."

But despite admitting to being proud of her age, the star also admitted she hasn't always been so thrilled to get older.

"You know what, I hated it when I turned 30," she admitted. "Oh my God, I had a crisis."

In a further interview on the subject the Oscar-nominated actor revealed that she was trying to lean into getting older.

“My mother always demonstrated the importance of ageing gracefully,” Hayek told InStyle last year. “I never saw her or my grandmother being afraid of getting old. And so I don’t have that fear.”

In the same interview Hayek passed on some beauty tips from her grandmother with regards to skincare. “She used to say 50% is the product, 50% is the way you apply it,” Hayek said. “So massage, massage, massage.”

Hayek isn't the only star who seemingly defies her age in swimwear, Elizabeth Hurley is also a fan of sharing a swimwear selfie to social media, having shared a whole slew of bikini-clad looks in recent years.
