    Salma Hayek mediates with her pet owl

    The 54-year-old actress has a southern white-faced owl named Kering – whom she named after the company owned by her husband, François-Henri Pinault – and has said she often lets her feathered friend help her with her daily meditation


    She told People magazine: “You won't believe this. I do meditate with the owl very, very often. The minute I go deep into meditation, she stays super still.”

    The owl update comes after Salma recently admitted Kering sleeps in her bed with her whenever her husband is away.

    The ‘Frida’ star – who has 13-year-old daughter Valentina, with her husband – adopted Kering after she responded to an advertisement about rescue owls, and the two are now inseparable.

    She said in April: "I gave it to my husband as a Valentine's present and named her Kering because that's the name of his company and their symbol of the owl. And he was like, 'Well, thank you, but I know this is your own present for yourself.'

    “When my husband is not in town, she sleeps in the room with me. We have certain routines before we go to sleep. I watch TV with my iPad, and she likes to stand on the iPad.”

    Salma also insisted Kering is more "curious" than most owls, and has an unusual but "good" sense of taste.

    She added: "Even though owls don't drink liquids because they take everything from their prey, she likes good wine, this one.

    “[She can often be found] on my head or my shoulder, my arms. Sometimes, when she is really close to me, I can feel her rubbing against me, which is really nice. And I feel so blessed. Just being in the same room [with her], there's an energy to it, and it is mesmerising.”
