Salma Hayek is now a bunion suspect

First she had foot surgery, now she's obsessing over heels. Something's up with Salma Hayek. 

Salma Hayek is now a bunion suspect Mexican actress Salma Hayek was recently on The Late Show with David Letterman, where she answered some questions regarding being caught with bandaged feet recently. 

The star told Letterman that she had a "twisted ankle" that required a corrective procedure. But the big downer about it for Hayek was the fact that she couldn't wear high heels after her treatment.

"The worst part about it is you can't wear heels. You've never been a Mexican short woman," she told Letterman. "This is tragic."

Twisted ankle, you say? A likely story, Hayek. As an admitted lover and chronic wearer of towering heels, her chances of developing a bunion or hammer toe may be higher than that of the general population.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons reports that conservative methods of bunion correction may be the best course of action before going under the knife. Devices like bunion splints or orthotics may be an effective, non-surgical way to correct bony deformities.
