The 46-year-old star - who has a five-year-old daughter Valentina with husband Francois-Henri Pinault - has claimed she began "appreciating" her body after putting on 50 pounds while she was expecting.
She insisted: "I gained so much weight, I got an opportunity to see myself completely disfigured in many different ways -- for a very good reason -- and I don't regret it for a second.
"That's when I started appreciating my body. The things that I used to criticize, they were not that bad after all."
The 'Savages' actress admitted she has felt under a lot of pressure from a "harsh" society which forces women to think they have to be "skinny forever".
She told Glam Belleza Latina: "We've got to fight for our confidence every day in modern life because we live in a society that is very harsh to women.
"You have to be smart and successful and a good mother and beautiful and young and skinny forever."
Although her pregnancy gave her a new found appreciation for her looks, Salma has admitted in the past that adjusting to life as a mother was tough.
"Sometimes you can't even go to the toilet alone because they are always after you. It is a massive challenge, and not easy at all, but it is also the most beautiful goal of a lifetime."
