The crowd couldn’t stop staring at Salma Hayek and her ex, billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, at Sunday’s soccer game in the French city of Rennes.
But the two high-profile spectators only had eyes for each other.
“They were very together,” said one fan who sat near the couple as local team Rennes FC took on rival Sochaux. “They talked a lot during the match and exchanged tender looks. … They seemed very much in synch with each other.”
But in recent weeks, it seems the very private pair may be moving toward a reconciliation.
Their soccer outing in Rennes marked the couple’s first public appearance in Pinault’s hometown – a city of extreme importance in his family’s billion-dollar empire.
