Salma Hayek: Knight?

The Puss In Boots actress was among those named by President Nicolas Sarkozy to receive the Légion d’Honneur Sunday. Hayek, 45, will enter the five-tiered honor academy with the grade of Chevalier or “Knight.”

Announced in the President’s official New Year’s list, Hayek will receive a formal induction, which involves a Presidential medal pinning. Her induction will likely occur at the élysées Palace within the next two months, says a source.
