The 44-year-old actress - who has a three-year-old daughter Valentina with husband Francois-Henri Pinault - explained while she enjoys her "homey" lifestyle in Paris, her partner is a "spoilt brat" when it comes to his food.
She said: "I am a housewife. I cook every night for my husband. I am most definitely a housewife. And a good one, I must say.
"Our life is great and glamorous in many ways, and in many ways - the good ways - it`s very homey. He`s a spoilt brat, my husband, when it comes to food."
Despite being content with her lifestyle now, the Mexican-born beauty admitted when she first met Francois she "panicked" about having to move to France and become a housewife.
Salma added to Style magazine: "The first thing I panicked about was moving. I got scared. I said, `I`m not moving to Paris to be a housewife`. And he said, `Fine, we`ll be different`. It`s sort of exciting to have a different kind of marriage.
"He knew I was going to end up here but he said the right thing. Before I knew it, I was spending most of my time here, and I love it."
