ALISO VIEJO, Calif. Jan. 5, 2004 — The January issue of BuyMagazine, the hot all-digital patent-pending direct response publication featuring entertainment and technology articles, as well as popular products from Buy.com, scores an ultra-exclusive interview and sultry cover with one of Hollywood’s busiest and most popular actresses, Salma Hayek.

BuyMagazine’s behind-the-scenes interview with Hayek documents her rapid rise to stardom, career highlights including her critically acclaimed work in Frida and Once Upon a Time in Mexico, and a unique look at her latest project and directorial debut of The Maldonado Miracle. The interview also offers readers a rare perspective from the inspiring actresses, about her shining accomplishments to date and creative goals for the future.

“For our January cover, we wanted to shine the spotlight on someone who’s ambitious, revolutionary and embodies the leading-edge of talent in Hollywood today,” said Stew Duncan, publisher of BuyMagazine. “Salma clearly fits that description, because she is a true risk-taker who never compromises her creative vision and stands firm with her goals as an artist. We’re excited to launch into the New Year with an explosive combination of low-price deals and entertaining content – highlighting the latest trends and hottest products on the market. Our readers will be pleased with the surprises we have in store for BuyMagazine in 2004.”

In addition to Hayek’s participation in the January issue, BuyMagazine will feature entertaining articles such as Get Fit for the New Year, Gear of the Year, The Ultimate Home Theater System and helpful sections that highlight the top picks for handhelds, PDAs and printers in 2004.

Over the holiday season, BuyMagazine granted its readers access to more than 4,000 toys, helpful sections including a Hot Holiday Picks list, a comprehensive guide to giving and the season’s hottest products.
