Salma Hayek says that Blake Lively “is totally Mexican.”
The two actresses star together in the upcoming movie Savages and although they did not expect to hit it off, they actually found they have a lot in common.
Salma told Good Morning America that Blake has a “lot of flavour.”
“I’m close with my family, so we would have dance parties and cook and [Salma’s] mom would bring tamales,” Blake explained before Salma interrupted.
“She’s totally Mexican yes!” Salma laughed. “She likes the food, she eats the spice, she dances like some Mexican, talks like a Mexican, eats like a Mexican, spends time with her family like a Mexican, fights like a Mexican… don’t think you could push her around, huh!”
Salma plays the head of a Mexican drug cartel in the movie which director Oliver Stone said he wrote specifically for her.
“He was worried that I had a child and that I was very soft, and it’s true, I have softened,” she shared. “But that doesn’t mean that I stopped being an actress.”
“It was a lot of fun and we had a great time doing all the rehearsing and finding the characters.”
