The 54-year-old From Dusk Till Dawn actress made an appearance on Dax Shepard and Monica Padman‘s Armchair Expert podcast where she revealed an upsetting moment from the 1995 film Desperado with Banderas.
According to Hayek, producers failed to notify her of an intimate sex scene between her character and Antonio‘s character, with the actress saying, “So, when we were going to start shooting, I started to sod. I don’t know that I can do it. I’m afraid.
One of the things I was afraid of was Antonio — he was an absolute gentleman and so nice, and we’re still super close friends — but he was very free. It scared me that for him, it was like nothing. I started crying, and he was like, ‘Oh my God. You’re making me feel terrible.’ And I was so embarrassed that I was crying.”
Clearing up any speculation before it happens, Salma goes on to clarify that both Robert Rodriguez, director, and Banderas, “were amazing” and that Rodriguez “never put pressure on me.” — she explained that it was still traumatic for her, “I was not letting go of the towel. They would try to make me laugh. I would take it off for two seconds and start crying again. But we got through it.
We did the best with what we could do at the time. When you’re not you, then you can do it. But I keep thinking of my father and my brother. And are they going to see it? And are they going to get teased? Guys don’t have that. Your father will be, ‘Yeah! That’s my son!”
