Hollywood actor Salma Hayek, who rose to fame with the 1995 film “Desperado” co-starring Antonio Banderas, recently opened up on her traumatic experience while filming the sex scene.
The actor recently appeared as a guest on Dax Shepard and Monica Padman’s podcast “Armchair Expert”, had said that she cried the entire time.
She said, “I had a really, really hard time with that.”
In the film, the love scene is done in quick cuts. Hayek said that was the best she could do among the starts and stops.
“When we were going to start shooting, I started to sob,” Hayek said.
“One of the things I was afraid of was Antonio because he was an absolute gentleman and super nice and we’re still very close friends but he was very free. So it scared me that for him it was like nothing,” she added.
“I was not letting go of the towel. They would try to make me laugh and things and take it off for two seconds but I’d start crying again,” she said.
The 59-year-old actor will soon be seen in “The Eternals”, and “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard. From Dusk Till Dawn, Wild Wild West were some other films that served her the much-needed popularity in Hollywood.
