Matteo Garrone is back with The Tale of Tales, a bold English-language horror/fantasy starring Salma Hayek – as a Spanish queen who eats a raw dragon’s heart – Vincent Cassel and John C. Reilly.
This Mexican beauty decided to become an actress after seeing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at the theater. This alone makes her one of the coolest women in the industry! Salma began her career starring in a Spanish soap opera, but the first roles I noticed her in were that of Santanico Pandemonium (Esmeralda) in From Dusk Till Dawn and Nurse Harper in the Faculty; two of my favorite movies of all time. She is not only gorgeous, but in every interview I’ve seen her in, she is very funny and witty. And everyone knows that a girl with a sense of humor is far sexier than just a pretty face. This week we honor Salma Hayek in all her Spanish glory!
