The 54-year-old actress recalled being so terrified to recite an intimate sex scene with her co-star Antonio Banderas that she began crying on set. Salma Hayek recalled not being told there was a particular scene to shoot between their characters.
She portrayed Carolina in the Robert Rodriguez-directed film which followed Antonio's El Mariachi character on a vengeful quest. Salma Hayek recalled that when they were going to start shooting, she started to sob ... she didn’t know that she could do it, she was afraid.
She continued admitting that one of the things she was afraid the most was Antonio Banderas. He was an absolute gentleman and so nice, and they're still super close friends — but he was very free. It scared her that for him, it was like nothing.
She started crying, and he was like, "Oh my God. You're making me feel terrible." And she was so embarrassed that she was crying… Salma Hayek added that Rodriguez and Banderas were amazing and that the director never put pressure on her despite the traumatic experience.
