Salma Hayek says she didn’t want to work with fellow actor Javier Bardem in The Roads Not Taken movie. She didn’t want to ruin her friendship with Javier Bardem. She always says that, if you want to spoil a friendship, you either borrow a friend’s money or play with him in a movie.
It wasn’t easy because Salma Hayek and Javier Bardem had to yell and scream at each other. She remembers the first time she came to the set. She and Javier Bardem went to have lunch and called Penelope Cruz, laughing and making faces. She watched it and then said that they won’t succeed.
Luckily, the actors were able to figure it out, and Salma Hayek agreed to portray Javier Bardem’s wife. She recalled that the next day, they left their trailers, stepped in front of a camera, and Javier Bardem was Leo, and I was Dolores. They transformed into the actors who first met on this set, just two strangers doing their job.
The Roads Not Taken is a drama film written and directed by Sally Potter, starred Javier Bardem, Elle Fanning, Salma Hayek, and Laura Linney. The movie was released on March 13, 2020, and tells Leo’s story broken down by the experiences he lived in different locations.
