SALMA HAYEK: THANKS TO SPANISH I LEARNT THE ART OF COMMUNICATION

Madrid / Mexican actress Salma Hayek has received the Vanity Fair Character of the Year 2018 award in Madrid, where she assured, surrounded by colleagues such as Penelope Cruz, that “thanks” to Spanish she learned the “art of communication” and that in the United States the Castilian is spoken “without fear”.

Politicians, actors, directors, designers and models have gathered at the Teatro Real in Madrid to attend this tribute to Salma Hayek (Coatzcoalcos, Mexico, 1966), who debuted before general public in 1995 with “Desperado”, although there was already conquered television with productions such as “Teresa” (1989).

“I have had the virtue in my life, which is already very long, to see how Spanish is recognized in many parts of the world with ever more love, including on television. In the United States, they are using it a lot more, without fear, that this is something that when I started it was impossible to imagine”, she told the media.

A standard bearer of the #MeToo movement, Hayek has also emphasized the need to empower women, something that, she said, “is important for the good of humanity.”

“It’s tragic, unfair and stupid to take away the power simply from the respect that is given to a human being. We are human beings and we have to have at least the respect of being human. And in many places and in many ways they do not even give us that minimum respect, “the actress has denounced.

PENELOPE CRUZ

She also had a few words for Penelope Cruz, the person in charge of giving the prize to the Person of the Year 2018, for which she was grateful that she didn’t have a gender distinction, while at the same time she assured that “it feels wonderful, especially in Spain”.

“How nice that we started together, we fought together, we grew together and now we have to enjoy,” Hayek said about his co-star in “Bandidas.”

“I have shared very nice things with her, so happy to be able to give her her prize”, she acknowledges, meanwhile, Penelope Cruz, who has reminded the media how her friendship with Hayek began, long before “Bandidas.”

The actress from Madrid explained that, on one of her first trips to Los Angeles (California), she called Hayek because she saw the Mexican interpreter talking about her in an interview on a Spanish channel, something that seemed “nice and generous”.

“I got her phone, I called her to thank her and she said ‘When do you arrive?’ She picked me up at the airport and didn’t let me go to a hotel, she took me to her house,” Cruz recalled.

Along with her, they have paraded by the photocall of the Vanity Fair awards personalities from the film industry such as Alex de la Iglesia and Carolina Bang, Paz Vega, Ana Polvorosa, Sandra Gago, Silvia Abascal, Veronica Echegui, Miguel Muñoz, Juana Acosta, Javier Ambrossi or Javier Calvo.

The Minister of Territorial Policy and Public Function, Meritxell Batet; the politicians Begoña Villacis, Andrea Levy and Ignacio Aguado, the public prosecutor Pedro Horrach, or the designers Carolina Herrera, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada or Pelayo Diaz, and other celebrities such as Mario Vaquerizo or Toacio Fresh, have also attended the gala.
