LOS ANGELES, USA – U.S – Mexican actress Salma Hayek made an appearance on ‘Kimmy Kimmel Live!’ in Los Angeles this weekend wearing a feisty leopard – print suit by Lebanese designer Elie Saab.
The actress, who is of Spanish and Lebanese descent, appeared on the TV show alongside fellow actor Kumail Nanjiani to talk about their latest film, Marvel’s ‘Eternals’.
The wide – legged animal – print pants featured a single black stripe on each leg, while the fitted blazer boasted black lapels and was worn over a sheer black top with a high collar.
The film’s star – studded cast includes Hayek, Nanjiani, Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden and teen Syrian refugee – turned – actor Zain Al – Rafeea, among others.
While chatting with show host Kimmel on Thursday, Hayek revealed why her co – star Jolie smashed her face into a birthday cake in a video that went viral online in September.
When the show host asked about her 55th birthday celebration last month, Hayek said: ‘There was no birthday part. All of those people were crashers. I said, ‘I don’t want a birthday this year.’ I had to work all day. Twenty – five people, that I told them there is no birthday party, showed up anyway’, she said, referring to the party documented in her September Instagram post.
The actress then explained that it’s a Mexican birthday tradition to push a person’s face into their cake – and Jolie was tasked with the job.
In the video, a group of friends are gathered around the actress chanting, ‘Mordida!’ as Jolie pushes Hayek’s face into her birthday cake.
