Did You Know Salma Hayek Was Once Attacked by a Monkey?

Salma Hayek got a lot of acclaim for her lead role in the biopic Frida. I always thought it was weird because if you’re going to cast Salma Hayek just to put a bunch of makeup on her to make her less attractive, just hire Penelope Cruz, she’s already a less-attractive Salma Hayek.

Hayek got an Oscar nomination for the film, but she didn’t win even though the years before and after were won by hot actresses in make-up to look uglier. It was a whole thing for a while.

In addition to that, Hayek told Vogue that she got attacked by a monkey during the filming.

How is she still that hot? Anyway, here’s what she said about the monkey, via Fox News.

“This next one is 2002 when I did ‘Frida’ and this was in Vogue, and I was very proud to be part of Vogue for the first time in my life. This monkey, who was named Tyson, actually attacked me during the filming of ‘Frida,’ and I was really severely injured,” she described.

“But I was brave enough to let him come back and work again in the movie, and then I still did a photoshoot with him for Vogue afterward,” Hayek added. “I was really hoping he wouldn’t go for my face.”

I feel like every actor should have a good “the time a monkey tried to kill me” story.

Hayek also said she owned a monkey like that simp Ross on Friends. Antonio Banderas bought them for her after they were cut from Desperado.

“The next day was my birthday and he [Banderas] gave me this big box and my monkeys came out of it. He gave me the monkeys… They lived for a long time and very happily,” she explained.

“Mariachi was so nice to me, he was kinda in love with me; he wanted to be with me all the time and of course Carolina was jealous. That witch was awful to me; she was so possessive. She’d go crazy when we were hugging, and so we had a little bit of a (love) triangle,” Hayek joked.

Hayek made a joke about being in a love triangle with a monkey, so I’m sure some internet commenter with more time than brains will be along any minute to say that’s basically the same as bestiality.
