Salma Hayek talks about her experience while filming Magic Mike’s Last Dance
Salma Hayek told Jimmy Kimmel that she ”made the mistake” of picking Adam Sandler” to deliver a speech before presenting her the star at the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She said,
“Normally, it’s during the day, but they did it special for me at night, and he (Adam Sandler) must have decided, “Well, we can go R, it’s R-rated ’cause it’s a night or something,” he says.
Hayek also stated that the “worst part” is that she “still loves him.” She then talked about her new dance film, Magic Mike’s Last Dance, starring Channing Tatum. Salma Hayek stated that she had never done a lap dance before the film, but she did mention,
