00:00
Hi, I am Salma Hayek.
00:04
And I am going to be making some noises
00:09
for ASMR.
00:12
I was born in Coatzacoalcos
00:17
in the state of Veracruz, Mexico.
00:21
In the Gulf of Mexico.
00:23
It's very small, but that's where the oil comes from.
00:27
It was great growing up in this place
00:30
because we all knew each other.
00:33
And there was a lot of great nature.
00:36
I speak Spanish really well.
00:40
Hola, como estan.
00:42
(speaks in Spanish)
00:48
I speak English.
00:50
I struggle with the French, but I get by.
00:54
And I speak conversational Italian.
00:59
My favorite language to speak is Spanish
01:03
because I have a lot more control over it
01:06
and I think I'm funnier in Spanish.
01:08
My favorite language to listen is French
01:12
because my husband is French.
01:14
This a tostada.
01:16
It's a tortilla that has been toasted.
01:19
It's made out of corn.
01:21
The sound of the bag opening reminds me
01:25
of some people in the theater.
01:26
(bag crinkling)
01:32
(crunching)
01:38
I wish I had some guacamole.
01:45
They're gluten free, it's just corn.
01:52
Once in this lifetime, I got to be Frida Kahlo.
01:56
She was a Mexican surrealist artist
02:01
and she said she painted her pain
02:05
but she painted it with so much joy
02:08
because it's full of colors, her art.
02:12
(brushing)
02:26
(glass clinking)
02:39
Those are the steps of the ghosts of Frida
02:42
who keeps haunting me.
02:44
(water sloshing)
02:55
My family and I play a game of cards
02:58
we call it continental but it's not really continental.
03:07
If my career goes bad I can always be a dealer in Vegas.
03:11
(cards shuffle)
03:12
'Cause I'm too old to be a dance girl or something.
03:16
(cards shuffle)
03:20
There, that didn't go well but I got the joker.
