Hi, I am Salma Hayek.
And I am going to be making some noises
I was born in Coatzacoalcos
in the state of Veracruz, Mexico.
In the Gulf of Mexico.
It's very small, but that's where the oil comes from.
It was great growing up in this place
because we all knew each other.
And there was a lot of great nature.
I speak Spanish really well.
Hola, como estan.
(speaks in Spanish)
I speak English.
I struggle with the French, but I get by.
And I speak conversational Italian.
My favorite language to speak is Spanish
because I have a lot more control over it
and I think I'm funnier in Spanish.
My favorite language to listen is French
because my husband is French.
This a tostada.
It's a tortilla that has been toasted.
It's made out of corn.
The sound of the bag opening reminds me
of some people in the theater.
I wish I had some guacamole.
They're gluten free, it's just corn.
Once in this lifetime, I got to be Frida Kahlo.
She was a Mexican surrealist artist
and she said she painted her pain
but she painted it with so much joy
because it's full of colors, her art.
Those are the steps of the ghosts of Frida
who keeps haunting me.
My family and I play a game of cards
we call it continental but it's not really continental.
If my career goes bad I can always be a dealer in Vegas.
'Cause I'm too old to be a dance girl or something.
There, that didn't go well but I got the joker.
