The ability to see only goodness in people is a special gift. Such people provide unconditional support to those in need. That’s exactly what went through Salma Hayek’s head when she met Penelope Cruz in her early Hollywood days.

We have to go back to the 1990s when actress Salma Hayek was just beginning her acting career in the United States. She was already known in Mexico, her home country, but it was not easy to succeed in Hollywood at that time with a Latin accent.

Penelope Cruz, on the other hand, has become increasingly popular, thanks to roles in several Spanish television series. After a lot of patience and work, she finally managed to get a role in Hollywood, so she decided to go to the United States for 2 months to prepare for it. And although she never knew anyone, she was determined to make her way in Hollywood.

Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek's first contact was over the phone, that is how they "met". When Hayek heard that Cruz was going to Los Angeles, she decided to help her without thinking. Salma understood very well how difficult and lonely it can be to break into the Hollywood big screen. Penelope said: - I won't leave you alone!

Cruz arrived in Los Angeles with the idea of ​​staying at a hotel, but Hayek offered not only to pick her up at the airport but also told her: “You're not going to a hotel. You come to my house because this is difficult at the beginning and you will feel very lonely.”

That trust immediately created between them is evidenced by the fact that Penelope gripped Salma's hand tightly because one night she was very scared. From that moment on, they kept having each other backs all the time! Although decades have passed and both have become one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood, their friendship is growing stronger! They fell in love so much that they considered themselves sisters.

On one occasion, Penelope Cruz let everyone know what kind of person and friend Salma Hayek is! “She told me, whether I wanted to or not (because I didn’t know her) but I’m coming to her house, she wouldn't leave me alone. She was like that with me from day one. It was amazing, you know, that someone I only knew over the phone took care of picking me up at the airport. Not only that, she didn't let me stay in the hotel.”

Selma showed how much she loves and appreciates herself in 2007 at the Oscar nomination ceremony when she pointed out how proud she is of Penelope.

From the very beginning of their careers, they managed to work together on only one production - the film " Bandidas" in 2006, which was not very successful, but it gave them the pleasure to work together. Many would like to see them, side by side, on a project! Hollywood producers, what are you waiting for?
