During an interview to promote her new movie "How To Be A Latin Lover", actress Salma Hayek made some juicy statements to EFE via La Prensa about how she finally got to be a part of Hollywood being a Latina and a ‘newbie’ for the American business. The Mexican actress, who also shares the big screen with comedian Eugenio Derbez, confessed she got her first part in a movie in Hollywood because of her physical appereance. The actress plead it’s a little annoying to experience what she did and confessed it’s an actual issue no one can get away from.

"If it was not for that, they would not have given me a chance," she admitted when asked if it was hard at the beginning of her career, with" Desperado" (1995) and" From Dusk Till Dawn" (1996), was valued mainly by her famous curves.

She continued saying that being a mature woman makes her feel great since now people can actually see there’s something more behind her beauty.

"It's frustrating because, if it's not for that, you do not go in. But there's a lot more, you want them to see more of that ... and no, but it's beautiful to reach this age where beauty is not so obvious. With a 25-year history of getting to know you, people see that there is something more.”

"It was always my forte and it was always what I wanted to do, if it were not for him, I would still not play comedy." Maybe Eugenio would have given me a chance because he really knows me.

On the other hand, Eugenio Derbez, 55-year-old Mexican comedian is Maximo in this new movie. His character is a "gigolo" who comes to live with his sister (Hayek) after being abandoned by his multi-million-dollar old couple.

In the film, Hayek plays a mother who stayed widowed years ago and tries to persevere in her work as an architect, although in her company they do not give her the opportunities she believes she deserves.

In addition, the return of his brother to his day to day, although perceived as a nuisance at the beginning, will bring positive changes in his behavior, both with others and in his office.

"How To Be A Latin Lover" also stars Rob Lowe, Kristen Bell and Raquel Welch. The film will hit theaters on April 27 and is set to be a great moment for the Latin American cinema.
