Salma Hayek's Mexican heritage comes quite in handy for her latest comedy “How To Be A Latin Lover” premiering in theaters Friday.
Hayek, who shared the screen with fellow Mexican comedian Eugenio Derbez, plays a widowed mother who perseveres through her unfair work environment in hopes of creating a greater life for her son. But the daily stresses for Hayek's character become worse when her gigolo brother Maximo show up at her doorstep uninvited and asks for a place to stay until he can find a new sugar mama to provide for him.
In a comedic twist of events, Maximo ends up learning the importance of love and family over the desire for wealth and luxury.
During TooFab's interview with the actress, we asked Hayek if she ever played around with role-playing and boy did she tell us a kinky story.
“I did a game with a boyfriend a long time ago where we both took an airplane and pretended not to know each other. Like went our separate ways and then he started to talk to me on the plane and invented a whole character and so did I and it was very interesting,” Hayek said.
That was the only time Hayek ever experimented with role playing because she would much rather feel sexy dancing instead.
“It's about feeling the music and going with it and have a partner that you kind of telepathically are communicating with each other and moving around.”
But what is it about Latin lovers that attracted a storyline?
“You have to be a lover, somebody who wants to please, somebody who is happy by pleasing other people, somebody who is creative and romantic and uh, says what you want to hear,” she said. “Yes. Always yes!”
