The first intimate scene awaited actress Salma Hayek during the filming of Desperate. Antonio Banderas himself became a partner in this difficult matter
Hollywood actress Salma Hayek took part in the podcast, where she remembered how the shooting of the first intimate scene in her career took place. It happened while working on the film "Desperate" with colleague Antonio Banderas. Salma also shared her emotions at the moment when she learned that an intimate scene was added to the script without her consent.
As the actress explains, initially, when reading the script, no intimate and erotic moments were expected, it was simply not part of the directors' plans. However, in the course of filming, the writers began to notice that the main actors became so close, they had a real "chemistry" in the relationship, that it was decided to rewrite the script. When the girl signed a contract to take part in the filming, she just turned 28 years old, and this role was to become one of the most significant in her career, but the actress was not morally ready to undress in front of the camera and play a passionate scene.
“When we noticed chemistry between us, the studio demanded to add sex to one of the scenes. It was a real challenge for me, it was very difficult for me” - the actress recalls.
The celebrity said that at the time of filming, there were four people on the set: the actress herself, Antonio Banderas, director and producer. For Hayek, this love scene was the first in her career. Antonio was very affectionate and courteous - this also made the celebrity embarrassed in front of the camera.
“For this reason, right before filming started, I started crying. I constantly told everyone that I was very afraid, in particular, I was afraid of Antonio. He always behaved like a real gentleman, which is why we are still very good friends. But he was too straightforward … relaxed. It seemed that for him it was absolutely no problem at all, and I was just a scarecrow next to him. " - explains Salma.
At the moment, Hayek recalls that stressful situation with tenderness and warmth in her soul, but then she was not at all laughing. In addition to the fact that playing in an intimate scene was for her first time, the actress was still worried about how her father and older brother would react.
“I was so ashamed that I started crying again. They took it all well, but I could not remove the towel from my face. Then they decided that it was worth making me laugh, but it made me cry even more” - says Salma.
