Audio: Salma Hayek On Key To Successful Collaboration: “Listen”


Salma Hayek can currently be seen with Eugenio Derbez in the Ken Marino directed comedy “How To Be A Latin Lover.” The movie, which debuted at #2 at the box office, displayed an easygoing chemistry between Hayek and Eugenio Derbez (they play siblings in the film).  During the HTBAL interviews I asked the actress, who’ll next be seen in the highly anticipated “Beatriz at Dinner,” about the key ingredient behind a successful collaboration.

“Listen. To listen. It’s very simple. If the people are listening to each other, you can always get to a negotiation. It’s when somebody wants what they want without hearing  – number one there is no possibility for growth and then they should do monologues.” – Salma Hayek
