Salma Hayek will have her first movie as a superhero in Marvel’s Eternals. The actor disclosed that during the making, she and the movie’s director Chloé Zhao got into a heated argument.
Salma Hayek will debut as a superhero in Marvel’s approaching movie Eternals. Directed by Oscar-winning Chloé Zhao, Salma will be seen portraying Ajak in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. While Salma was fascinated about playing the part, she admitted she had problems with the script and had gotten into a ‘serious fight with Chloé.
In a recent interview, Salma disclosed that the discussion took place at the actor’s house and the people eavesdropping on the ‘fight’ were worried Salma might get fired from the movie.
“I had some problems with the script and we got into a serious fight at my house. We were both passionate. And she was like, ‘No, but that’s not how I designed it.’ The people outside my house were calling it a fight because we were kind of screaming. We continued to talk and talk, and it went on for a long time. The people outside were so nervous that I was going to get fired,” she told Elle.
However, both the women were influenced by their discussion. “I came out and I said, ‘Wow, I’m in love with her brain!’ That was the best creative conversation I’ve ever had with a director in my life, and she felt the same. She told me, ‘Wow! That was amazing.’ It was just complete freedom. We found our middle ground. While finding it, we came up with other ideas. It was super exciting,” she added.
Eternals had its world premiere in Los Angeles in the United States. Salma arrived at the premiere with her daughter Valentina Paloma Pinault. The actor was associated with Angelina Jolie, Don Lee, and Kumail Nanjiani among other Eternals cast members.
