“Salma Hayek Tells Her Husband About Her “Double Christmas” Plans,,

I am more than ready to get into the holiday spirit! ET’s Nischelle Turner spoke with Hayek ahead of the global premiere of her new film, El Sabor de la Navidad, which she produced at the Toronto International Film Festival.


The 57-year-old actress opened up about her unique holiday traditions and why her latest project is a great way to get into the mood for the upcoming season.


Helmed by Alejandro Lozano, El Sabor de la Navidad — or The Flavor of Christmas in English — connects three separate holiday stories featuring families and friends grappling between tradition and progression and tackling issues of acceptance and embracing love as they come together to honor their shared love of Mexican cuisine.


Set in and around Mexico City during the days leading up to Christmas, the film stars Andrés Almeida, Mariana Treviño, Mónica Dionne, and Juan Carlos Medellin. 


“What a better time than at Christmastime and a Christmas movie to talk about acceptance?” Hayek said of the project. “Christmastime is also a great opportunity for us to look at ourselves and build the courage to say ‘I love you’ to the people we have a hard time saying it to.


To reunite with family and celebrate the bonds that already exist with the loved ones, and also to celebrate the new possibilities of new bonds.”
