Salma Hayek Does ASMR With The Ghost Of Frida Kahlo And Eva Longoria Is Delighted By Sponges

The dictionary defines ASMR as “a feeling of well-being combined with a tingling sensation in the scalp and down the back of the neck, as experienced by some people in response to a specific gentle stimulus, often a particular sound.”

There are no better sounds than the voices of Salma Hayek and Eva Longoria, which is undoubtedly why W Magazine chose them as the latest celebrity installment in their ASMR series. Let me tell you… it was hilarious.

Salma opened up in Spanish with, “Hola, Como están? Tengo que se asustar porque estos microphones son may sensible.”

She first whispered the place she was born and we got tingles: Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico. She also shared that “it was great growing up in this place because we all knew each other. There was a lot of great nature.”

Then she introduced the world to tostadas, as she should.

W Magazine / YouTube

We want to give a round of applause to Hayek for bringing the right kind of tostada to the party. ???? ???? ???? ???? 

The internet was weeping in gratitude over the video. ????????

We’re not worthy. At the same time, Salma is giving us what we deserve.

Then she talked about “some people.”

W Magazine / YouTube

We’re those people, Salma. We are all about saving money and sneaking your snacks into the theater is all a part of saving that cash. Don’t tell me you’re a Latino whose mother hasn’t smuggled in food to the movie theater. Good one, Salma. ????

Salma craved for guacamole in ASMR.

The crunch crunch of Salma eating a tostada sounds so much more beautiful than my crunch crunch, you guys. It’s truly a lullaby.

Then she rolled her eyes at even admitting that tostadas are gluten-free.

W Magazine / YouTube

We don’t know where this came from. We want to know the full story of how Salma came to resent, and also feel personally obligated to announce that tostadas are gluten-free.

At this point, we’re all in awe.

The next time I have tostadas, it will feel like an entirely new, rich experience in which my soul is bound to Salma’s. Crunch, crunch.

One Latina actually tried to emulate Salma and couldn’t get through a single sentence. ????

I guess it’s a lot harder to be Salma than it looks. Also, wow, mil gracias, April.

Salma has given us something we can actually rely on in this life.

@colormejorge / Twitter

That is the purest form of lullaby that has been passed down, generation to generation. Mamis crunching away at tostadas.

Then, she educated us on the pain and joy of Frida Kahlo.

W Magazine / YouTube

She whispered into the microphone, “Once in this lifetime, I got to be Frida Kahlo. She was a Mexican surrealist artist. She said she painted her pain but she painted it with so much joy… because it’s full of colors in her art.”

Then Salma showed us her art and we have questions.

W Magazine / YouTube

Why is there no color in her art? Is it because Salma doesn’t have joy right now? By the expression on her face, that could be true. Or we’ll never know the depths of Salma’s artistic expression.

Salma swears Frida Kahlo is haunting her, you guys.

W Magazine / YouTube

The microphones pick up all sorts of sounds, including footsteps from up above. ???? 

Salma finishes up by shuffling some cards and alluding to a future career in Vegas.

“I’m too young to be a dancer,” she whispers us to sleep. But she swears she could become a card dealer.

Watch the whole video for yourself.

But don’t go anywhere yet. You haven’t seen Eva Longoria tickled by sponges since Desperate Housewives.

W Magazine‘s video with Eva Longoria is the least serious ASMR video we’ve seen.

W Magazine / YouTube

It really is just Eva being delighted and bored and goofing around some high tech microphones. She especially loved the sponges.

One fan put it perfectly: “she was just the cutest lil thing.”

@regina_mea / Twitter

You might not be able to fall asleep to the video. It’s just too entertaining to make your brain relax, but it’s worth a watch.

After Eva sets down the sponges, she opens a bag of Skinny Pop popcorn.

W Magazine / YouTube

“It actually tastes like a skinny girl thing,” she whispers. “It’s not very good.” Hot take from Eva on Skinny Pop popcorn right here.

Then Eva excitedly picks up a towel.

W Magazine / YouTube

Swear up and down, Eva rubbing a towel sounds like a cat purring. You have to listen to feel the tingle.

Then she starts making bread like a cat.

W Magazine / YouTube

I don’t know that Eva ever buried her child self. She’s having fun in everyday things, like ASMR videos with W Magazine.

And she’s keeping it real.

W Magazine / YouTube

Thank you for your service Eva. She immediately goes back to playing with the sponges and zooming them around like airplanes. ????

You have to see childlike Eva to believe it.

No ASMR experts have testified to the quality of ASMR gifted to us by Salma Hayek and Eva Longoria. If you want to hear what experts call a “near perfect” ASMR experience, give a listen to Cardi B.

Looking for a show to fill the “Jane the Virgin”-shaped hole in your heart? Well, we may have some good news! Eva Longoria and Zoe Saldana teamed up on a new series called “The Gordita Chronicles” for HBO Max.

According to Deadline, “The Gordita Chronicles” will a follow a “willful, chubby, 12-year-old Dominican” named Carlota ‘Cucu’ Castelli. Cucu “struggles to fit into hedonistic 1980s Miami as her family pursues the American dream.”

Zoe Saldana has long been a producer on “The Gordita Chronicles”, while Eva Longoria was recently tapped to direct the pilot episode and executive produce the series.

But these two powerful Latinas aren’t the only ones with their hands on this project. Dominican-American producer and writer, Claudia Forestieri is the brains behind this series.

Forestieri is a former Telemundo reporter who changed tracks and began a career in TV-writing. She has previously written for Latino-centric shows like “Selena: The Series” and “Good Trouble”. Forestieri is a self-described “bilingual & biracial TV writer of Dominican-Italian descent who was born in Puerto Rico and raised in Miami.”

Eva Longoria took to Instagram to express her elation over being involved in such a trailblazing project.

A post shared by Eva Longoria Baston (@evalongoria)

“The Gordita Chronicles” is the perfect-storm of Hollywood Latino talent that have been working to have a project like this greenlit for a long time.

“I’m BEYOND excited & honored to announce my part within this brilliant team of women coming together to create ‘The Gordita Chronicles’,” she wrote. “I’ll be directing the pilot, while working alongside the amazing and talented @claudiforest, @brigliebs, @zoesaldana, and so many more!!”

She ended the statement with a comment and the sad state of Latino representation in Hollywood. “The lack of representation and diversity in Hollywood continues to be a major focus, rightfully so, and I’m so honored to be a part of the change!”

To make things more exciting, they have already found their lead. After an intensive search, producers cast an up-and-coming Afro-Latina child actress named Olivia Goncalves.

Per Deadline: “The Gordita Chronicles centers Carlota ‘Cucu’ Castelli (Goncalves), a willful 12-year-old Dominican immigrant with a heart of gold. Cucu leaves her home and her parochial school in Santo Domingo to live in Miami and pursue the American Dream during the hedonistic 1980s after her father, a marketing executive with a large airline, gets transferred there.”

The show will focus on Cucu as she “meets head-on the challenges of being an immigrant in a strange new world with humor, bravado and some really bad choices.”

If the synopsis is any indication of the show’s promise, please count us in! This sounds like a heartwarming, unique story that Hollywood doesn’t spotlight often enough. We can’t wait to watch!

A Round-Up of the Best 2021 Golden Globes Fashion Moments

The 78th annual Golden Globes Awards aired last night, and because of the pandemic, the ceremony was like nothing we’ve ever seen before. The awards show was a “hybrid ceremony”, with some attendees joining the festivities in person and some joining virtually from their homes.

Because of that, the fashion situation was varied. While many people went full Hollywood glam, others went work-from-home casual (we’re looking at you Jason Sudeikis).

Yes, there was an actual physical red carpet in both New York City and Los Angeles (the awards were being broadcast from two cities), but many celebs opted to bring the red carpet into their homes.

Here is a round-up of our favorite fashion moments from the 2021 Golden Globes.

Anya Taylor-Joy

The Argentine beauty stunned in a beautiful emerald custom Dior gown and matching cape. Apparently, the ensemble took over 300 hours to make. Taylor-Joy was one of the many stars that decided to attend the awards show from home.

Yalitza Aparicio

The beautiful and super-talented Yalitza Aparicio wore head-to-toe Mexican designers. Her bold color-block dress was made by Mexican designer Kris Goyri and her jewelry was designed by Daniela Villegas.

Salma Hayek

The queen of red carpets didn’t disappoint this year. The Mexican-born actress wore a striking cherry-red one-shoulder Alexander McQueen gown. She paired the look with Harry Winston jewelry.

Sofia Carson

This former Disney Channel star wore a Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown on the red carpet. The Colombian triple-threat dazzled in a pale pink gown and a wine-colored cape with a large shoulder bow.

Eiza Gonzalez

Mexican-born actress Eiza Gonzalez wore a figure-flattering Versace dress to her virtual awards ceremony. She paired the look with slicked-back hair and a bold pink lip.

Laverne Cox

Laverne Cox didn’t let a home-based ceremony cramp her style. The “Orange is the New Black” star wore a plunging ruby-red embroidered Thai Nguyen gown with caped sleeves.

Dan Levy

We can’t forget about the men! 2020’s breakout star wore a mustard yellow Valentino Men’s Haute Couture suit. He was one of the many stars that opted to attend the ceremony virtually.

Viola Davis

Viola Davis channeled her roots and wore an incredible custom African-print gown made by Black-owned LA-based brand, Lavie by CK.

Lana Condor

The “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” star also presented at this year’s Golden Globes. She wore a sheer, flowing cerulean blue Monique Lhuillier gown that was embroidered with pink flowers.

Margot Robbie

Margot Robbie looked beautiful as always in a floral print ready-to-wear Chanel Spring 2021 gown.
