“I held it together so well, but at the end…”

Salma Hayek is a die-hard fútbol fan. If you follow the Mexican actor on Instagram, you’ll occasionally find a photo or two of Hayek showing support for the Mexican national soccer team. During a recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Hayek explained that her husband is also a fan of the beautiful game. So much so, that he owns a pro team in France: Stade Rennais F.C., AKA Rennes. Unfortunately, while watching a Rennes match, Hayek learned that her passion for the game manifested itself much differently than that of her French counterparts.

Hayek also explained that she roots for Mexican Olympic athletes because they don’t get the financial (and structural) support that athletes in other countries do.

Hayek then went on to recount the time when she snuck family members into her bedroom to watch a soccer game — while her husband was asleep.
