Leave it to Salma Hayek to come out winning at her worst audition after having the worst day ever.
The actress told “The Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon” about her craziest audition which happened to be on the same day she was rear-ended, got hurt, started bleeding and got into a fight with the person who rear-ended her.
Once she finally made it to her audition, Hayek said she “was so shaken up and so upset about this day” that she “started reading and started crying and crying in the audition but they said it was brilliant.” But did she get the part?!
We’re hoping that audition was better than her first one, which you can enjoy here.

Salma Hayek’s Hot Girl Summer is officially OTT. The Mexican-American actress has taken the viral vibe (take notes: it’s a mindset, not a lifestyle) to a completely different dimension in her latest Instagram post which has left concerned onlookers with hundreds of questions.
In a recent post to her Instagram account, the actress is 1. raising questions about how waves should be used and 2. sending me on the hunt for a lavender bathing suit.
Now that you’re caught up, are you ready for a deep dive into Hayek’s recent post?
In a caption for the post, Hayek wrote that “Sometimes you just need to surrender and let the waters move and embrace you. A veces hay que dejarse ir y dejar que las aguas te muevan y te abracen. #waves.”
The caption alone raises a TON of questions. For instance, what does Salma feel like she needs to surrender to? Perhaps it’s her deep desire to appear in a classic film so she can reenact an icon scene?
You know the scenes we’re talking about.
The extremely ~sexUAL~ one in “From Here To Eternity.”
Which inspired a not quite as sexual scene in “Grease.”
The photos also show Salma in the pretty cute lavender bathing suit she has been posting about nearly all of August
Here Salma is in the bathing suit in its most recent appearance.

Julio Torres may have just achieved next level respect and stardom because all he had to do to get thee Lin-Manuel Miranda to play the voice of a tiny cactus in his upcoming HBO special was DM him. During an interview on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show, Torres hinted at the presence of some big-name cameos in his HBO comedy special, My Favorite Shapes.
The most obvious cameo that Torres could think of would be the infamous Pulitzer Prize-winning screenwriter, composer and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda playing a “self-conscious cactus.” Of course. Torres has had a successful career behind the screen thus far. Born in El Salvador, Torres began writing for Saturday Night Live, where he initially met Lin-Manuel Miranda. His most recent claim to fame was his starring role alongside Fred Armisen in the HBO series Los Espookys.
“We were lucky that some really great actors are voicing the inner spirits of some of those objects because we just needed that,” he told Fallon.
“The role of the cactus went to Lin-Manuel Miranda. I DM’ed him, being like, ‘Can you just be this cactus? This feels like it should be you.’” Wow. That’s all it takes, huh? We love Miranda for just saying ‘yes.’
“’Cause it’s like, can you think of anyone else who would play a little cactus trapped in a little glass container?” Pues, can you?
In the teaser trailer for the comedy special, we get a glimpse of the very cactus that Miranda is set to play. “This next shape that I need to show you,” Torres tells the audience through a microphone at his seat, “This is me coming in late for a meeting and immediately chiming in.”
We can’t wait to hear what the cactus iteration of Lin-Manuel Miranda is going to say.
The Puerto Rican Hamilton creator and star is on vacation in Europe right now, so we haven’t heard his comment on the new break of his latest role. Miranda and Torres have worked together in the past. Torres’ rise to fame began as a writer for Saturday Night Live. Torres wrote the sketch “Diego Calls His Mom” for Miranda’s episode as a host.
“Lin-Manuel is the lil cactus…. awwww,” tweets one fan. Why is the prickliest side of Lin-Manuel Miranda the cutest side we might ever see? Call it an obsession with succulents or just an obsession with literally anything Miranda chooses to do. Take your pick, no me importa.
Right now, fans are just tickled that Lin-Manuel Miranda appears to have no ego whatsoever.
Miranda has won a Pulitzer Prize, three Tony Awards, three Grammys, an Emmy, and two Olivier Awards. He’s also been been nominated for an Academy Award. He’s a GOAT, and yet, he’s also down to be the tiniest of cacti “trapped in a little glass container.”
“He solved the problem,” Torres said of Miranda’s willingness to play the tiny cactus.
Torres asked Fallon if he could really think of anyone else that could play the role of the cactus, to which Fallon replied, “I mean, don’t even make me thing of that. Of course not, no. Lin-Manuel Miranda!” Torres agreed–“He solved the problem.
Torres is the Salvadoran precioso you *would* want to spend time with meeting all his favorite shapes.
HBO describes the Los Espookys comedian’s new special as a worthwhile peek into his “fantastical stories and humorous anecdotes.” We can expect to meet “a plexiglass square, an oval that wishes he were a circle, a self-conscious cactus, and a Ferrero Rocher chocolate.”
We’re curious to see how Lin-Manuel Miranda could ever lead us to believe he could be “self-conscious.” This will be the truest test of his acting abilities. Just kidding, just kidding.
Tune into HBO August 10 at 10:30 p.m. for what’s looking to be an interesting night with Julio Torres.
Expect Julio Torres to be dressed in a glitter suit on stage with a glass conveyer belt shepherding strange objects his way. The teaser trailer gave us a taste of what we were expecting to be Torres dryly musing on his “favorite shapes.” Now, we know that there’s going to be some serious stardom in the shape of a cactus, and many more cameos to look forward to.
