Remember the 33 Chilean miners that were trapped underground for 69 days?

Like, literally trapped, about 2,000 feet beneath the Earth’s surface with hardly any food or electricity.

In 2010, everyone was talking about it. The collapse sparked an international media frenzy.

People cringed when they found out the miners stayed alive by consuming:

And waited for their loved ones to be rescued.

And soon we discovered news about an affair!

When miner Yonni Barrios was rescued, the woman who greeted him was his mistress, not his wife. Yikes!

Eventually, all the miners were rescued and Chile celebrated like crazy.

Salma Hayek Speaks Out About Filming The Sex Scene In ‘Desperado’ Calls It Traumatic

Salma Hayek is not putting her efforts of the #MeToo movement behind her. In fact, her most recent disclosure about her experience filming the 1995 movie Desperado proves she has yet to lose momentum. While the graphic film grossed $25.4 million in the United States box office and received rave reviews, Hayek says it wasn’t all great.

During a recent appearance on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast, Hayek opened up about her breakout role.

Speaking about her experience Hayek explained that she had not known at the time that she did not know she had been signedup to film a sex scene with costar Antonio Banderas.

“So, when we were going to start shooting, I started to sob, ‘I don’t know that I can do it. I’m afraid,'” Hayek said in the interview with Shepard. “One of the things I was afraid of was Antonio — he was an absolute gentleman and so nice, and we’re still super close friends — but he was very free. It scared me that for him, it was like nothing. I started crying, and he was like, ‘Oh my God. You’re making me feel terrible.’ And I was so embarrassed that I was crying.”

Speaking more about the experience, Hayek underlined that Banderas and director Robert Rodriguez tried their best to make her feel comfortable on set. She also added that she felt as if Rodriguez “never put pressure” on her.

Still, Hayek says that the experience was traumatic.

“I was not letting go of the towel,” Hayek explained. “They would try to make me laugh. I would take it off for two seconds and start crying again. But we got through it. We did the best with what we could do at the time.”

“When you’re not you, then you can do it. But I keep thinking of my father and my brother,” she went onto explain. “And are they going to see it? And are they going to get teased? Guys don’t have that. Your father will be, ‘Yeah! That’s my son!'”

Hayek and Banderas have remained friends since filming and they have gone on to star in five other projects.

In fact, just last year, Hayek presented Banderas with an award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Banderas was honored for his role in Pain & Glory with the International Star Award.

Chilean Filmmaker Pablo Larraín Is Making a Movie About Princess Diana Starring Kristen Stewart

Chilean Filmmaker Pablo Larraín Is Making a Movie About Princess Diana Starring Kristen Stewart

A first-look photo of Kristen Stewart playing Princess Diana in the upcoming movie “Spencer”, directed by Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín, have surfaced. And the internet is shook. And for good reason.

The internet is abuzz with excitement over the uncanny resemblance between the late Princess Diana and “Twilight” alum, Kristin Stewart.

In this biopic, the thrust of the story will be centered on the dissolution of Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles.

According to the production company, the synopsis is as follows: “December, 1991: The Prince and Princess of Wales’ marriage has long since grown cold. Though rumors of affairs and a divorce abound, peace is ordained for the Christmas festivities at Sandringham Estate. There’s eating and drinking, shooting and hunting. Diana knows the game. This year, things will be a whole lot different.”

In a previous interview with Deadline, Larraín explained the (somewhat unconventional) casting choice of Kristin Stewart.

“To do this well, you need something very important in film, which is mystery,” Larraín said. “Kristen can be many things, and she can be very mysterious and very fragile an ultimately very strong as well, which is what we need. The combination of those elements made me think of her.”

And while many fans of Diana are skeptical of how Kristen Stewart will approach this iconic character, Larraín seems to have a great amount of confidence in her. “The way she responded to the script and how she is approaching the character, it’s very beautiful to see” he said. “I think she’s going to do something stunning and intriguing at the same time.”

Pablo Larraín initially made a splash in Hollywood with his English-language debut, “Jackie”–the 2016 biopic of Jacquelin Kennedy-Onassis.

That film, too centered on a beloved and troubled public female figure. He previously made numerous acclaimed Spanish-language films, including the Gael García Bernal vehicles, “No” and “Neruda”.

This time, Larraín explained that he was attracted to this particular story because of its unorthodox heroine. “We all grew up, at least I did in my generation, reading and understanding what a fairy tale is,” he told Deadline.

“Usually, the prince comes and finds the princess, invites her to become his wife and eventually she becomes queen. That is the fairy tale. When someone decides not to be the queen, and says, I’d rather go and be myself, it’s a big big decision, a fairy tale upside down.”

Notably, interest in Princess Diana’s life has picked up in recent months.

Not only did the latest season of “The Crown” heavily feature a young, troubled Princess Diana in the throws of emotional distress, but spectators have not been able to held but notice the parallels between Princess Diana and Meghan Markle–both of whom had a fraught relationship with both the Royal Family and the British press.

It is also worth noting that the 25th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death will be coming up next year in 2022. We hope “Spencer” does her justice.
