Salma Hayek was in MAdrid recently to finalize details for the new Alex de la Iglesia film La Chispa de la Vida which she is starring in with famed Spanish comedian Jose Mota. When the Mexican actresses plane touched down, she was shocked to find paparazzi and journalists waiting for her arrival, especially since she was trying to travel incognito, with a big hat and sunglasses covering her famous face.

But she failed to preserve her anonymity and was eventually forced to answer a quick question about her BF Penelope Cruz while little Valentina blocked her face from the flash of the bulbs. According to Hayek, her bestie is doing "very well" since the birth of her first son at the end of January. Wonder if Salma is going to be Baby Bardem's madrina? Hmm...

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
