Watch: Salma Hayek-Pinault on Late Night with David Letterman

Salma Hayek-Pinault visited The Late Show with David Letterman last night and took the opportunity to explain the hilarious video circulating on the web of her freaking out about a snake, and proved her real-life bravery by explaining that insects are a nutritious (and delicious, according to her) part of Mexican cuisine.

"They are a delicatessen," she explained to the audiences delight, "Very rare." To which Letterman responded with a chuckle, "You mean delicacy. Delicatessens are not very rare at all!"

Check out the videos below.

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.
