In the movie that many are calling "hilariously politically incorrect," "Sausage Party" has definitely piled on the stereotype of all stereotypes by casting Salma Hayek as a lesbian taco.

The animated movie tells the story of different types of food living together at a grocery store who think that being bought and taken home is the ultimate goal. Joke's on them — they have no idea that their purpose in life is to get eaten alive. The Mexican actress plays Teresa, the lesbian taco who falls for a hot dog bun played by Kristen Wiig.

When a reporter asked the Mexican actress what she thought when she was approached to play a lesbian taco, she said she knew she'd never get another role like this.

"I read the script," Hayek told E! News at Wednesday night's "Sausage Party" premiere in L.A.. "It was very funny. It was completely outrageous and so I said, 'Let's go!"Hayek dished that she tried her best to keep the role under wraps from her husband. "I kept it a secret until I showed him the trailer," she said. "He was like, 'What?' I was like, 'It's not for children.' Tonight, he's going to see it for the first time."
