oscars_7_Salma Hayek

Kahlo Hollywood! In one of her first major projects as a film producer, Salma Hayek earned critical acclaim and a Best Actress nod for her role in Frida, a biopic about the life of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. The Mexican actress – who performed the Mexican folk song La Bruja with the band Los Vega in the film – may have lost the Oscar to Nicole Kidman, but she gained Hollywood’s respect for her dramatic turn.

Best Actress, Frida, 75th Academy Awards, Nominated

She's a pop culture junkie who watches way too much television, and she still hoards magazines.
