Salma Hayek came to work for Hilaria Baldwin after her fake Spanish accent controversy that pushed her and husband, Alec Baldwin, into the headlines for weeks.
The 54-year-old actress said on her social media this week that she actually felt “honored” that Hilaria had spoofed the Spanish accent.

During her performance at Andy Cohen’s Always unpredictable podcast, Salma Hayek, who is close friends with Alec Baldwin, said she felt very honored that Hilaria had forged it. The A-lister went on to say that “we all lie a little bit,” before going on to say that she made her friend happy.
Hayek says she was ‘made fun of’ by her too, although it didn’t matter much as Hayek says Hilaria is a great mom with five kids. According to Salma, she doesn’t really care about the alleged scandal. Hayek claimed she felt “honored” that Hilaria, 37, had forged that her ancestry resembled hers, namely Mexican, Lebanese and Spanish.

Hayek says the incident was quite ‘bizarre’, but at the end of the day, everyone has their own character that they have created in life to present to others. Hayek, the Desperado star, argued that the most important thing was that she was clearly a good person taking care of her children.
Salma says she understands how many people would be upset about it, but it’s not worth canceling her completely and forcing her out of the industry forever.
As previously reported, Hilaria, who in the past claimed to be from Spain, was walked out because she was not a real Spanish woman. In reality, she’s just a “white girl,” as she put it, from Boston, Massachusetts. At first she tried to say that her family was from Spain, but it turned out that her family is also from Boston.
In response to the scandal, Alec said there was a lot of “s ** t” on Twitter, saying that in order to get something good, you first had to travel through a “huge orchard of crap,” although many critics said Hilaria’s life story had a similar nature.
