With Savages currently playing in theaters I am pretty sure most people are raving over Blake Lively. Admittedly she is incredible but for me its all about Salma and for this reason I wanted to have a look back at her 10 Sexiest Roles. Of course I could not possibly do this list without including 10 sexy photos of Salma Hayek.
Born on September 6th 1966 Salma Hayek is a Mexican soapstar who has gone on to have a very lengthy career playing everything from the token hot chick to hard hitting dramatic performances. Salma Hayek continues to prove that age is but a number as at 46 years of age she continues to upstage actresses half her age not just with her talent but her stunning good looks. So without further ado here is my tribute to the 10 Sexiest Roles of Salma Hayek.
The hottest strip scene ever? Possibly. Kevin Smith’s 1999 comedy Dogma is about an abortion clinic worker with a special heritage is called upon to save the existence of humanity from being negated by two renegade angels trying to exploit a loophole and re-enter Heaven. Kevin Smith is one of my all time favorite writer/directors and Salma Hayek just was the icing on the cake!
Dusk Till Dawn
Wait Salma Hayek playing a stripper again? Yes please! Robert Rodriguez has worked with Salma Hayek many times and can anyone really blame him? In 1996’s Dusk Till Dawn two criminals and their hostages unknowingly seek temporary refuge in an establishment populated by vampires, with chaotic results.
Dusk Till Dawn is not only one of Salma Hayek’s Sexiest role’s it is also one of the Top 10 Vampire films of all time!
Sexy and dangerous in Robert Rodriguez’s Desperado film franchise she goes from pure eye candy to much more as the films progress. Salma stops traffic in Desperado with her super hot body but in the followup film she not only brings the heat in the form of her great looks she literally starts packing heat and unloading justice.
Wild Wild West
This is one of those ‘its so bad its good’ movies. Salma Hayek and her cleavage enhancing corset was the highlight. This 1999 film starring Will Smith is the tale of the two best hired guns in the West must save President Grant from the clutches of a 19th century inventor-villain.
Never has a unibrow looked so damn sexy. The 2002 film Frida is a biography of artist Frida Kahlo, who channeled the pain of a crippling injury and her tempestuous marriage into her work. Salma Hayek delivers one of her best performances while still injecting massive sex appeal. Salma Hayek’s sexually charged lesbian love scenes set against the deep agony of her characters crippling injuries showed that Salma is not only stunning but talented and can make even the most ugly characters beautiful.
A really bad movie but Salma showed she still has the looks to stop the presses even in her mid 40’s. Co-Starring Adam Sandler I can say nothing else for the film other then a sequel is coming next year.
Fools rush in
This is a personal favorite of mine and my ladies! We have seen it many many times and it truly is a heart warming film romantic comedy. Released in 1999 it is the story of Isabel and Alex who decide to get married after a one night stand leads to a pregnancy. However, along with the marriage comes compromise of one’s own cultural traditions.
If Salma Hayek was the school nurse where I got my under rated education I would have never left! Once again with a role in a Robert Rodriguez film this 1998 teen horror film is about a group of students who think their teachers are being taken over by an Alien force.
Another really bad concept turned into an even worse movie that was offset by the fact it starred Salma Hayek and the equally stunning Penelope Cruz. Written by Luc Besson but unfortunately not directed its the story of two women in Mexico from completely different walks of life that team up to become bank robbers.
After the Sunset
An ok thriller that features sun, fun and oh yeah Salma Hayek on the Beach! Released in 2004 After The Sunset co-stars Pierce Brosnan and is the story of what happens after a master thief achieves his last big score, when the FBI agent who promised he’d capture him is about to do just that.
So there you have it my tribute to Salma Hayek. In Savages which is now playing in theaters she plays a deadly mexican mafia boss. She co-stars along side Blake Lively and quite frankly she holds her own in not just the talent department but also the ever vane looks.
Blake Lively is stunning but depite her advantages of youth Salma still steals the screen. What are your favorite roles of Salma Hayek’s? Are you as a big a fan as I am? For those who want more reason to go see the eye candy in Savages along with the great story telling I have included a sexy photo of Blake Lively below. You’re welcome!
