Salma Hayek ate silkworms and a deep-fried frog on Watch What Happens Live. The 48-year-old actress displayed her adventurous palate as she took part in a segment titled ‘Will Salma Eat It?’ on Andy Cohen’s chat show, which saw her presented with mystery foods.
When given the deep-fried frog, Salma – who is married to French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault – said: ”I eat them all the time. I live in France. And this is very common French food. Usually they’re not this greasy.”
Stir-fried silk worms, jalapeno peppers and spray cheese were all eaten by the actress, although after trying gefilte fish she said: ”I’ll stick with the worms. She added: ”This is so scary because they’ll find out I eat just about anything. But not onions!”
In Salma’s new film Tale of Tales, her character eats a serpent’s heart, and the actress previously revealed her daughter Valentina, seven, came up with a solution to help her repeatedly bite the prop – which was made of sweets and pasta – without being sick.
She said: ”She gives the best notes.” Salma explained that Valentina saved her from vomiting by telling her to keep ”taking bites from the front (of the heart) and then spitting them out.”
