National Enquirer Blind Item

WHICH Latina actress has gone so Hollywood that she claims she’s forgotten how to be Mexican? The sexy star – she still has a heavy accent – has infuriated so many people in Latin America that there’s rumblings about boycotting her films!

This isn't even blind, this was a news story two weeks ago. Salma Hayek.

How the fuck do you forget how to be Mexican? What a dick.

FSP said...

Betty Hispanic?

theinternetbully said...

theinternetbully said...

@fsp that would be Betty Blanco

^^^jajaja

MISCH said...

I'm sure she's so worried.

What Chris said.

evergrey said...

Salma Hayek - I can see this being her because she's been in Hollywood for so long and she married to a French man (the French are notoriously pompous, in a good way ;)).
So I could see how being absorbed in the elite European crowd could taint her willingness to admit her heritage.

Not that it's okay, just an explanation why it thinks it her.

evergrey said...

*why I think it's her.

Dang, need more coffee.

tealily said...

Cosign Chris. She said this in a published interview, I believe.

auntliddy said...

i agree with evergrey. Its just the progression of her life.She may not have meant it in a snotty way, just kind of like how far she has drifted from her beginnings.

Amber said...

@internetbully LOL @ Betty Blanco.

Hopefully she just misspoke, and wasn't actually slighting her Mexican heritage.

NernersHuman said...

I don't think she's completely Mexican, is she? I could have sworn she was part Lebanese or something of that nature.

I laughed out loud at senor Vigoda.

Lori said...

@Nerners- Mexican is a self -identified ethnicity as well as a nationality. Salma was born and raised in Mexico and is 100% Mexican regardless of her father's Lebanese background. A large percentage of people in Mexico have European ancestry. There are many ethnic groups within Mexico, as well. There some have no spanish or indiginous anscestry at all...

NernersHuman said...

Interesting. Thanks, @Lori.

DewieTheBear said...

Not even blind. Salma "I hardly have memories of being Mexican" Hayek.

Cornbread said...

@Nerners, I absolutely cannot stop laughing at your avatar. I nearly spit my tea all over my laptop. Holy eff, that's funny.

That's all I came here to say. :)

I don't care how she meant it. It is a stupid thing to say. Iman has never said, "You know, I don't even remember how to be a Somalian." Selma made a movie about Frida Kahlo for God's sake. Now she forgets how to be a Mexican? She has said other annoying things since marrying that philandering billionaire, too, stuff about how great it is to be rich and fly all around in private jets. She's turned into a female douchebag.

yodelay said...

This is the epitome of a lazy blind from NE. It was published before! How can it be a blind? Salma saying this is like if Johnny Depp said he doesn't remember being an American. How do you forget who you are? She started her career there, its not like she left the country as a child. What an asshole!

BTW, I'm gonna try to use the word Asshole in any comment I make today. Hope a few headlines reel me in.

Maya Sambora said...

I read the article, and I don't think she ment it in the way it has been taken by everyone, but she sure is going to regret saying it!

All about Eve said...

Salma!! Sounded a little pretentious to me but I guess that's what happens when you become a pretentious billionaire

Maya Sambora said...

She also said in the article how having a wonderful husband was better than winning an Oscar. You know , the wonderful husband who Impregnated a model when he and Salma first started dating. She just needs to cut the Bull Shit and say " My husband is a Billionaire Bitches , and that's all I care about" !

Sherry said...

LOL@ Maya!

Sandy said...

"Taint her willingness to admit her heritage?" Well then she SHOULDN'T have played Frida Khalo in a movie! And she shouldn't EVER open her mouth! Or let anyone LOOK at her! Really, this is such a ridiculous statement it seems worthy of Jennifer Lopez, only she's Puerto Rican.

La di da, Salma, this must be the influence of the French (who are a bunch of assholes). She knows she couldn't get away with this crap in Spain.

Sunny said...

@yodelay
I am convinced I was hynotized to do this, but I always laugh when someone calls a woman an asshole. Even when I disagree with the assessment!

Sunny said...

@internet bully
Love senor vigoda. Nice :)

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Betty Blanco from Da Bronx.

'Carlito's Way' fans will get this.

Groovy said...

Is the lady from Modern Family Mexican?

Sylvia said...

OMG!! How can she be so stupid. Let's see how long her marriage will last and see if her attitude changes. Guess she forgot she was also a whore before moving to the states.

Unknown said...

@groovy- she's Colombian

brittiany said...

That's a riot!

That's a riot!

Bubbles said...

Did Salma Hayak's wealthy father not support her when she was a struggling actress.

brakewater said...

I don't remember such outrage when Americans such and Goop and Madonna say effectively the same thing. They hate being Americans.

g.strathmore said...

Don't worry, brakewater. Plenty of Americans hate GOOP and Madonna.
