SALMA HAYEK AND PENELOPE CRUZ: FRIENDS INDEED
We were really annoyed by those rumors about Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz being MORE than just friends simply because they like to hang out together. Hey, they’re not gay, they’re FRIENDS! And apparently Salma is really a standup girl and loyal to people she cares about. Salma has been tirelessly campaigning and verbally supporting both Penelope and another friend –Adrianna Barraza– to get them award show recognition, and hopefully Oscar nominations. Salma feels that Penelope’s role in Volver and Adrianna’s supporting role in Babel both deserve Hollywood’s attention and she promotes them at every opportunity. Not many actresses go to bat for other actresses like that.
