Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz, and Zoe Saldana are the most influential and empowering Latinas in entertainment. The talented actresses have inspired generations of Latinas, and it’s always exciting to see their friendship. On Wednesday, Hayek blessed fans by sharing a photo of the three cuddling’s. “A circle of love, support, empowerment, and long-lasting friendship,” she wrote in the caption.
Fans were delighted to see the sweet post, with one user referring to them as the “holy trinity.” “Seeing the 3 of you together is fantastic; you have all been a significant source of inspiration in my life. Beautiful beauties both inside and out, a different user added.
The three talented women are all within the same age range, with Hayek being the oldest, 56. Cruz is 48, and Saldana is 45. They all broke into the industry around the same time and were likely against each other for roles. During the 1990s and early 2000s, Hollywood needed more substantial and diverse Latina roles.
In 2006, two stars came together in the film “Bandidas,” where Hayek and Cruz starred in the leading roles. But they had met before that when Hayek took her into her home.
In a 2022 interview with Ellen DeGeneres, The 355 star said they had only met over the phone, but when she came to Los Angeles for the first time, Hayek picked her up from the airport. Hayek told her, “You’re not going to a hotel. You’re coming to my house because this is hard initially, and you’ll feel very lonely.” “So — she took me to her house. That’s why now we’re like sisters,” she added.
