Salma Hayek Recalls The Time Her Husband "Cheated"
Salma Hayek couldn't help but share hilarious stories of the interviews she did in the past.
On Saturday, Salma went digging into her archive of interviews and found one she was more than willing to share. She blessed the internet with one of those amazing stories of how she got up from another pitfall of humiliation.
This time, she shared the interview she had on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where she began to talk about how he caught her husband's mysterious woman. Talking openly about her husband's cheating, she said in the interview that she caught a woman named Elena asking her husband about something.
She began the interview with a back story of how they decided it was time to get their communication process straight. She and her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, decided to speak to each other using an adopted language they both had to learn from scratch. English used to be a foreign language for both of them, and their daughter pokes fun at their accent that was too thick to be considered English.
On one event, Francois told Salma of his plans to get a language coach to help him improve his English. Because he didn't speak of it again, Salma assumed he was just kidding of the thought.
On one fateful day, however, Salma read a message on his phone from a girl named Elena. She was asking him if he was ready to practice his English speaking skills. The actress of The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard recalled that she tried to play it cool and would wait until he told her about Elena.
But that night, over dinner, she couldn't help but ask. She lost her cool and confronted him saying: "Who the hell is Elena?" He kept quiet first, trying to figure out who she was talking about. This made her even more furious that she had to ask again. This time, he corrected her by saying that the name is not Elena and continued by saying that it was "Elsa."
It was an app on his phone that helped him learn English.
The app automatically sends a message to remind learners that they haven't had practice for quite some time. She got so embarrassed that they both laughed at the situation.
The actress went on to explain that the Elsa app was similar to that of Siri. It was designed to help English as a second language speakers to become more fluent at it. Either way, Salma narrated that the app didn't work.
However, they were able to clarify the confusion in their household. 'Til this day, both Salma and her husband are still trying very hard to learn the nuances of the English language. They both remain hopeful that they will soon be able to speak the language with a little less accent and a bit more confidence.
The only take away of the experience is that communication is the key to any relationship. And confronting the problem head-on is the only way to go.
