Actress Salma Hayek had banned her daughter, 4 year-old Valentina from the set of her film, "Savages" according to several reports.

The Mexican actress told host Jay Leno on the "Tonight Show", "Actually, this was the only movie that she was not on the set," according to UsWeekly. "I usually bring her on the set and she always likes to sit right next to the monitor and she bosses everyone around."

Hayek was confident that the film's director Oliver Stone would have agreed with her. "I know Oliver Stone would have not let [Valentina] come in and say, 'Excuse me, Oliver, let me just take over the set.' No," Hayek joked.

The movie "Savages" was released in theaters nationwide last Friday and landed at number four at the weekend box office. It grossed $16.2 million.

Hayek also shared that due to the film's violence she will now allow her to see the film now that it is in theaters. "She's not going to watch this movie," she also shared with Leno.

Last week she told Kelly Ripa on LIVE! With Kelly, "It's very sexy, this movie.  It's very, very violent so if you're the kind of people who like sexy and violence, if you like it hot, this movie is for you. But done beautifully. It's very elegant."

Hayek plays a Mexican cartel queen who kidnaps co-star Blake Lively's character in the film. The movie also stars John Travolta.

Salma Hayek has executive produced televison, ABC's "Ugly Betty," and received an Academy Award nomination for "Frida,''' a film she directed and starred in. She has starred alongside Antonio Banderas in the "Shrek" spin-off "Puss In Boots," and Alec Baldwin on NBC's "30 Rock" as his character's love interest.

Hayek's husband is French billionaire François-Henri Pinault. Pinault is the President of several companies including Gucci and Puma, and a board member for several companies including fashion brand Yves Saint Laurent, auction house Christie's and jewelry brand Boucheron. Hayek gave birth to their daughter Valentina in 2007 and the couple married on Valentine's Day in 2009.
