Salma Hayek Reveals She Was Told To 'Sound Dumber' In Many Of Her Movies

Salma Hayek is one of the most recognizable names and faces in Hollywood. She's a legend, for goodness sakes!

But sadly, like so many legends before her, Selma was once told to dumb herself down by a director.

Beauty queen Salma Hayek is reflecting on her iconic career in a new interview with "Total Film" magazine.

The actress, who will star in the new Marvel film The Eternals explained that she has often been cast in roles where she lacks the opportunity to let her acting chops shine.

“Unfortunately, I never had a lot of chances to do parts where I could use a lot of the things I learned,” Salma told the publication.

"Or you learn them and they don’t let you. I’ve had directors say to me, ‘Dumber and faster. Sound dumber and speak faster!’"
