Salma Hayek enjoys a little pampering from time to time, but there was one instance when she experienced the “massage from hell.”
The 50-year-old actress recalled on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix show that a masseuse in Austria apparently thought clothing was optional when doing his job. “I was desperate because I have some back problems, and they said, ‘We only have a man.’ I prefer to have a girl, but I was desperate. I said, ‘OK, bring him,’” Hayek shared, adding that she convinced herself that the man would be gay, which made her feel more comfortable about getting the massage in her hotel room.
Things got pretty awkward, however, when Hayek opened her eyes. “I see the hairy legs and I go, ‘Wait a minute.’ He was not wearing shorts!” she exclaimed. “I was like, ‘No, no, no, you gotta put it back on. This is not cool!'”
Hayek said she didn’t feel like she “could just run” from the situation because she was only in her underwear. “I was terrified!” she said excitedly.
When Handler asked why she just didn’t run away and not worry about being naked, the Frida star hilariously started acting out what that would look like. “If you get up, you’re completely exposed,” she told the talk show host. “Let me tell you, when you and I run, it’s very visual. Some other girls can run. You and I, there’s a lot going on.”
Hayek said the masseuse told her that some of his clients like it when he massages them naked. “Wrong client,” she recalled telling him. “Then, I sent him to my friend!”
There’s rarely a dull moment when interviewing Hayek. ET spoke with the actress in June at the Beatriz at Dinner junket, and was able to break the news that her From Dusk Till Dawn co-star, George Clooney, was officially a father of twins. Check out her adorable reaction:
