In her remarks, Hayek recalled 2003, when both actresses were nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars for their performances in “Frida” and “Chicago”, Entertainment Weekly reported.

“It was annoying because at some point I would go, I wish she wins, she’s so amazing,” Hayek said.

Then Hayek shared a more revealing story about a wardrobe mishap that had Zellweger coming to the rescue.

“And even the night before when my big butt exploded the seams of my Oscar dress and I had no dress for the Oscars, she ended up giving me one of her dresses that, thank God, was wide here [gestured around her butt] and stretchy here [gestured around her breasts]. That’s what I wore for that night,” Hayek recalled.

“I really wish that they would have a tie so that we could both win but we both lost,” Hayek added. That year, Nicole Kidman took home the award for her performance in “The Hours”.
