Funnyman Adam Sandler had been looking to work with Salma Hayek for some time, and the opportunity finally presented itself in his latest film, Grown Ups, in which she plays his wife. As Roxanne, a glamorous fashion designer who’s in for a bit of culture shock when Lenny (Sandler) brings his family to the lake house in his hometown, in order to reminisce and reconnect with his childhood best friends, Salma Hayek gets to show a comedic side that fans of the actress haven’t gotten to see on film before.
A prolific actress, producer and director, in both film and television, Salma Hayek is now also a wife and mother, juggling work with her personal life and choosing her projects accordingly. During a press conference to promote Grown Ups, she talked about how her time on 30 Rock was great comedy training for working with Adam Sandler and how excited she is to be voicing Kitty, the love interest for Antonio Banderas’ Shrek character, in the Puss in Boots animated feature.
