Is Hollywood getting over Salma Hayek??
She says the movie studios aren’t calling as much lately, commenting:
“I think they don’t want me but I don’t really care.”
That is why she produced and voices a character in the animated film adaptation of Lebanese writer Kahlil Gibran‘s 1923 book of prose poetry, “The Prophet.”
“It’s meaningful. It’s hopeful. It’s uplifting. It’s respectful. It honors children,” Hayek said. “Many people tell me, ‘But they are not going to like poetry.’ Children love poetry. That’s why we have the nursery rhymes and then we don’t give it to them anymore. It’s their first language. They think in metaphor.”
