Later Gaga also appeared on The Jimmy Kimmel Show and spoke about the scrapped s*x scene with Salma and told the host, “I’ll never forget, I was like, ‘OK, listen, so before we do this scene I just want your consent to do something together,'” Gaga recalled asking Hayek, in her Patrizia’s Italian accent. “And she’s like ‘OK, what do you want to do?'”
“I said, ‘okay so I was thinking, you know, after the hit gets put out on Maurizio and you get the phone call that he’s dead, that I walk over to you and kiss you,'” the singer said. “And she’s like, ‘WHAT!'” She concluded by saying, “The only reason that it’s not in the movie is because that whole scene was cut. But it was an awesome scene and she’s walking around the house and the camera was following her feet and all the cats were following her. And Salma, in order to get the cats to follow her, she put a bunch of catnip in her boots.”
“Salma’s walking around the house and the cats are following her and then we’re surrounded by cats, and we started making out and I made out with Salma Hayek,” Lady Gaga laughingly told the host. “I’m like that really annoying kid in school that’s like bragging that they made out with the popular girl but has no proof.”
