Desperado featured Salma Hayek alongside Antonio Banderas and was released in 1995.

It was in an old interview with the Armchair Expert podcast when Salma confessed that she was dead scared to do the part.

Talking more about the s*x scene in Desperado Salma Hayek said, “It was scary because for him it was nothing and that scared me because I’ve never been in front of someone like that. In that situation, I started crying. ‘Oh my God, you’re making me feel terrible.’ I was so embarrassed I was crying. I was not letting go of the towel, and they would try to make me laugh. I started crying again but we got through it.”
Continuing more on the topic, Salma also praised the team and the actors for supporting her through the shoot. She said, “They were amazing though, they were amazing. We did the best with what we could do at the time,” adding, “They were so magnificent, this group of people. He [actor Robert Rodriguez] never put pressure on me.”
