The Five Best Salma Hayek Movies of Her Career

Salma Hayek is a rather classy woman that brings a bit of flair to many movies and even seems to spruce up whatever film she’s in just a bit. She does have that classic accent that makes many people think she’s Mexican but as she’s stated in the past she is half-Lebanese, half-Spanish. Being that her father is Mexican of Lebanese descent that seems somewhat accurate and it seems to be what she sticks to. But in terms of her acting she seems to get really popular at times and then tends to fade back, not into obscurity, but almost as though she decides to calm her career down just a bit as though to focus on something else. When she come back out though, appearing on the forefront once again. She has won a few awards in her time and gained a great deal of fame, but now and again it’s almost like she takes a step back to breathe.

Here are a few of her best movies.

5. From Dusk till Dawn

For being such an awesome character in this movie you would have thought that her role would have lasted longer. In fact it almost feels like a cheat since Seth killed her with one shot that dropped a chandelier on her. But it could be that she was simply too strong for anyone to take on and her character had to die in the opening to give the others a chance to survive and therefore make a movie that lasted longer. That’s a theory at least, or it could have been that she only had time and was only getting paid to be there for so long, which meant the writers had to introduce her and then ax her.

4. Frida

Frida did not have the most pleasant life it would seem since an injury incurred while in transit at one point in her life left her with complications that followed her for the rest of her life. Upon finding someone that she can marry and be relatively happy with she desires loyalty if not fidelity and in the process she and her husband have several affairs, in one case with the same woman. Eventually however they have a falling out and when she has an affair with an artist that is very important to her husband he takes great offense. Throughout the rest of her life Frida’s injuries continue to worsen her health as she eventually succumbs to them and passes on.

3. Desperado

If you want to talk about over the top and beyond when it comes to gunfights this would easily be one of the many films that gets into the idea that a single gunshot can send a man flying nearly fifteen feet or more across a room. It’s entertaining however since the action is quite furious and the story is simple enough to follow. This was one of the films that managed to get Selma noticed the most and one of those that featured her as one of the main stars. There was a quasi-sequel to it but being as it never really went that far it’s much easier to remember this film and the fun it provided.

2. Fools Rush In

A guy making his way from Manhattan to Las Vegas, Nevada might be a little lost since the two areas are quite a bit different, as is the culture. But when he finds someone that he’s attracted to in more than one way he discovers something that he was missing in his life. The only issue is that once he gets her pregnant there’s really just one thing for him to do, marry her. That proves to be a bit problematic since the racial lines that exist between his family and hers are kind of hard to circumvent since there is quite often that feeling that love is great and beautiful, but it’s not always enough to look past culture.

1. Grown Ups

It’s great to see old friends, but it’s saddening when it has to happen over a funeral. At the very least Lenny and his school buddies from back in the day manage to get together and share some good times as they reconnect and spend some time out at a lake house in order to get back to their roots for just a little while. It’s also a good movie to show to kids that seem to have forgotten how to have a good time without a device of some sort in their hands. Old school might have been dirty, smelly, and a lot of work, but it was worth it since it taught you what life was really all about.

Her acting is pretty solid, and it would be great to see her headline more projects that make use of her talent.
