Bond, James Bond
Posted by Jacinda @ 04:05PM November 17
Salma Hayek is considering a role in the next Bond movie. Being asked if she isn't trying to get away from roles like that, she said: "Yes, but it's being directed by Lee Tamahori, who made one of my very favourite films, Once Were Warriors."
Frida @ Cannes or Berlin Film Festival?
Posted by Jacinda @ 04:10PM November 17
In an interview with the London Evening Standard, Salma Hayek talked about the release date of 'Frida': "This film took six years to make. I want to take my time to do it the best it can be done. We will adapt the release time to the movie, not the movie to the release time.' She is hoping to take Frida to either the Cannes or Berlin Film Festival but, perversely, seems in no hurry to show Hollywood her film-making abilities. 'No, that's what's so weird. I'm not desperate for it to come out. And I discovered I don't really want to talk about it. Everyone wants to know about my personal triumph of making the movie but to me, it doesn't feel like that. It feels like an accomplishment, but not like I made a grand thing happen.'"

'Frida' Release
Posted by Jacinda @ 03:55PM November 15
There have been many rumors on a possible release date for 'Frida'. In the last weeks, I've received tons of mails asking for official information. People are concerned that the movie won't make it in time for the upcoming award season. On behalf of all the fans, I've written to Miramax. They were very kind and answered really quickly. Their answer can be best summed up with this quote: "We're hearing good things about it. We don't have an official release date yet." So, nothing has been decided. I will keep you posted..
Frida Fashion in Harper's Bazaar
Posted by Jacinda @ 01:20PM November 12
Contributed by Joanne Santiago
The November issue of Harper's Bazaar (with Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover) features a beautiful photosession by Nathaniel Goldberg that comes along with an article about Frida Kahlo's sense of style: "Madonna collects her self-portraits, Salma Hayek will soon play her on the big screen, and this season, fashion designers are paying tribute to her unique bohemian style. Suddenly, the woman who once inspired Schiaparelli and was embraced by Picasso and Marcel Duchamp 60 years ago is electrifying the world again..."

Concert For New York City Raises Over $30 Million
Posted by Jacinda @ 12:10AM November 9
The Concert For New York City so far has raised over $30 million for the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which will use the money to help the families of victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks. The dollar figure is the sum of ticket sales, corporate sponsorship, domestic and international TV rights, merchandising, auction funds and donations made through a toll free number and the Internet. The Robin Hood Foundation expects a new stream of money to come in starting November 27, when Columbia Records releases a double CD featuring performances from the event. All proceeds from "The Concert for New York City" are going to the Robin Hood Relief Fund. To date, Robin Hood has disbursed $4.75 million to organizations helping victims of the World Trade Center attacks. Donations can still be made by calling the Robin Hood Foundation directly at 212-227-6601.
'Frida' release in February?
Posted by Jacinda @ 11:25PM November 1
There have been many rumors about the possible release date of 'Frida'. Shortly after Salma said on the Rosie O'Donnell Show that she hoped the movie would be released in spring, the Chicago Sun Times reports that 'Frida' is set for a release in February. Another newsstory seems to support this: Salma did a photoshooting for Vogue magazine and was set to appear on the cover of the December issue. But the feature story has been postponed which means that Miramax has decided not to release it in December. We will have to wait some more. However, here are 2 new promotional black and white photos.
Salma receives 'Woman of the Year' award
Posted by Jacinda @ 10:05PM October 30
Salma Hayek has been named one of Glamour Magazine's Women of the Year. Yesterday she was presented with her award by 'Frida' director Julie Taymor. Salma was accompanied by Edward Norton at the gala held in New York City. The other 13 honorees included Debra Messing, Diane Sawyer, Geraldine Ferraro, Bernadine Healy and Tahmeena Faryal of the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan. To be surrounded by such "passionate, fearless" women "in difficult times like these makes me feel very hopeful for humanity," Salma said. "I feel excited and terribly honored. I think it's important to come out to something like this. We have to celebrate womanhood, but now more than ever." In reference to the recent tragic events she said: "You just deal with it, you know. You are careful, but at the same time, you try to live your life very fully and be very grateful for the things you have."

'Frida' Test Screening
Posted by Jacinda @ 6:06PM October 23
Aint-It-Cool-News has posted a report on the first test screening of 'Frida' (October 17). The guy who attended the screening gave some very positive remarks about Salma's performance: "Salma plays Kahlo as a party monster, a drinker, a lover, a figher, an artist. It's a pretty big stretch of a role, but she does pretty good with it... possible Oscar nomination, more likely a Golden Globe." His final statement was: "I really liked it, the people at the screening seemed to like it, and if art, biographies, intelligent/creative moviemaking and/or Salma Hayek are among your particular cups of tea, you'll probably like it, too." Sounds great to me.

'The Ground Beneath Her Feet' Information
Posted by Jacinda @ 1:22PM October 20
The Hollywood Reporter confirms Salma's participation in the Salman Rushdie adaptation: "Salma Hayek is in final negotiations to star in the rock odyssey "The Ground Beneath Her Feet," producer Paolo Branco of Gemini Films said Thursday. The project, to be directed by veteran filmmaker Raoul Ruiz, marks the first time a novel by British author Salman Rushdie will be adapted for the big screen. Naveen Andrews ("The English Patient") is set to star opposite Hayek in the tale of a love affair between two Indian rock stars that spans several continents and decades. Ruiz and Rushdie co-wrote the screenplay. The English-language movie is due to shoot in the spring, mainly in London and Hayek's native Mexico."
