Salma Hayek made a startling revelation during the Daily Show with Trevor Noah. The actress appeared on the show on Thursday, June 8, and revealed that years ago President Donald Trump went totally Hollywoodish and asked her out on a date.
While chatting with the show host, the 50-year-old Desperado actress recalled an incident with Trump that happened years ago. "He didn't try to come and grab me," Hayek told Noah. "I was in an event with my boyfriend".
The actress narrated the movie-like incident when Trump was "super nice" to put his jacket on her because she was shivering at the event. "I turn around and my boyfriend — so charming, so nice — he said hello [to Trump]. [Trump] said, 'I'm sorry, your girlfriend, I saw she was cold.' And then he kept talking to my boyfriend."
However, Trump did not speak to her the whole evening. "The whole time, he's talking to my boyfriend," she told the show host. "And then he's like, 'If you guys are ever in New York, you can come to Atlantic City, you can stay in my hotel. Give me your number, give me your number.'"
Apparently, he did not call Hayek's then boyfriend but did call her to invite her out on a date. "He's inviting me out, and I'm like, 'What about my boyfriend? Am I crazy? Are you asking me out? You know I have a boyfriend".
The Mexican actress then reveals Trump's surprising reply to her question. "He's not good enough for you. He's not important; he's not big enough for you. You have to go out with me," Trump responded.
The actress, however, chose not to reveal whether she went on a date with him or not. However, his predictions eventually turned true as Hayek broke up with her boyfriend and is now married to French businessman François-Henri Pinault.
Years have passed since that encounter but the awkwardness between the two remains the same as the Beatriz At Dinner actress has openly criticised the current president of the United States for his views on Latinos.
Hayek has previously claimed she knows Trump from a long time ago. "Known him for a long time. I don't think he listens to me, no – or to many people. You don't need to talk sense into him, everybody is entitled to their own madness. You need to talk sense into the people who are not seeing the madness," she had said during a Jimmy Kimmel interview.
