Star talks terrifying and awkward sex scenes!
Salma Hayek has always been outspoken about her Mexican heritage — and now she’s claiming Blake Lively as one of her people!

“She’s totally Mexican!” Hayek, 45, insisted of Lively, 24, while promoting their upcoming flick, Savages, on Good Morning America. “She likes the food, she eats the spice. She dances like a Mexican, talks like a Mexican, eats like a Mexican, spends time with the family like a Mexican, fights like a Mexican. You think you can push her around, eh?”

The A-list ladies hit the big screen together on July 6 in Savages, Oliver Stone’s new drug war drama about two pot growers who face off against a Mexican cartel boss (Hayek) who kidnapped their girlfriend (Lively).

So how did the big-screen sirens feel about working with the legendary filmmaker?

“It [was] such an honor,” Lively gushed. “He’s an intimidating man because of his previous work. And then you meet him and he is so intense and passionate and he just expects so much out of you.”

Stone provided endless context to help his cast get in character. “We met the DEA, we met ex-cartel members and I sat down with a young woman who had been kidnapped by the cartel,” the Gossip Girl star explained. “So he gave us this incredible well of knowledge and the responsibility to tell the story in a truthful way. We were lucky to have that.”
