Hayek Strips Down in “Americano”

Salma Hayek isn’t afraid to strip down to the bare essentials…

The 45-year-old Mexican actress plays a Tijuana stripper and prostitute in writer/director/actor Mathieu Demy’s film Americano.

The tense new drama centers on a Parisian real estate agent (Demy) who ends up going to Mexico to trace his roots after his mother dies.

Hayek plays a Tijuana stripper and prostitute who may or may not have been friends with Demy’s character’s late mother.


But this actually isn’t the first time Hayek has played a stripper: She also starred as a dancer in Dogma and From Dusk Till Dawn.

Americano—which Demy calls a tribute to his famous parents, filmmakers Agnes Varda and Jacques Demy—hits theaters June 15.
