In Salma Hayek‘s new film “Like a Boss”, the star plays cosmetic mogul Claire Luna alongside starts like Tiffany Haddish and Rose Byrne. In a recent interview, Hayek explains the flashy choices that were made for her character—including red hair, gray eye contacts, and glamorous outfits. Hayek wanted to further the look by getting lip injections. “First, I wanted to Botox… my lips, which I’ve never done.” But since Botox isn’t reversible, Hayek considered fillers instead.
First, Hayek was warned that the fillers would be pretty painful, but Hayek soldiered on… until the procedure began. “He put the first needle in my mouth, and I immediately said No! Forget it! I’m done!” Instead, Hayek opted for fake teeth for her character.
