Snake Freaks Out Salma Hayek, “Grown Ups” Co-Stars

Salma Hayek may be known for dancing with a serpent dangling from her neck in 1996’s “From Dusk Till Dawn,” but her reaction on Friday when a snake appeared on the set of a press conference for her newest film would make people wonder if she indeed did the snake dance scene. Hayek freaked out after seeing the snake, screaming and climbing on her chair, as the Extra interview was turned into a chaotic scene.

Hayek, Maria Bello, and Maya Rudolph were chatting with Extra’s Terri Seymour during the press junket for the actresses’ new movie “Grown Ups” when the rather harmless snake suddenly appeared. What followed was a frenetic scene that may be deemed an inappropriate reaction from, well, adults.

While the other women also freaked out a bit, Hayek’s reaction and shrieks made her co-stars appear composed. Hayek, wearing a stiletto, climbed onto Rudolph’s chair while screaming at the top of her lungs: “Somebody do something!.” Hayek was so afraid that she had to be carried out of the set even after things have calmed down.
