Salma Hayek, who plays the role of Sofia Reyes in Fast and Furious 9, has opened up about being sick with Covid-19. She revealed that she almost didn’t make it due to the virus but is now recovering well after treatment.
The actress admitted that while filming for her latest movie last year which was released this past week on April 10th, 2019; she tested positive for a deadly virus called covid-19. After undergoing emergency medical intervention within hours from diagnosis at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles’ Westwood district where Priscilla Chan also received care during her battle with cancer – Salma made an incredible recovery thanks to early detection by doctors and all those around her support system including husband James Pack.
Actress Salma Hayek discusses her illness with Covid-19, the virus that almost killed her.
“I tested positive in the early days of this pandemic and I was really sick,” says actress Salma Hayek in a recent interview for Variety magazine. “It’s been a year since then but it is always there.”
“My doctor begged me to go to the hospital because it was so bad. I said, ‘No, thank you. I’d rather die at home’,” said the 54-year-old Mexican-American actress, who is married to Kering CEO Francois-Henri Pinault.
She had to be put on oxygen and stayed isolated in a room for seven weeks, she shared her grimaces with the world. In November of last year, she didn’t divulge that Covid-19 was what made it difficult for her to breath. It wasn’t until this month when Serena Williams revealed how awful being infected by Covid-19 felt and still feels now today even after recovering from it well over half a year ago!
She had to be put on oxygen and stayed isolated in a room for seven weeks. Last November, she shared a montage of her grimaces and funny faces while undergoing Covid-19 swabs with no mention that she was infected at the time. She spent last year recovering from it but still hasn’t regained all the energy back yet.
“When my husband is not in town, she sleeps in the room with me. We have certain routines before we go to sleep. I watch TV with my iPad, and she likes to stand on the iPad.”
Salma also insisted Kering is more “curious” than most owls, and has an unusual but “good” sense of taste.
She added: “Even though owls don’t drink liquids because they take everything from their prey, she likes good wine, this one.
“[She can often be found] on my head or my shoulder, my arms. Sometimes, when she is really close to me, I can feel her rubbing against me, which is really nice. And I feel so blessed. Just being in the same room [with her], there’s an energy to it, and it is mesmerising.”
