The 2020 Oscars had more surprises than we thought. Eminem’s shocked the world with his performance of “Lose Yourself”, but it was his run in with Salma Hayek that is the real surprise!
A very special moment occurred backstage at the Oscars between Salma Hayek and Hip Hop artist Eminem. In fact Salma Hayek was so shocked to see Eminem at the Oscars that she ended up spilling her water on him by accident.
Salma explained the photos of her and Eminem, revealing how shocked she really was to see him. “In these pictures it might look like Eminem and I are best friends. But, what really happened is as he was walking offstage and I was getting ready to walk onstage. I was so shocked to see him that I spilled water all over him.”
“If you examine our faces, I look mortified and he looks terrified of me- As I was trying to wipe it off I impulsively hugged him,” Hayek goes on to explain further.
That hug from Salma Hayek made Eminem’s long awaited Oscar appearance worth it. When asked if he had enjoyed his Oscar night, Eminem quickly said, “Absolutely. I got to hug Salma Hayek!”
Feeling terrible that she spilled water on Slim Shady, Salma quickly rebounded with, “I said “Nice to meet you Eminem- I’m a HUGE fan!” because I AM! But I was so disappointed that I made such a fool of myself in front of him.”
“But I was so disappointed that I made such a fool of myself in front of him.” But after reading Eminem’s interview after the Oscars and what he had said about her, she was at ease. “Eminem you’re the greatest!!!,” Salma told the world via her Instagram.
