Eva Mendes may be a big Hollywood star, but that doesn't mean she won't fangirl out for her biggest role models, including one of her closest former co-stars, Salma Hayek.

Mendes, who co-starred alongside Hayek in the 2003 shoot 'em up action flick, "Once Upon A Time In Mexico," crept into the comments of one of Hayek's latest Instagram posts to shower the legendary actress with love and pointed out a few reasons why she is a huge fan of the star.

Mendes dropped the praise after 53-year-old Hayek shared a beautiful, fresh-faced photo to her social media feed revealing a makeup-free look. Hanging by a cactus, Hayek didn't add much of a caption but let the photo do all the speaking.

The longtime partner of actor Ryan Gosling couldn't control her reaction and dipped into Hayek's feed to show the love:

"Look at THAT FACE! Esa cara. La mas bella. Ayyyyy Dios! And you have the corazon to match that face. Pure beauty ❤️ pura belleza."

FYI, corazón refers to the heart, courage and strength in someone -- something Hayek obviously embodies to the max.

Longtime Admirer


It's not the first time Mendes has gone public about her love for Salma Hayek. Earlier this year, the "Desperado" star shared a photo from her upcoming Marvel movie, "The Eternals," and Mendes once again lost her mind over Hayek's beauty.

"Belleza!!! I don’t care about the 30 pins (although funny) but look at that Face!!!! Pura Belleza!!! Pure beauty!! Ayyy dios mujer !! So beautiful !!! Besos reina," the "2 Fast 2 Furious" star wrote.

Mendes has spoken publicly about Hayek in the past, and revealed back in 2008, "I think if there's anybody in this field that I look up to it's her ... She has really done it the right way and I respect her completely. I just saw her speak, and she's the most inspirational speaker. You never want her to leave the stage."

Gotta love the support.
