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.
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.
