Salma Hayek isn’t ignoring Hollywood birthdays when it comes to her famous co-stars. The 54-year-old actress just dropped a wowing photo to celebrate “The Hitman’s Bodyguard” co-star and legend Samuel L. Jackson turning 72, with the Mexican’s Monday Instagram update shouting out the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” star. Salma, who already shouted out actor Ryan Reynold’s birthday this year, posted a photo of herself and Jackson, and she was rocking one killer look, also ensuring the MCU face was included. Check out the birthday wishes below.
Scroll for the photo. It comes as Salma makes headlines for announcing she’s in France and, just yesterday, flaunting her big milky jug during a pastry-filled breakfast.
The photo, alerting fans to 2021 movie “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard,” showed an as-yet-unseen photo of the Latina lying back on a bed and with Samuel L. Jackson next to her. Salma was in an embellished, lace white wedding dress with sheer upper-bodice fabrics, also rocking a flower crown and the arm tattoo seen in 2017 movie “The Hitman’s Bodyguard.”
Salma, definitely having picked an eye-catching snap, then took to her caption to wish her co-star all the best on his special day, writing:
“Happy birthday to the magnificent @samuelljackson and get ready next summer #hitmanswifesbodyguard.”
A Spanish translation, as is standard on Hayek’s IG, was also offered. “The Hitman’s Bodyguard’s Wife,” an upcoming action comedy directed by Patrick Hughes, also features the original movie’s star Reynolds, plus Hollywood heavyweights Morgan Freeman and Antonio Banderas.

Back in 2017, both Salma and Samuel opened up on the movie they co-starred in, with an interview seeing Jackson reveal he wasn’t immediately informed that “Frida” actress Hayek would be his co-star. Speaking to Den of Geek, Jackson stated:
“I had no idea that it had been gesticulating that long. Um, I don’t know. Somebody called me and said that they’re doing this great movie. Ryan Reynolds was attached to it. And they hadn’t told me about you [Salma Hayek] yet.”

Salma’s good looks also got mentioned. “I see her, I just see her at awards shows backstage,” Jackson added, continuing: “And I was like everybody else, you know, you always look at her and she’s like too beautiful to touch. You know. It’s like, I’m gonna damage her if I touch her.”
Salma, meanwhile, has been in the news for updating fans on upcoming movie “The Eternals,” also making continued headlines for her travels amid the global pandemic. Prior to France, the star was in London.
