Earlier this month, and while speaking to In Style, Salma revealed that she’s got a movie script she’s penned just waiting to come out. In fact, she’s been wanting to direct it for 17 years.
“English is my second language, and I’m not a good writer. But this was too personal and too complicated for me to find a writer to do it, so I had to write it myself,” she told the media outlet. Salma’s biggest upcoming release comes as 2022-due “The Eternals,” co-starring Angelina Jolie. Scroll for the weight worries 46-year-old Angelina recently sparked.
