"I was petrified. I had nightmares about the snake for months. I would wake up screaming. I thought I could get away with not doing it at all, but Robert [Rodriguez] was not very flexible about it. There was a point where he just said, 'OK, if you cannot handle the snake I'll give your part to Madonna.' So I said, 'OK, I'll get over the fear." -- Salma Hayek (Bizarre Los Angeles)“I was petrified. I had nightmares about the snake for months. I would wake up screaming.

Ashley Judd and Salma Hayek tangoing in "Frida." (Bizarre Los Angeles)“He [Harvey Weinstein] would let me finish the film if I agreed to do a sex scene with another woman. And he demanded full-frontal nudity. He had been constantly asking for more skin, for more sex. Once before, Julie Taymor [the director] got him to settle for a tango ending in a kiss instead of the lovemaking scene he wanted us to shoot between the character Tina Modotti, played by Ashley Judd, and Frida. But this time, it was clear to me he would never let me finish this movie without him having his fantasy one way or another. There was no room for negotiation….I had to say yes. By now so many years of my life had gone into this film.” — Salma Hayek
