Salma Hayek was attacked by a monkey


Salma Hayek was viciously attacked by a monkey when she filmed ‘Frida’. The 53-year-old actress was left “severely injured” when a spider monkey named Tyson lunged for her while she was shooting the movie – in which she played famous Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, who had two of the primates as pets – in 2002.
Discussing a photo shoot she did at the time, Salma – who posed with the monkey for the magazine – explained to Vogue: “This next one is 2002 when I did ‘Frida’ and this was in Vogue and I was very proud to be part of Vogue for the first time in my life. This monkey, who was named Tyson, actually attacked me during the filming of Frida and I was really severely injured.
“But I was brave enough to let him come back and work again in the movie and then I still did a photo shoot with him for Vogue afterward.
“I was really hoping he wouldn’t go for my face.” The ‘From Dusk till Dawn’ star later starred in the iconic magazine after she was hand-picked by the Duchess of Sussex to appear in her feature last year. She said recently:”I couldn’t talk about it and I didn’t. I felt very honoured when we did this photo shoot.
