O Magazine interview

1 Sep, 2003

Hayek gives her thoughts on the challenges that Latin women face in Hollywood in an interview with O Magazine.

Because there was no industry or parts for Latin women when I came here, there was really no competitiveness. Jennifer Lopez and I were the first, and I think Jennifer was my partner at the beginning. I think it was important for others to see two of us, because maybe then we could be thought of as a social phenomenon. Because she doesn’t have a foreign accent, Jennifer tried out for parts I couldn’t get.
