The Mexican beauty’s daughter Valentina is usually a regular on mum’s film sets, but Hayek didn’t want the four year old seeing her in action as the ruthless leader of a drug cartel in Oliver Stone’s new project and refused to take her to work.
Hayek says, “She loves to come to the set. She doesn’t get bored, she wants to be there… (But) she’s not gonna watch this movie, no. Actually it was the only movie that she was not on the set.”
And the actress doubts Stone would have appreciated having the tot bossing people around on his set.
She explains, “I usually bring her on the set and she always likes to sit right next to the monitor and she bosses everyone around. I did a movie (Here Comes the Boom) with this director, Frank Coraci, and she would say, ‘Can I say, ‘Action’ on this one?’ And he’s like, ‘Er, OK’, so she’d scream ‘Action’ a couple of times and Kevin James and I are following the orders.
“I’m doing Grown Ups 2 and also Dennis (Dugan, director) is letting her say ‘Action’ (too), but I know Oliver Stone would have not (sic) let her just come in and say, ‘Excuse me Oliver, let me just come in and take over the set’!”
