Salma Hayek Career

She quickly landed the title role in Teresa (1989), a hugely successful soap opera that propelled her to stardom in her native Mexico. However, she left Teresa (1989) and Mexico in 1991, eager to make films and explore her talent and passion. Fans who were heartbroken spread rumors that she was having an affair with Mexico’s president and had fled to avoid his wife’s wrath. She traveled to Los Angeles. She approached Hollywood with naiveté, only to discover that Latina actresses were stereotyped as mistress maids or local prostitutes. By late 1992, she had only landed minor roles. She appeared in Street Justice (1991), Sinbad (1993), Nurses (1991), and Dream On (1991) as a sexy maid (1990).

Robert Rodriguez and his wife Elizabeth Avellan happened to be watching and fell in love with her right away. He soon gave her her big break, starring opposite Antonio Banderas in the cult classic Desperado (1995), catapulting her to Hollywood stardom. The audience was as taken with her as he had been. Following that, Rodriguez cast her in the cult classic From Dusk Till Dawn (1996). Later that year, she received her first leading role in Fools Rush In (1997), opposite Matthew Perry. It was a modest hit, and her star continued to rise in commercials and films such as Breaking Up (1997), 54 (1998), Dogma (1999), and In the Time of the Butterflies (2000). (2001).
