Salma Hayek’s 55th birthday party looked like a smashing good time.
The actress was joined by her Eternals co-star Angelina Jolie for a fun celebration, during which Jolie smashed Hayek’s face directly into her birthday cake.
“La mordida” is a Mexican tradition in which the person celebrating their birthday has cake shoved in their face as a way to take their very first bite. Those around them shout “mordida” during the cake ritual.
Earlier this week, Hayek celebrated her birthday in a different way: by in paradise. The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard star captioned the pic, snapped while Hayek was on a tropical vacation, “Happy 55th birthday to me. Looking forward to new adventures #grateful.”
Hayek first revealed her friendship with Jolie in December 2019. She shared an Instagram photo of herself with Jolie and their Eternals co-star Kumail Nanjiani, writing at the time, "Gosh am I so lucky... I thought I was just going to be working with great actors playing aliens; little did I know, I was going to befriend amazing human beings."
