Salma Hayek spilled water all over Eminem at Oscars: Here’s why

Hollywood actress Salma Hayek on Wednesday surprised Eminem fans when she shared her Oscars encounter with the Detroit rapper.

Taking to Instagram, Hayek explained the story behind the expressions that she and Eminem had on their faces in some viral photos from the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday.

“In these pictures it might look like @Eminem and I are best friends, but what really happened is as he was walking offstage and I was getting ready to walk onstage, I was so shocked to see him that I spilled water all over him. If you examine our faces, I look mortified and he looks terrified of me,” she wrote in the captioned that accompanied two photos of the actress and Slim Shady.

Salam Hayek further wrote: “As I was trying to wipe it off I impulsively hugged him and I said “Nice to meet you Eminem- I’m a HUGE fan!” because I AM! But I was so disappointed that I made such a fool of myself in front of hi”.

The actress then shared a link to a Rollingstone interview of Eminem in which he also spoke about hugging Salma Hayek during the Oscars.

Eminem’s surprise performance at the event was one of the highlights of Oscars 2020 that had the world talking about the rapper’s undying popularity.
