Salma HayekSalma Hayek, Getting older in Hollywood and being Hispanic and no limitations that once were, such as Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek.

After all, they ask, when Hispanic actors never have landed a role as big as the cat takes in the animated adventure “Puss in Boots”?

“When I started, the roles of Hispanics were very limited,” Hayek said Wednesday at the Cannes Film Festival, where she and Banderas supervisors joined DreamWorks Animation to show pictures of “Puss in Boots” a “Shrek” spin-off coming this November. “The roles were very limited. There were no classes one or two of the characters he used to. Now let the cats play!’S Okay to be a Hispanic, even if you are a cat.”

“The cats were British, normally,” he said Banderas, in a question and answer session with Hayek, after the selected footage.

“I feel very proud, really,” said Banderas, its role in expanding the types of parties open to Hispanic artists. “I never did when I first went to Hollywood to be an Oklahoman. I am what I am. And fortunately, the Spanish community in the United States has grown over the past 22 years I’ve been there. There was a Hollywood explosion, which is a reflection of the society in which we live. ”

After the images show, Banderas and Hayek went to a spring along the Mediterranean beach, where they posed for photos in a giant pair of boots bearing the title of the film.

Banderas returns as the voice of the last three “Shrek”, providing the voice of Puss in Boots, the little cat with big hearts, big ideas and big ego.

A prequel chronicling Gato “ogre Shrek adventures before meeting, the film has the cat out of the law, which seek to achieve a great score.

But his plan is interrupted by the calculation of another cat, Kitty Softpaws (voiced by Hayek), who is in league with the Cat ‘friend become enemy Dumpty Humpty (Zach Galifianakis), in his attempt to beat the jack bean “and the Beanstalk” fairy tale of Jack and Jill brutal bandits (Billy Bob Thornton and Amy Sedaris).

Age is another obstacle Banderas and Hayek Hollywood feel they have skirt.

Flags proudly called his age, 50 years, while Hayek, 44, said this is the best moment of his career, with four films in the works this year and work more enjoyable than ever.

“What makes you feel old is when you’re not thrilled with life. You are not excited over what you do, and can not do well,” Hayek said. “I feel my body start – as I need glasses now, when I read my scripts I wear them, but I’m happy to wear and happy that I get to read my scripts.

“So it’s not so bad. I’m afraid. I said, ‘Forget it. At 30, over to you. And it has not been the case. It feels great with age in Hollywood.”
