What? Salma Hayek sold burgers on TV as 'Little Red Riding Hood'? Yep, it's true
Many of the stars we know and pay to see on the big screen today began their careers in low-budget projects, or advertising products they wouldn't even jokingly think of promoting now, which is the case with producer and actress Salma Hayek.
Could you imagine that the wife of French businessman François-Henri Pinault once dressed up as 'Little Red Riding Hood' in a television commercial for BurgerBoy hamburgers in the '80s?
And yes, we've got the video to prove it.
The Mexican girl from Veracruz, who today mixes with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood and is herself a big box office draw, was the star of her own show even long ago in an outfit that looked less like Little Red Riding Hood and more like Snow White, all while she and her grandmother rode to the burger joint while she sang: "I'm Little Red Riding Hood and I'm going to visit my grandmother; I'm going to invite her for a burger at BurgerBoy."
We've never heard Salma discuss her humble beginnings on television, but we can at least guess that if she didn't want that gem seen on You Tube, she would've likely made it disappear like other stars of her ilk might do to hide how they got their break in show business from a new generation of fans.
Some stars, like Shakira, might've even shelled out boatloads of money to keep parts of their beginning resumes out of public view. Shakira reportedly paid to own the rights to 'El Oasis de Shakira,' which she fimed in 1994 at the very young age of 17, with dark brown hair and a timid smile.
Do you think Salma gets a kick out of seeing herself back then?
We'll just let you decide:
