Salma Hayek thinks it’s funny when her owl lands on people and scares them

Salma Hayek is promoting The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, out this week with Ryan Reynolds. She was on Ellen’s show from home, which Ellen is still running for some reason. I guess there was a live studio audience again but the laughing was so over the top it sounded like a laugh track. Salma had her “rescue” owl, Kerrig, with her for part of the interview. I put rescue in quotes because the way Salma has explained it makes it sounds like she wanted an owl and got one. Owls are not pets, but in London where Salma lives it’s legal to have one at home. Salma told Ellen that the owl sleeps in the room with her, which she’s said before, but that she keeps the owl out of the bedroom when her husband is home. Sometimes Kerrig will land on her head or try to attack her toes when she’s sleeping, which sounds pretty scary to me. Salma is used to it, but her house guests are not. She told Ellen that the owl has hacked up part of a mouse on Harry Styles’s head and that the owl will scare workers in her house by landing on them. She sounded really blase about that, like it’s no big deal to her. Salma switches pronouns for her owl but has previously said it’s a female owl.

On her bikini pictures
I have a trick. I go on a diet, like severe diet, for a short amount of time right before I go on vacation. I take a lot of pictures. Once I have them in the can I start eating again. I save the pictures and I start releasing them every couple of weeks so people think I stay like that, but no, I don’t stay like that.

On if her owl surprises people
She lives among the house so sometimes I forget. People come to work on the house and it’s so funny, I’ve seen really big guys, workers. All of a sudden she flies on top of them and they go “waaaa!” Not even with a snake they can get so scared, because they’re not expecting it. I find it hilarious I love it. I don’t do it on purpose but when it happens I do enjoy it.

On if the owl poops on stuff in her house
Yes. I kind of find it. The worst is when there is this ball of hair that comes out of their mouth. There was this really important celebrity [she later said it was Harry Styles] who was really excited about the owl and was hoping that the owl would go on his head. The minute he least expected it, he came on his head, but then… this ball of rat hair was on his head. He was super cool by the way even with that happening. He’s the best.

If you have a dog and it’s going to be menacing to people you put in in a room or a crate when you have people over. It should be the same with this owl! Owls are predators that should not be flying around the house! The courteous thing to do would be to put the owl in a room when people are working in your house. Instead she thinks it’s funny, which says a lot about her that she would admit to that.

Also I kind of love that she says she’ll diet just before she takes a bunch of bikini photos and then just release them over time. It’s not my job to look hot or I would take that advice. That’s a great tip for celebrities and influencers. Plus I’m sure some photoshop is involved, not that she doesn’t look great just that they all do it.

Here’s that interview:
