Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek, who has always been vocal about her heritage and advocated for Latino representation in Hollywood, recently shared some valuable advice on overcoming sadness, which she believes is deeply ingrained in Latino culture.
In a throwback interview, Salma talked about how she flips the switch when feeling down. The actress believes dancing is a simple yet effective practice that can help people overcome sadness.
“Girls, when you are sad or feel like you have no strength, close the door, put on some music, and dance like nobody is watching. Until you get chills,” she said during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Hayek’s post comes after her trip to Italy, where she didn’t missed the chance to explore some of the most emblematic places in Europe and learn about its rich history and heritage.
The well-known actress visited Pompeii, an ancient Roman city that was buried under meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The actress was seen to be extremely excited to experience the historical significance of the city first-hand.
The actress also pointed out the remaining vestiges of the city, allowing a connection to its history.
