Salma Hayek was reportedly so desperate to land “any role” in friend Julie Taymorâ€™s new Beatles movie musical, Across The Universe. The actress was ended up playing 12 nurses in the film.
When the sexy actress heard her â€œFridaâ€ director was making a movie featuring the songs of one of her favorite groups, she felt she had to be involved.
Julie Taymor revealed, “She said, `Julie, what can I play? Isn’t there anything?’ There were all really young parts but I said, `OK, you can play one of the nurses.’ “She said, `Only one of the nurses?’ So I said, `Alright, you can be all of the nurses.’ I think there were 12 in the beginning and we cut it down.”
