Penelope Cruz regrets grabbing pal Salma Hayek's backside during a recent
photo shoot, because it sparked stories the friends were actually lesbians.
The Spanish star insists she was sick with the flu and a little delirious
when she let her hand linger on Hayek's butt at a press conference for their
new film BANDITAS.
She says, "I grabbed Salma's a** just to keep things moving, because
everyone was a little slow. And, of course, the energy changed when I did
"There are magazine covers in Mexico describing us as these lesbians
because of that. A lot of people were saying we were lovers."
