In an elegant black dress, Hayek said it was a day of immense joy for her, but also of “healing” for a “terrifying” episode from her past. The actress explained that, about two years after arriving in the United States, she suffered an attack with a couple of friends on Hollywood Boulevard, when a man attacked them with a knife.

The actress and her friends fled as best they could and no one helped them until two people managed to reduce the attacker.

“Why am I telling you this story? Because every time I think of Hollywood Boulevard that’s what I remember. And the truth is that that night when I went home I said to myself, ‘What am I doing here? Nobody wants me to be here. They almost killed me today, ‘”he said.

And he added: “I remember that once I went to the cinema and someone hit me on the back of my chair and said: ‘Mexican, don’t sit in front of me. Go back to your country‘. I remember again I was queuing at a coffee shop and someone grabbed my arm, pulled me out of the line and said: ‘I’m not going to line up behind a Mexican‘”he said.

When they told him to go

Hayek also reported that Hollywood studios believed that she would never have a chance in the United States and that is why they suggested that she return to Mexico to make soap operas. “But I stayed here,” he said.

At the ceremony he assured: “I want to say to all who are here, my dear fans, that it was you who gave me the courage to stay. Although they did not know me in the Hollywood studios, all Latinos knew who I was, They understood that I had come with dreams like them. These fans have been with me for 37 years. In the hard times, they gave me the courage, “he said.
