It comes after Salma’s good pal Penelope Cruz recently sung Salma’s praises on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and spoke about their ‘sister’-like relationship.The actress recalled how Salma had given her the warmest welcome possible early on in her career, and the way in which she extended her hospitality when she first got to Los Angeles.
‘I was coming here for two months and I didn’t know anyone here. And she picked me up and said, “You’re not going to the hotel. You’re coming to my house because this is hard at the beginning and you’re going to feel very lonely,”‘ Cruz recalled.
‘It was amazing, you know, that somebody that I didn’t know — only on the phone — she made sure that she picked me up at the airport and she didn’t let me go to the hotel. I love her so much.’
