“They said to me, ‘You have to run!’ I’m going, ‘How far ?!’ “

The actor said she probably could have landed the role without the “physical test” she had to pass.

Hayek hilariously recalled the grueling assessment during a recent episode of Red table with Pinkett Smith.

“We had gone through a lot of hurdles, screen tests and a lot of auditions, and they brought these stunt coordinators from Asia, and that was the physical test,” Hayek recalls.

“Now I’m flexible, I’m nimble – but I’m lazy,” she joked. “I’ve never really been to the gym. “

“They said to me, ‘You have to run!’ I’m going, ‘How far ?!’ She recalls as Pinkett Smith laughed. “‘You have to run everywhere.’ I couldn’t even walk around the room once; i was like [panting]. »

Hayek then recalled what it was like to watch Pinkett Smith’s audition after feeling like the role maybe not for her.

“And I just looked at this woman, and I thought, This is who I wanna be when I grow up, she joked again.
