Salma Hayek Opens Up Feeling Anxious Reprising The role of Kitty Softpaws After Over a Decade
The 56-year-old actress in a recent interview with OK! shared about returning to the role of Kitty Softpaws in the movie, Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, and shared how she feels about it. It’s known to everyone that the sequel had been awaited for so long, and now that it’s happening, everyone is just overwhelmed with it.
Salma Hayek explained how she loves the role of Softpaws and is excited to reprise it once again after lending her voice to the character in 2011.
“I just love her as a character so I was excited to have the possibility to be her again,” adding, “She’s funny, sassy and she’s a cat. I love cats. I just wish I could have her moves!”
She opened up about being nervous as the first movie did extremely well even at the box office.
“I was a little nervous about it because I had such a good experience the first time, the movie did really well so I had high expectations.
However, she has a “fantastic” time with the upcoming sequel as “Kitty is sassier, bossier and her stunts are greater.”
The movie indeed is having a gap of over a decade which is why the actress feels “anxious” another reason involving being her age.
“It’s funny – I worry less about some things now but then I find myself more anxious about little things,” she shared.
“As you get older, you get more anxious. I’m more wise now, but little things that didn’t bother me before bug me.”
With Hayek’s experience, it can be said that age does give one maturity but at the same time, it makes one anxious. She also opened up about feeling nostalgic about the upcoming film.
