Salma Hayek suffers from stage fright
London: She may be one of the most successful stars in Hollywood but Salma Hayek says she has stayed away from Broadway because she suffers from stage fright.
The 46-year-old Mexican actress once signed up to star in a New York stage show, but said she had to quit the project after failing to overcome her fears, reported a leading daily.
"I have really bad stage fright. There have been a couple of times where I`ve said yes to stage projects but when we`ve got a little closer I couldn`t.
Even when I`m speaking it`s severe, not just like little nerves. I almost did a musical on Broadway, but I just couldn`t. It would have been the worst musical ever," she said.
Hayek said she does not suffer the same nerves when she is shooting a film, but she is convinced a stint on stage in London`s West End may cure her.
"I don`t get nervous in front of the camera. I have my routines and get very focused and feel very comfortable. But I can`t take (to) the stage with all those people expecting something great of me.
"I think the only way I can overcome my stage fright would be here in London. I cured my phobia of snakes in (1996 movie) From Dusk Till Dawn. But the fear of the audience looking at me - that`s a whole other thing."
