Actress Salma Hayek recently opened up about her battle with COVID-19, saying she nearly died from her experience.
Hayek told Variety she was isolated for seven weeks in her London house after she caught COVID-19 in the beginning of the pandemic. She required oxygen to fight off COVID-19, too.
- “My doctor begged me to go to the hospital because it was so bad. I said, ‘No, thank you. I’d rather die at home,’” Hayek told Variety.
Hayek said she eventually returned to acting after battling COVID-19. Specifically, she joined the cast of Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci,” which focuses on the murder of Maurizio Gucci, HuffPost reports.
“It was not a lot of time,” Hayek said. “It was easy. It was the perfect job to just get back into it. I had started doing Zooms at one point, but I could only do so many because I would get so tired.”
