Salma Hayek and Blake Lively’s new thriller Savages hits theaters at midnight tonight! We caught up with the cast at the film’s Los Angeles premiere to get the inside scoop on their onscreen alter egos. “She has a very specific look,” Hayek told reporters of her character Elena Sanchez, a Mexican drug cartel leader. “She has to psychologically detach herself from the character of Elena that everybody knows to keep some kind of humanity when nobody’s watching, because she cannot show it in front of people.” Lively, who plays Ophelia in the movie, was blown away by Hayek’s performance. “She’s such a tiny lady, so to see her take control and take the power—that was really cool,” she said.

Building up your summer beach body?
