Salma Hayek Adapting 'The Prophet' Into Animated Movie

Salma Hayek walks through LAX Airport to catch a departing flight on Monday (February 27) in Los Angeles.

The night before, the 45-year-old actress attended the star-studded Vanity Fair Oscar Party held at Sunset Tower.

For her next project, Salma is teaming up with the Doha Film Institute to bring Kahlil Gibran‘s classic novel, “The Prophet,” to the big screen as an animated movie.

The book features 26 poetic essays divided into chapters dealing with themes such as love, marriage, children, joy and sorrow, religion, and prayer.

“‘The Prophet’ has been an incredible source of wisdom and inspiration for millions of people all over the world,” Salma, who’s producing the film, said (via THR). “Being of Lebanese descent, I’m particularly proud to be part of a project that will present this masterpiece to new generations, in a way never seen before.”

    Now she wants to pull out the proud Arab story. She never cared about us before.

  • Alexia

    @Leila: I was thinking the same thing! She never even spoke of Lebanon until now. I’m curious to see what she does with this.

  • Liz76

    The point is she is speaking about her Lebanese heritage.

  • Liz76

    Beautiful as always.

  • Fairouz

    @Liz76: Because she is doing a film about the very famous Kahlil Gubran and she needs to win the hearts of Arabs for their support. We don’t buy it. Despite her having a full Arabic name she has only proudly spoken about her Spanish side. Equal pride would’ve been better.

  • Liz76

    Actually she has proudly spoken about her Mexican side not Spanish side.

    Maybe she identifies more with that culture. She was raised in Mecico after all. Most people from different ethnic backgrounds identify more closely with one . It usually has to do with where they were raised.

    you’re absolutely right! I’ve never heard her speakin about her Arabic heritage unless she’s in Middle East,, but out side of it ,, she’s fully Mexican !! the same with Shakira !!
