Salma Hayek really, really, really hates snakes (with video)

SALMA-HAYEK-SNAKESalma Hayek, Maria Bello and Maya Rudolph sat down with Extra to promote their new movie Grown Ups on Tuesday when a large snake crawled across the set sending Salma Hayek into one of the most insane panics we’ve ever seen a pair of tits go into. Shrieking and shaking she then tried to use Maya Rudolph as a human shield, clawing at her face and possibly puncturing a lung or two with her 5-inch heels when she tried to climb on top of her (at least Maria Bello had the decency to take her shoes off first).

“Somebody do something!” she shrieked as she climbed over the expendable human being next to her. “Noooooo! Ahhhhhh!” “Eat this one first!!” (pushes Maya towards the snake. Ok, that last part never happened).

Salma was then carried away by a member of the crew as the snake slithered off in the other direction. She wasn’t seen again on set for the rest of the day.

Very weird indeed since Salma danced with a huge python for her breaking role in the movie From Dusk Till Dawn back in 1996. Or was that just Quentin Tarantino making a cameo?

[Jack] kept going into his room [before I left] and pulling out toys and saying, 'Mom, I think the kids in Haiti would love this one.' He took his favorite stuffed fish and gave it to me and said, 'I want this to go to a kid in Haiti.'"

Maria Bello & Son Help Out In Haiti

Maria Bello is in the running for an Independent Spirit Award for her provocative role in Downloading Nancy and is currently co-starring with William Hurt and Kristen Stewart in The Yellow Handkerchief. The 42-year-old mother of one opened up to Parade about how she - and her 9-year-old son Jack - have made helping the recovery effort in Haiti a serious priority.

On her commitment to Haiti relief: "There's so much that still needs to be done. I've been there twice in the last month. The first time, I witnessed amputations with no anesthesia. Little kids getting no painkillers. I've been back working in a 75,000 person refuge camp where the people are still facing the secondary wave of diseases and infections. I believe tens of thousands of more people are going to die in the next few months if we don't keep our eyes on Haiti. It's our responsibility -- the media's responsibility -- to not take our eyes away."
