Earlier this year, Salma shared a stunning makeup-less selfie of herself with the Spanish star. Alongside the photo she wrote, “Good #friends are forever.” Penélope posted a similar black-and-white picture, writing in Spanish, “Good morning! #friends #forever 💕#salma." The actresses, who starred in the 2006 movie Bandidas together, have been friends for several years. Back in 2015, Salma told The Edit, “Penélope has always been my hero and my friend. We've known each other for at least 20 years."

Meanwhile Penélope, who shares three-year-old daughter Luna and six-year-old son Leo with her husband Javier, opened up about her friendship with the Frida star in 2013 telling Allure magazine, “She's one of my best friends. We call each other huevos [eggs]. It was because when we were working together, we didn't have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now. So it was a way to call each other lazy.” She added, “We slept in the same bed so many times, and it was like she was always trying to wake me up and call me huevos."
