First of all, Salma Hayak has a pet owl. Kind of unusual. But she told Ellen Degeneres about this unfortunate one time that involved Harry Styles. She DID try to protect his identity…at first.

“There’s this ball of hair that comes out of their mouth. One time there was a very important celebrity, I will not say his name, and he was really excited about the owl and was hoping that the owl would go on his head because it was on me. He was like, ‘I need an owl in my life. How do you do that?’”

“The minute he least expected it, he came on his head but then he did the thing and this thing came out, this ball of rat hair was on his head,” 

By the end of the interview she spilled the tea that it was…“Harry Styles. He was super cool, by the way. He was super cool, even with that happening. He’s so good. He’s the best.”

As for her owl…she’s pretty independent. And often takes people by surprise. “She kinda lives among the house, so sometimes I forget. Sometimes people come to work on the house or something and it’s so funny because I’ve seen really big guys, workers, that all of a sudden she flies on top of them and they [scream]. Not even with a snake they can get so scared because they’re not expecting it. I find it hilarious. I love it. But I don’t do it on purpose. When it happens I do enjoy it…”

Salma is promoting her latest movie with Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson, “Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard”.
