To celebrate Hayek’s 55th birthday, the Frida star invited Jolie to participate in a Mexican birthday tradition, which involved shoving her face into a cake.
The Eternals co-stars indulged in a fun celebration, during which Hayek released the candid cake footage on Instagram, writing “My brother @hayekstudio and me trying to teach Angie how to do the mexican mordida @angelinajolie.”
Hayek referred to the Mexican tradition of “La mordida” in which the birthday person has their face smAshed into the cake as the way to take their first bite.
Guests are meant to shout “mordida”, meaning “bite” around them during the ritual.
Jolie appeared unable to contain her laughter during the candid moment, smiling and covering her face as she pushed Hayek’s head down into the cream-covered dessert.
Hayek emerged from the cake with a mouthful, laughing as she swallowed her first bite.
Earlier in the week, the actress celebrated her birthday in a stylish fashion, sporting a lightening blue bathing suit in paradise.
The From Dusk Til Dawn star captioned the image “Happy 55th birthday to me. Looking forward to new adventures #grateful.”
Hayek celebrated Jolie’s birthday in June with a sweet photo of the duo dressed glamourously while at a Comic Con event posted on Instagram.
The actress wrote in the caption “Happy birthday my Eternal sister… Angie you are the boss.”
The pair’s friendship blossomed in December 2019, when the Mexican actress shared an image of the pair alongside their co-star Kumail Nanjiani taking a selfie.
“Gosh am I so lucky… I thought I was just going to be working with great actors playing aliens; little did I know, I was going to befriend amazing human beings,” she wrote in English and Spanish.
