Salma, who landed in Hollywood with dreamy eyes, soon realized that Latin American actresses were typecast in the industry and their choice of roles was limited. She blasted this attitude on a TV show and ace director Robert Rodriguez, who was watching the same at home, was so impressed that he gave her a role in his 'Desperado'. Need we say more? The hot and steamy seductress became the hottest diva on screen. She followed it up with 'From Dusk Till Dawn', 'Dogma' and 'Wild Wild West'. She was the in thing now!
