“My doctor begged me to go to the hospital because it was so bad,” Hayek told the magazine. “I said, ‘No, thank you. I’d rather die at home.’”
Hayek finally returned to set last month for Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci,” centered on the murder of Italian fashion giant Maurizio Gucci.
Lady Gaga, Adam Driver, Al Pacino and Jeremy Irons also star in the film.
“It was not a lot of time,” Hayek said of the role. “It was easy. It was the perfect job to just get back into it. I had started doing Zooms at one point, but I could only do so many because I would get so tired.”
