Salma Hayek Is Almost Unrecognizable In Her First Audition Tape For Mexican TV

Look at those curls! 💁

Before Salma Hayek became Frida Kahlo on the silver screen, she portrayed the beautiful but manipulative Teresa in the 1989 telenovela "Teresa." The soap opera was a hit for Mexico's TV network, Televisa, and Hayek became a star.

Nearly three decades later, Univision's "!Despierta América!" found Hayek's first audition tape for Televisa. The morning show published the footage on Jan. 22, though it just started to make its rounds online over the weekend.

A 20-year-old Hayek with her hair in tight short curls told the camera her name, age, where she studies and that she has no experience. OH, how things have changed!

Watch the Oscar-nominated actress' audition tape in the video below.
