When you're as busy as actress-producer-director-mom Salma Hayek
is, it helps to have a supporter like Mia Maestro
. "Salma will conquer, no doubt," Maestro told People
of her buddy's work ethic. Likewise, Hayek backs up her friend, casting Maestro in projects ranging from a Prince video to Frida
. But, it's not just work for the pulchritudinous pair. Hayek "has a tremendous joy for life," says Maestro, and it shows: she and Hayek are spotted sharing girl talk on red carpets worldwide.
