Salma Hayek admitted she was reluctant about being a part of the “Black Mirror” cast.
In Season 6 of the dystopian, sci-fi drama series, Hayek said she was afraid the “disgusting” and “grotesque” scenes she acted in would be largely criticized by viewers.
“There are so many moments that shocked me in the script. There is one huge one that I had to come to terms with, and made me ask myself, ‘Do I really want to do this? Am I going to get in trouble?’” Hayek said during a cover story interview for Radio Times, according to the Independent.

The 56-year-old actress portrays a character on “Black Mirror” that is a non-famous version of herself who is shocked by a streaming platform’s launch of a new drama based on her life.
“It’s as if I created an alter ego where I could do the most disgusting, grotesque things that you would never do in real life… and have permission to do that.”
Despite Hayek’s fears that she would get in “trouble” for her “Black Mirror” role, she confessed she enjoyed working on the popular television series.
“It’s been absurd and a lot of fun. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play an interpretation of myself,” Hayek added.
“I got to explore the concepts and clichés people have about me and be self-deprecating.”
