During the Jimmy Kimmel Live! interview Gaga gave more insight into the sex scene she filmed with her 55-year-old co-star, which was ultimately cut from the final version of the movie.
“I said, ‘okay so I was thinking, you know, after the hit gets put out on Maurizio and you get the phone call that he’s dead, that I walk over to you and kiss you,'” Gaga recalled. “And she’s like, ‘WHAT!'”
They got the permission of director Ridley Scott to film the scene, but unfortunately it was cut from the movie.
Gaga added: “[Salma’s] walking around the house and the camera was following her feet and all her cats were following her, and Salma – in order to get the cats to follow her – she put a bunch of catnip in her boots and the cats are following her,” Gaga shared as the audience laughed.
“Then we’re surrounded by cats and we start making out – and I made out with Salma Hayek,” Gaga said proudly. “I’m like that really, you know, annoying kid in school that’s like bragging that they made out with the popular girl, but has no proof.”
