Cruz was nominated for her work in “Ferrari”

Salma Hayek is celebrating Penelope Cruz’s achievements. In an Instagram post, Hayek shared a heavily edited photo of herself and Cruz, congratulating her close friend over her SAG Award nomination.

The photo is in black and white and shows Cruz and Hayek huddled closely together and smiling. Both have their lips painted red and their brown eyes blown out in color. To showcase Cruz’s talent, Hayek photoshopped a crown into the image, right over her head. “Congratulations Queen Cruz on your so well deserved SAG nomination,” Hayek captioned the post. “As always, you never cease to impress.”

Cruz and Hayek have been best friends for years, with the two starting off their Hollywood acting careers at around the same time. Despite the years that have passed and the fact that both have children and live in different parts of the world, Cruz and Hayek remain in staunch support of each other, always praising each other’s work and personalities.
