While chatting with show host Kimmel on Thursday, Hayek revealed why her co – star Jolie smashed her face into a birthday cake in a video that went viral online in September.

When the show host asked about her 55th birthday celebration last month, Hayek said: ‘There was no birthday part. All of those people were crashers. I said, ‘I don’t want a birthday this year.’ I had to work all day. Twenty – five people, that I told them there is no birthday party, showed up anyway’, she said, referring to the party documented in her September Instagram post.

The actress then explained that it’s a Mexican birthday tradition to push a person’s face into their cake – and Jolie was tasked with the job.

In the video, a group of friends are gathered around the actress chanting, ‘Mordida!’ as Jolie pushes Hayek’s face into her birthday cake.
