House Of Gucci sounds all together like a hoot to work on. As well as Lady Gaga staying in character for seven months and Adam Driver opening up about the unique sex scenes, Salma Hayek has now told the story of a "mortifying" moment from set.

The actress play Giuseppina 'Pina' Auriemma in the blockbuster, the friend and confidante of Lady Gaga’s Patrizia Reggiani. Together, they plotted the murder of Patrizia's husband and Gucci founder Maurizio Gucci, with Patrizia later convicted of ordering his murder in Milan back in 1995. The film will follow the crime and the corresponding fall of the House of Gucci.

In a new interview, Salma opened up about an "embarrassing" scene she shared with Gaga - real name Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta - in a mud bath (of all places.) "I've never done a mud bath – which, by the way, she couldn't believe it, that I had never done a mud bath – we have a little bit of dialogue before we go in," she explained on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

"And once you're in, you're naked – well, not completely, we had something underneath but nothing on top – and the thing is that, in my head, I was going to sink. Gaga just goes in like an Egyptian queen, sits down and she starts descending."

Salma continued, "Me, with my extra kilos, I sit on the mud and I'm not sinking. And I'm trying to [move the mud away from] my huge butt to make some way. And then it starts moving me around and then there's the boobs going, you know. It's a very dramatic scene and she's trying to stay focused and... I'm mortified."

She added that the experience was "horrific" and the "most challenging scene I've ever done."

What a story.
