Hayek In for Hope

Actress Salma Hayek and Hollywood’s honorary mayor Johnny Grant will entertain U.S. troops in Kosovo, Bosnia and Macedonia over the Thanksgiving holiday — at the request of Bob Hope, who phoned Grant and asked him to continue the USO tradition. Hayek and Grant left the Hollywood Bowl via helicopter Monday to begin their journey. Also on the trip are Danica McKellar (“The Wonder Years”) and Garrett Morris (“Saturday Night Live”). Asked if she would miss Thanksgiving with her family, Hayek told the Associated Press that members of the military aren’t appreciated enough and she’d rather be part of their holiday. As for what she’ll do for the troops, the “Fools Rush In” star, 33, said: “I just finished a movie Friday and I didn’t have time to learn a tap dance or a song.”
