Hayek recalls near-death experience

Salma Hayek had a near-miss when a wall fell in

Salma Hayek has revealed how she used up one of her nine feline lives.

While recording dialogue for her role as Kitty Softpaws in new animated movie Puss In Boots at a studio in Boston, a section of the wall suddenly collapsed, but she moved aside in time, narrowly escaping getting crushed.

"I was talking into the mic when all of a sudden, my instincts just told me to run. I didn't know why, but I said my line and then I ran," recalled the Mexican actress.

The mother-of-one continued: "Seconds later, boom! The wall came down and crushed the chair I had been sitting on seconds ago. It sounds funny but it was really scary."

Salma is relieved she can finally joke about the incident.

"I think it was like peripheral vision or foresight. If I had not run, it would have been very bad," she said.

"After all the stunts I did - to die in the recording studio!" she quipped.

:: Puss In Boots opens in cinemas on Friday, December 9.
