Salma Hayek caused a mess while vacationing in Greece … but it was all in the name of "tradition."
On Aug. 31, the actress took to Instagram to post images and videos from dinner. The first image shows Salma sitting at the dinner table with an empty plate in front of her and a gold-plated olive branch pinned in her hair. A subsequent video, though, shows her slamming two plates onto the ground while others cheer.
Breaking plates is embedded into the fabric of Greek culture — some believe it symbolizes good luck, while others believe it keeps evil spirits at bay.
"I started the night looking #fresh, patiently waiting for my dinner. Six hours later I was breaking plates like it's customary in #Greece," she captioned the Instagram post.
The post was quickly liked by thousands of Instagram followers, including Jennifer Aniston, who is of Greek descent.
For several weeks, Salma, 53, has been documenting her Greek road trip with her husband, François-Henri Pinault.
"Love in the time of corona," she wrote alongside a snap of herself kissing François through her face mask while sitting at an outdoor cafe.
She later stunned while casually drinking coffee in a bikini.
Other images have showed her basking in the sun, hanging out with a street musician and dancing in the car to Cuban salsa singer Celia Cruz while exploring the Islands.
"Road trip in #Greece 🇬🇷 listening to the #queen @CeliaCruz 🌺 🎶," she captioned the video. "Long live #salsa! Have a dancing #Sunday!"
