Salma Hayek usually allows her four-year-old daughter Valentina onto sets while she is making films. However, she opted against her own policy for "Savages" where she played a ruthless drug lord.
In an interview with the Tonight Show, Hayek commented on the fact that she felt that the film's violence and subject matter were simply not a place for a young girl. She added that she didn't think that director Oliver Stone would have allowed it anyway.

"She's not going to watch this movie," Hayek, 45, added "I usually bring her on the set and she always likes to sit right next to the monitor and she bosses everyone around."
Hayek has noted in interviews with ShowbizSpy, that she is willing to give up her career if it were to interfere with her daughter's development.
"If later on it gets in the way of her development, I'll just stop working," the actress said. "For right now, it works. I work mostly in the summers. I usually work with the Sandler family or with Kevin James."
Regarding her spouse Francois-Henri Pinault, Hayek added that "I get a lot of help from my husband. You have to have a good partner. When I get freaked out, he's like, 'Don't worry, it will work itself out. How can I help you?" Hayek said. "He calms me down. I am more hysterical than he is. It's very easy to bail out. A lot of women don't get support in their professional lives from their husbands."
"Savages" opened this weekend to a $16 million opening, far below expectations. The film is rated R for strong brutal and grisly violence, some graphic sexuality, nudity, drug use and strong language throughout.
