VIDEO: Actress Salma Hayek Gives Eric Garcetti Another Thumbs Up

In a video released Thursday, the Mexican-born actress says the mayoral candidate and city councilman can overcome any problem and bring people together.

“Eric Garcetti is one of those people that think that anything is possible," says actress Salma Hayek in a video released Thursday.

That's the apparent moral of the story she spends much of the video telling.

Garcetti finds her lost wallet in a "desert of snow" near the North Pole about decade ago.

The two traveled together as part of a group learning more about the issues Inuits faced.

Hayek also says Garcetti will bring people together and points to the "amazing transformation" he has worked in Hollywood.

Earlier this week the Garcetti campaign released two other videos featuring Hayek, one in English, another in Spanish. 

In those videos, Hayek praised Garcetti's dancing, gardening, linguistic skills--and vouched for him despite his political ambitions.

The Garcetti campaign pushed Hollywood endorsements hard this week and released a full list of entertainment indusry endorsers.

You can see that here.

Jimmy Kimmel, Will Ferrell and Moby will also headline a benefit for Garcetti next Thursday at the Ford Theater in Hollywood.

DJs Myles Hendrik, Ana Calderon, Timothy Norwind (of OK Go) and Chris Holmes will also be mixing.

As we noted in an earlier piece, Garcetti has some Hollywood catching up to do.

City Controller Wendy Greuel, his main competition in the race, has already snagged some very significant endorsements from Hollywood types.

Gruel worked for a number of years as an executive at Dreamworks Entertainment.

This 'Amazing Transformation in Hollywood' that the Savior of Hollywood is responsible for......And WHERE does Selma live? Or the rest on this list of supporters? Guaranteed it is not in Hollywood. And his 'main competition' Wendy Greuel is now in the Media every day with controversies and scandals, so his go unnoticed..and will be until his campaign calls off his attack dogs, which will be never. No one has the kind of campaign funds he has, from the developers he has sold Hollywood to, to be able to cover every base like this. Hopefully Dreamworks will pony up and open the flood gates on his secrets of deceipt and corruption.

Selma - stay in Beverly Hills -- your pal Garcetti is ravaging Hollywood with idiotic plans of tall buildings and increased density that will strangle everything.

As Truman Capote said, "Actors are dumb." Maybe she'd like to explain how $1.5 Billion in tax dollars disappeared into developers' pocket while Garcetti was Council President.
