Video: Gad Elmaleh Spotted Dancing With Salma Hayek at Cannes

The Moroccan comedian took the expression “dance like no one’s watching” to heart.

Rabat – American actress Eva Longoria is to thank for the footage of  Moroccan comedian Gad Elmaleh having an impromptu dance session with Mexican-Lebanese actress Salma Hayek.

The video was filmed at the Kering dinner, organized during the Cannes Film with the theme of “women in motion.”

The Moroccan comedian took the expression “dance like no one’s watching” to heart, swaying and spinning to the beat of the drums along with Hayek. Lebanese director Nadine Labaki also joined in the festivities.

Elmaleh has a lot to celebrate this year. In April, his new show “Huge in France” premiered on Netflix to critical acclaim. The semi-autobiographical show tells the story of the comedian reconnecting with his son in Los Angeles, and the struggles of culture shock, co-parenting, and dating in a new country.
