Hayek posed at the event with her mini-me daughter Valentina, who is among the target audience of the animated film that Hayek produced in addition to providing her voice for one of the film’s characters.
The Prophet, inspired by Kahlil Gibran’s book of the same name, tells eight separate stories that provide valuable life lessons incorporating art, music and poetry. Liam Neeson, John Krasinski, Quvenzhané Wallis, Alfred Molina and Frank Langella all voice characters in The Prophet.
While promoting The Prophet ahead of the premiere, Hayek was asked to weigh in on presidential candidate Donald Trump‘s outlandish remarks about Mexican immigrants.
“I’m aware that he would say anything to attract attention and create the publicity around him,” the Mexico-born actress told E! News. “If something generates publicity, I would never be surprised about anything he does.”
“Things that he said… I don’t repeat and I don’t say his name because I don’t want to give him extra publicity,” Hayek continued before adding, “At least be brought a light to a real problem.”
Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet will hit theaters in limited release Aug. 7.
