    Washington (ANI): An incident from her childhood made Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek jump at the chance of supporting a domestic violence campaign. Hayek recalled how her father was attacked after he tried to separate a wife and her husband who were fighting in the streets, revealing to Glamour magazine that it was the first incident of domestic violence she had ever seen close up.

    "The first time I saw domestic violence firsthand was when I was in Mexico, taking a walk with my family, and we came upon a man beating up this woman," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Glamour magazine. "My father intervened and fought the man and won. I remember thinking, 'Oh my God, my father is a hero'," she said.

    "Then the woman turned around and started beating up my father. I couldn't comprehend what was happening. After that I became very intrigued with what makes a woman stay in an abusive relationship. How does her spirit break?" she added.
