After Eminem's top-secret performance at the 2020 Oscars, the two had a run-in backstage that led to two photos where the duo look rather uncomfortable.

In these pictures it might look like @Eminem and I are best friends, but what really happened is as he was walking offstage and I was getting ready to walk onstage, I was so shocked to see him that I spilled water all over him. If you examine our faces, I look mortified and he looks terrified of me- As I was trying to wipe it off I impulsively hugged him and I said “Nice to meet you Eminem- I’m a HUGE fan!” because I AM! But I was so disappointed that I made such a fool of myself in front of him… and then I read this [swipe right] in @rollingstone. Eminem you’re the greatest!!!

En estas imágenes podría parecer que Eminem y yo somos mejores amigos, pero lo que realmente sucedió es que mientras el salía del escenario y me preparaba para entrar, me sorprendió tanto verlo que le tiré agua encima. Si examinas la foto, me veo mortificado y él se ve aterrorizado de mí. Mientras intentaba limpiarlo, lo abracé impulsivamente y le dije: "Encantado de conocerte, Eminem. ¡Soy un ENORME fan!" Pero estaba muy decepcionada de haber hecho el ridículo al conocerlo… y luego leí esto [deslizar hacia la derecha] en @rollingstone. Eminem eres grande!!!

The actress, who is starring in this fall's Marvel movie, "The Eternals," said she tried to play it cool as she was actually trying to get the water off of him.
"As I was trying to wipe it off I impulsively hugged him and I said, 'Nice to meet you Eminem — I'm a HUGE fan!' because I AM!" wrote Hayek.
Eminem appeared at the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday to perform his Oscar-winning song, "Lose Yourself." The rapper didn't accept the award in person when he won in 2003 and was invited to perform the song this year.
It's little surprise that Hayek was caught off guard by his appearance. According to Vanity Fair, Eminem's performance was so closely guarded that it was kept off of show documents.
Hayek said she was disappointed in herself after their brief meeting, thinking she made a fool of herself. But Eminem didn't seem phased when he spoke with Rolling Stone about his Oscar appearance.
"I got to hug Salma Hayek!" said Eminem.
After seeing Eminem's reaction in Rolling Stone she responded, "Eminem you're the greatest!"
