Hayek told DeGeneres that her residence had calmed down in terms of supernatural activity and said that ‘it was haunted, I think…it is not like before, definitely.’

Although the Frida star had not seen the ghosts, she noted that her family had experienced paranormal phenomena.

‘I didn’t see these, but somebody, like, didn’t want to work there anymore because the piano played by itself and you wouldn’t go to the third floor…lights go on and off or the doors and the windows opened and closed,’ she said.

Hayek noted that took the occurrences with a grain of salt, and said of the main ghost: ‘I think he was drunk.’

The performer then recalled that she took matters into her own hands and sought out a medium that could rid the house of the spirits or at least alleviate the concerns of her loved ones. 

‘I said, look, I’m going to bring somebody, even if it’s not true, at least they might, psychologically think it’s over.’ she said.

Hayek pointed out that she was not interested in any rituals involving wildlife and noted that she told the medium: ‘No chicken legs, no chicken heads, don’t bring some dead animal in my house.’

She then expressed that her family’s fears only grew ‘worse because he found like twenty [ghosts].’

When the actress’ daughter became concerned about a specific apparition, the medium noted that he had spoken with the benevolent spirit of a nun who was unwilling to leave the house.  

She recalled that the medium told her child that the ghost ‘was here longer than you and she’s not telling me to get rid of you!’

Hayek added that the individual insisted that the nun ‘has good vibes! She stays!’ 

The Desperado actress then noted that she was a fan of pulling hair-raising pranks on her friends and family, stating: ‘I have to admit, I love to scare them, and the anticipation…I don’t like it when they scare me.’

DeGeneres also spoke about her love for practical jokes and told the performer about one of her favorite setups. 

‘I wait for them outside of a bathroom, especially public bathrooms…if we’re having dinner or something and someone gets up to go to the bathroom, I’ll be waiting right behind the door because they’re not expecting it,’ she said.

Hayek then discussed one of her preferred methods, although she pointed out that the approach could be dangerous.

‘You ought to try when they’re coming out of the shower, when they’re naked or with a towel…be careful, [it’s] very easy to slip and you can kill someone like that,’ she stated.
