Salma Hayek - who's starring in the newly released film: The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, the sequel to the Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson action comedy film - went on The Ellen Show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres - who recently announced she'll be ending the day time talk show after 19 seasons - to share the hilarious anecdote of a time when her pet owl had a hilarious accident on former One Direction boy band member, Harry Style's head.

While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, on June 15 the Mexican American actress shared that her pet owl, Kering, once gave the ultimate parting gift to a very special house guest: Harry Styles.

When the actress recalled the story to Ellen, she initially played a coy and withheld the identity of the star at first. "One time, there was a very important celebrity—I will not say his name—and he was really excited about the owl and hoping that the owl would go on his head because it was on me," she shared.

"He's like, ‘Oh, I need an owl in my life. How do you do that?' And the minute he least expected it, it came on his head—but then she did the thing [coughed it up]." She gestured.

The Grown Ups actress explained that one of her owl's favourite things to munch on includes mice, so it made for quite a gruesome surprise: "This ball of rat hair was on his head."

And did the Watermelon Sugar singer freak out by the unusual gift? Well, apparently not! He played it "cool" according to the actress. "He was okay, he was [kind of] cool," Salma recalled. "He didn't scream." Check out the full interview below.
