Salma Hayek is still disappointed she failed to win an OSCAR for her FRIDA KAHLO biopic because she had the most inventive home for the statuette.

The actress' labour of love received six nominations, including a Best Actress nod for her leading role - and she had already thought of the perfect place to rest the little golden man.

She says, "I had a very specific plan for this Oscar and you know if you don't win it nobody gets to know this.

"I was going to take it to her house and leave it there for good. It's a blue house in Mexico City."
