Mexican movie star Salma Hayek was so convinced she was going to die on a recent plane flight, she phoned best pal Penelope Cruz and dictated her last will and testament.

Cruz found the last-minute airport call amusing, but quickly realised her friend wasn't joking when she started listing all the things that the Spaniard would have to do as the executor of her last wishes.

Cruz recalls, "She calls me up to tell me all the things she wants me to do if anything happens to her, what to say to her brother, her sister - everything.

"She's telling me, `I know you're laughing! Laugh all you want! But just get this done!' I was laughing, and then I thought, `S**t, this is a big list - I better get a pen.'"
