Salma Hayek as Frida Kahlo in 'Frida'

Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek was nominated for an Academy Award for her portrayal of power woman Frida Kahlo in this 2002 drama film, which portrays the surrealist Mexican artist's private and professional life.

The idea of making a movie about Kahlo's life was bandied about in the early '80s, but studios didn't really take an interest until Kahlo's work exploded into popularity in the '90s.

Hayek was infatuated with Kahlo's story, saying, "She was never apologetic about who she was. She did little paintings that nobody liked. ... she kept true to her own style."
