Salma Hayek tried to set Adam Sandler's mother up on a blind date.

The 46-year-old actress told Adam's mother Judy - whose husband Stanley died in 2003 - that she wanted to help her get a boyfriend but Adam quickly stepped in to stop it from happening.

Speaking on 'Good Morning America', Salma said: "I said to his mother, 'You know what, I would like to set you up with someone' because, you know, her husband passed away a long time ago and she's so spunky. I wanted to get her a boyfriend! And so I said I would like to set you up with someone and [Adam] was like 'What? No. Never. Don't mess with my mother.' Oh my goodness, you know? I got to see a whole other side of Adam.

"We're still getting to know each other and Judy said, 'No please. You know I don't want to do that.' "

Meanwhile, Salma - who has a five-year-old daughter Valentina with businessman husband François-Henri Pinault - also revealed she was bullied as a child but soon found a way to put a stop to it.

She said: "When I was a little girl, there was this mean boy who was like taller than me and probably older than me and he used to hit me, pull my hair, do all kinds of things to me.

"If you like a girl, don't beat on them. This is not good. And men if you love your wife, do not beat on them either. I used to walk like a duck and I told the teacher, she didn't do anything, my mom went and talked to them, they didn't do anything. So one day when he came to attack me, I just looked at him and I took my boots and kicked him right [in the leg]."
