Hayek, 46, also had two other pet tigers at home while she was a child and loved to play with them but was shattered with their death, reported Contactmusic. "One (tiger), caught in the air conditioner, died.
One sweet cub developed a temper and had to go. My third, Rambo, the tiger of my life, was a little baby doll. Three years we played inside our house. I can't talk of how he died. It's too upsetting," Hayek said.
The actress was once gifted two monkeys by her 'Desperado' friend Antonio Banderas. "Before I had my child, animals were my life. I slept with four dogs in my bed.
They (the monkeys) lived in an open cage and one of them always ran out and was eaten by a cat in the end. The other one died of lovelornness," Hayek said.
