"All of us whose [sic] crossed paths with her know that she’s made our life crazy, exciting, meaningful, inspiring and taught us the meaning of solidarity and loyalty with so much love," Hayek, 57, added.

Hayek previously shared a photo of her, Cruz and Saldaña holding each other while lying on the ground on Instagram in August 2023. "A circle of love, support, empowerment and long lasting friendship ♾️♥️ #grateful," she wrote in a caption at that time.

A source recently told PEOPLE that Cruz "is fulfilled, in a solid marriage and has a happy life,” as she turns 50. The actress has been married to Javier Bardem since 2010. “Penelope is fine with turning 50 and believes the early years of working all of the time paid off but are behind her," the source said. "Now she can pick and choose. And she is quite content with how everything has turned out for her."
