Salma Hayek is visiting her ancestral homeland Lebanon to launch "The Prophet," an animated feature film she co-produced. The film is a screen adaptation of the book by the same name written nearly a century ago by the famed Lebanese-American poet and philosopher Khalil Gibran.Gibran also was a sculptor and a painter influenced by the English Romantics. He migrated to the United States in the late 1890s, dying there in 1931.Hayek posed with one of Gibran's towering sculptures outside the museum and dipped her feet in nearby mountain spring waters before visiting his tomb and viewing his work.
