Salma Hayek has baffled her fans after revealing she loves watching telly with her pet owl Kering.

The 54-year-old actress and producer has been the proud owner of Kering for two years, and it seems she has taken their strong bond to the next level.

She originally gave Kering – who was rescued – to her husband François-Henri Pinault as a Valentine's Day gift, but it appears Salma spends more time with the beloved bird than he does.

"I have a lot of fun watching TV with Kering," she said. "He flies around the room and sometimes he lands on my head or he lands on the TV.

"He doesn't really care what we watch, but this has gone on for a couple of years now. We'll watch anything together."

Taking to Twitter, fans of the Hollywood star shared their thoughts over the bizarre claim.

"Salma Hayek has an owl….in her home?" one person commented.

A second joked: "That's a hoot."

"Wait, no one even told me that Salma Hayek has a pet owl," a third mentioned.

It's not the first time Salma's beloved owl has made the headlines.

She recently admitted Kering threw up on former One Direction star Harry Styles.

On the Ellen DeGeneres show, Salma said: "The worst is that there is this ball of hair that comes out of their mouth and one time there was a very important celebrity, I will not say his name, and he was really excited about the owl and was hoping that the owl would go on his head because it was on me.

"He's like, 'I need an owl in my life, how do you do that?' And the minute he least expected it, it came on his head but then it… did the thing. This ball of rat hair was on his head."

Salma remained tight-lipped about who the famous star was, but she eventually shared his name.

"It was Harry Styles – I hope I'm not in trouble!" she said. "He was super cool by the way, he was super cool even with that happening. He's the best."

The TV star spends a lot of time with her furry friend.

Salma, who has recently been cast for new Marvel movie The Eternals, has previously brought the owl to London with her and will sometimes let Kering sleep in her bed "when her husband is not in the room".

The pair also share meals and enjoy watching TV together on her iPad.
