T if­fany Had­dish knows the im­por­tance of chem­istry. So when she got the script for Like a Boss and learned she would po­ten­tially be play­ing Rose Byrne’s best friend, it was clear what she had to do: in­vite Byrne for a drink to fig­ure out if they could pull off hav­ing a 20-year-long rap­port. “We hung out for four hours,” says Had­dish. “We’re sit­ting, we’re drink­ing, we’re eat­ing, we’re laugh­ing. Hav­ing so much fun. We just in­stantly con­nected. I was like, ‘Girl, I think we should walk down the street and see a psy­chic to see if we were sis­ters or cousins in a past life.’ ” “I was so ner­vous,” Byrne says of that first date. “The most im­por­tant part of the movie is that we’re besties and have that con­nec­tion. And we’re so dif­fer­ent—but we fig­ured out that we have so many things in com­mon. We’re ex­actly 5 feet 6 and a half, have re­ally small ears, were born in 1979...” Had­dish and Byrne eased right into their char­ac­ters, Mel and Mia, who, as best friends and beauty-brand co-founders, are stuck in a pro­fes­sional rut. All Like a Boss was miss­ing was the right per­son to play Mel and Mia’s ad­ver­sary, Claire Luna—an am­bi­tious beauty CEO who in­vests in their small com­pany and also tries to tear their friend­ship apart. En­ter Salma Hayek Pinault. “I’ve never re­ally done a girls’ film,” says Hayek Pinault. “And I’ve al­ways wanted to.” So when di­rec­tor Miguel Arteta, with whom she worked in 2007’s Beatriz at Din­ner, reached out about Like a Boss, she says she did some­thing she never does: She signed on with­out read­ing the script. “The three of us were very dif­fer­ent from each other, and that makes for a richer ex­pe­ri­ence,” says Hayek Pinault. “I just fell in love with them.” In sep­a­rate con­ver­sa­tions, Hayek Pinault, Byrne, and Had­dish share sto­ries of am­bi­tion, age, sci­ence, and, ul­ti­mately, how each is right where she wants to be.
