JILL DOBSON Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Salma Hayek said the new comedy "Like a Boss" created an opportunity for her to work with more female actors than usual compared to previous films. Hayek called filming with the predominantly-led female cast that included Rose Byrne and Tiffany Haddish a "breath of fresh air." She said having the openly gay Billy Porter as part of the roster was also a bonus, calling him "one of us too." In "Like a Boss," Haddish and Byrne play best friends Mia and Mel who created a small cosmetics company together.

Jennifer Coolidge and Natasha Rothwell also appear in the film, which opens in theaters Friday
