Salma wished Penelope a happy birthday with the throwback photos 

The birthday girl turned 47 on 28 April and is just a few years younger than her friend, who will ring in her 55th birthday this year. 

In 2013, Penelope revealed the fun nicknames they have when she told Allure: "We call each other huevos [eggs]. It was because when we were working together, we didn’t have children yet, so we used to sleep much more than now. So it was a way to call each other lazy."
