Step aside, Jennifer Aniston. You're no longer Alec Baldwin's favorite 30 Rock guest star.

That honor belongs to Salma Hayek, who played the actor's love interest for five episodes.

"She was literally the most fabulous woman that I've ever worked with," Baldwin recently told PEOPLE.

And at last night's CNN "Heroes" tribute award show, Hayek was quick to return the praise.

"We had such a great time!" she told PEOPLE, "I love Alec to death. He energizes me ... because he's so talented. He really, truly inspires me."

The 42-year-old Hayek – who has a one-year-old daughter Valentina Paloma and has been cozying up to her billionaire ex in real life – arrived at the event in a jaw-droppingly low-cut turquoise dress and a black pashmina.

"This is the gift that Alec gave me," she said of the wrap, "just for being his girlfriend for five episodes. I feel like he's coming with me tonight!"
