Salma Hayek has recently come forward Harvey Weinstein.

Ever since the story first popped up, the Mexican-American actress has been badgered with questions about Harvey Weinstein. She has finally made her statements in an op-ed published piece in the NYT, and reading it is harrowing.

“Harvey Weinstein was a passionate cinephile, a risk taker, a patron of talent in film, a loving father and a monster. For years, he was my monster,”

She talks about how he relentlessly approached her,

And how she turned him down each and every time.

“No to opening the door to him at all hours of the night, hotel after hotel, location after location, where he would show up unexpectedly, including one location where I was doing a movie he wasn’t even involved with. No to me taking a shower with him. No to letting him watch me take a shower. No to letting him give me a massage. No to letting a naked friend of his give me a massage. No to letting him give me oral sex. No to my getting naked with another woman.”

The worst of it would be when he threatened bodily harm on her.

“I will kill you, don’t think I can’t.”

The fact that she turned him down so many times before is why he forced her into filming a sex scene with another woman. His rage at her refusal hurt her career.

“I arrived on the set the day we were to shoot the scene that I believed would save the movie. And for the first and last time in my career, I had a nervous breakdown: My body began to shake uncontrollably, my breath was short and I began to cry and cry, unable to stop, as if I were throwing up tears. Since those around me had no knowledge of my history of Harvey, they were very surprised by my struggle that morning. It was not because I would be naked with another woman. It was because I would be naked with her for Harvey Weinstein.”

Salma Hayek even proposed a solution to the problem.

“Until there is equality in our industry, with men and women having the same value in every aspect of it, our community will continue to be a fertile ground for predators,”

She believes that due to the difference in number of the male and female directors, producers, etc, the power gap will always lead to problems and horrors such as this.
