Salma Hayek: Harvey Weinstein threatened to 'break my kneecaps'
09 February, 2018, 07:04 | Author: Constance French
Unfortunately for Hayek, though, that sense of solidarity among other women was accompanied by a sense of personal shame, as she told Oprah Winfrey on the Oprah'sSuperSoul Conversationspodcast in NY on Wednesday, in what was at first meant to be a conversation about the #MeToo movement at large. (Judd also came out with her own Weinstein accusations to the New York Times in early October.) She also says he initially refused to give Frida a wide release, which Hayek claims was because she didn't want to have a sexual relationship with him.
She explained that she couldn't handle it when The New York Times first approached her about sharing her story.
"[The New York Times] contacted me to be a part of the first story and already by this contact, there was all this turmoil and I started crying when they asked and I ended up not doing it", the Mexican actress recalled, as reported by BuzzFeed. "I felt ashamed that I was a coward. I was supporting women for two decades, and then I was a coward". According to Hayek, filming the 2002 biopic Frida with Weinstein was a drawn-out process that included his subjecting her to sexual harassment, extensive emotional abuse, and even a death threat. The people closest to Harvey basically went "Yeah, I can see that, he's always been a colossal dickhead".
The Guardian has requested comment from Weinstein.
"Little did I know it would become my turn to say no".
Another reason for her hesitance was that Hayek felt her story wasn't as impactful as those of the women who Weinstein was successful in allegedly assaulting. Hayek, for one, made a point that Weinstein "was not the first guy to do this to me". I went, 'Yes, no, yes, no, yes, no. She claimed that he repeatedly propositioned her to take a shower with him or let him watch her take a shower, give him a massage or let him give her oral sex, and more inappropriate behavior. I thought of the shame.
"It's important to take responsibility for the things we do to others, but we must stop apologizing for being attacked and we must move into a place where you can actually have a conversation", said Hayek.
She added, "All these efforts of every single one of you, they pile up until there is an explosion".
Harvey Weinstein and Salma Hayek attend a Miramax event on March 22, 2003.
"By Mr Weinstein's own admission, his boorish behaviour following a screening of 'Frida" was prompted by his disappointment in the cut of the movie'.
