Garbage Person Harvey Weinstein Threatened to Break Salma Hayek's Kneecaps

Salma Hayek: Harvey Weinstein threatened to 'break my kneecaps'

Two months after more than five dozen women had accused Harvey Weinstein of assault and harassment, high-profile actress Salma Hayek shared her own experiences with the disgraced movie mogul in an essay for the New York Times titled "Harvey Weinstein Is My Monster, Too". According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hayek appeared as a guest on the show to talk about the #MeToo Movement.

She has previously revealed in the NY times that Weinstein, who is accused of raping, sexually abusing and harassing dozens of actresses, once threatened to kill her and had pressured her into filming a nude sex scene with a female co-star.

Hayek added that every time she refused, it came with "Harvey's Machiavellian rage" and even threatened her by saying, "I will kill you, don't think I can't". "But I felt like my pain was so small compared to all the other stories". "He claimed that my name as an actress was not big enough and that I was incompetent as a producer", Hayek wrote, after sharing the legal struggle she entered with Weinstein following his attempts to remove her from the film. "I started crying because [I had PTSD]". And then I felt ashamed that I was a coward.

"I was on set with Reese Witherspoon, who has since spoken out. and some other actresses, who haven't spoken out, so I won't say who they were, and this was like two days after the Harvey scandal had broken in The New York Times", Winfrey said. "I earned it with blood, but he did". 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. "We are told, 'You have to be the Virgin Mary, but you have to do what I say when I say, OK?"

More than 75 women have now come forward to accuse the film maker of sexual harassment, abuse and rape - among them Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale and Lupita Nyong'o. "But I could not tell them then".

"There is a moment, and I feel like it's human, where I was like, there's no point for me to talk because it just happens to everyone, and then I felt that by itself, it was just my own little drama. But he did. I was able to let go and move on", she explained. "I thought of the shame".

Onstage Wednesday, Hayek said she became "depressed" and "paranoid" after working with Weinstein.

'Nevertheless, Mr. Weinstein deeply apologizes to Ms. Hayek for any pain she has suffered as a result of his behavior or comments.

Through a representative, Weinstein has denied these allegations and any accusations of non-consensual sex. "He was very proud of her Best Actress Academy Award nomination for Frida and continues to support her work".
