Now, Salma Hayek Accuses Harvey Weinstein As A “Monster”
One by one, as many as 80 women have accused director & producer and creator of Miramax, Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault, and rape. This time, Salma Hayek has opened up and regarded Weinstein as her “Monster”.
In an interview, Hayek said that she had to bear the sexual advances of Weinstein’s during the filming of the movie Frida. Salma Hayek managed to dodge his sexually predatory moves. She recalls how Harvey threatened to kill her in a rage after the refusals.
Salma Hayek revealed that he forced her to enact a nude lesbian sex scene for the film Frida. Hayek was literally shocked to sense a predatory behavior by Weinstein. Even though she was excited to work with his company. His shamefully disgusting sexual advances like asking for a massage, taking a shower together and going to a hotel room were denied by this famous Hollywood actress.
There is a pretty long list of actresses accusing Harvey of shameful sexual behavior. Hollywood A-listers like Lupita Nuyong, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Cara Delavigne, Gwyneth Paltrow, Eva Green, and Lean Headey have come out in open against Weinstein.
Harvey Weinstein’s attorney has rejected all the sexual harassment claims. Harvey has termed all the sexual encounters as consensual. After the allegations of sexual harassment surfaced, Harvey Weinstein was also removed by the Weinstein Company. He was also expelled from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences this year. Followed by these shameful allegations, Weinstein’s second wife has left him in October this year.
Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob Weinstein founded Miramax in 1979. They produced many commercially successful and critically acclaimed movies such as Pulp Fiction, Shakespeare in Love, The Crying Game.
