Salma Hayek "Felt Ashamed" for Not Speaking Out About Harvey Weinstein Earlier

Salma Hayek Pinault Tells Why She Chose To Share Her #MeToo Story Now

Hayek Pinault was speaking to Oprah Winfrey at a recording of Oprah's SuperSoul Conversations at the Apollo theater in NY on Wednesday, and outlined her run-ins with Weinstein and their aftermath.

Hayek went into even more detail during an interview with Oprah Winfrey for the talk show host's Oprah's Super Soul Conversation Live Event.

When the headline-making investigation came out, Hayek remembers feeling a similar emotion, which ultimately convinced her to speak up about the abuse and harassment she says she endured while working with the former Hollywood producer. "But I felt like my pain was so small compared to all the other stories".

The Frida actress-who wrote a rousing first person December op-ed for the New York Times after declining to be a part of the original October exposé-opened up about how her initial reaction to the publication's call was humiliation.

PM Modi's wife injured in accident in Rajasthan
There were 7 people traveling in the MPV at the time of crash, which happened on a highway near Rajasthan's Chittorgarh district. Jashodaben, a retired schoolteacher who does not live with Mr Modi, married him in 1967 when he was 17 years old.

Hayek admitted she initially backed out of penning the piece when The Times came to her months ago, because she broke down every time she tried to put pen to paper.

"They contacted me to be a part of the first story, The New York Times. already I started crying when they asked, and I ended up not doing it", Hayek shared.

'And then I felt ashamed, that I was a coward. "I was supporting women for two decades, and then I was a coward". "You're reacting the way I have seen molested children act because they think they're the only ones this has happened to". "We are told, 'You have to be the Virgin Mary, but you have to do what I say when I say, OK?" I am a short, Mexican-Arab, angry woman. but I don't let that anger blur my vision. "Hayek alleged that "He said to Julie Taymor [Frida's director] [.] 'I am going to break the kneecaps of that 'c-word". Also, Oprah has a podcast, because I guess she wanted to try being less successful than Kevin Smith at something. I thought of the shame.

Salma Hayek claimed Weinstein sexually harassed her and even threatened to kill her when she spurned his advances while the pair worked together on her film. I went, 'Yes, no, yes, no, yes, no.

Kristaps Porzingis Out For Season
It's hard to properly gauge how the injury could affect Porzingis's future-and it would definitely be reckless to speculate. After the game, an emergency MRI at Madison Square Garden revealed that Porzingis had torn his ACL.

"I don't want to get into the details. because we have more important things to talk about. but I was depressed", Hayek noted.

Salma Hayek has detailed more threats of physical violence made by Harvey Weinstein on the set of Frida.

As we reported, the actress claimed Weinstein threatened to kill her after she refused his advances and was emotionally abusive during the filming of the 2002 biopic Frida. "There always is a way out", she added.

"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'.

Sarah Sanders: 'I Don't Really Care What Sen. Flake Has to Say'
Trump's wife, Melania, accompanied him to OH aboard Air Force One but peeled off to visit Cincinnati's children's hospital. Trump took a toddler in her arms briefly before moving to tables where children were making crafts and playing games.
