Harvey Weinstein Forced Salma Hayek Into Girl-on-Girl Action

Salma Hayek attends the 2017 LACMA Art + Film gala at LACMA

Weinstein responded to Salma Hayek's allegations of sexual harassment and threatening behaviour on Wednesday. During filming he made disparaging remarks about the Kahlo's unibrow and the fact that Hayek and the movie were not sexy enough-which is just so utterly ridiculous it needs no further dissection. He said "all of the sexual allegations as portrayed by Salma are not accurate and others who witnessed the events have a different account of what transpired", according to USA Today.

In a piece for the New York Times, Salma alleged that she was sexually harassed by Weinstein while filming the 2002 film Frida.

No sooner had Hayek entered into a contract with Weinstein that she also dealt with his persistent and uninvited sexual advances. She brought the film idea to Miramax, Weinstein's production company, which at the time, had "become synonymous with quality, sophistication and risk taking". But she said that the movie mogul would turn up at her door "at all hours of the night, hotel after hotel, location after location". No to letting an exposed companion of his give me a back rub. It was not because I would be naked with another woman.

"When I saw him socially, I'd smile and try to remember the good things about him, telling myself that I went to war and I won", she explains. "No to my getting naked with another woman", penned Hayek. "And with each refusal came Harvey's Machiavellian rage".

"I'll kill you. Do not think I'm not going to do it", were the exact words of Harvey Weinstein after the actress, once again, refused to have sex with him. Hayek believed that complying was the only way she would get the movie made, and since she was already five weeks into production, she anxious about disappointing all of the "talented people" she'd convinced to join her project, including Ashley Judd, Edward Norton and director Julie Taymor. "There was no room for negotiation". "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". When Taymor told Weinstein "the film succeeded", he reportedly screamed in response, "You are the most arrogant person I have ever met".

Rodriquez said that even if you get vaccinated in January, February or March, it's much better than not being vaccinated at all. Flu vaccination can reduce the risk of flu-associated hospitalization, including among children and older adults.

Even after this, Weinstein declared he would only release the film direct-to-video.

Ed Norton, who was Ms. Hayek's boyfriend at the time, [worked with Mr. Weinstein on the rewrite of the script in Mexico] did a brilliant job of rewriting the script and Mr. Weinstein battled the WGA to get him a credit on the film. "It was because I would be naked with her for Harvey Weinstein". "I arrived on the set the day we were to shoot the scene that I believed would save the movie".

She took legal action, claiming bad faith, and Weinstein then tried shutting down the project by presenting what she called "a list of impossible tasks with a tight deadline".

She said he also constantly made it a challenge for her to get Frida made.

Weinstein has been accused by dozens of women, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Annabella Sciorra and more, of sexual misconduct and, in some cases, assault. "I answered none of his questions and hurried off the phone but before I hung up, he said to me that If I was gay or made a decision to be with a woman especially in public that I'd never get the role of a straight woman or make it as an actress in Hollywood".
