Salma Hayek has come out to reveal she was once the victim of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assaults.
The actress, writing an op-ed for the New York Times, revealed it got to a point where the now disgraced movie mogul threatenend to kill her.
The article, titled ‘Harvey Weinstein Is My Monster Too’, reveals that Weinstein tried his same tricks with her – the showers, the massages, the late-night hotel room “meeting” requests and more.
“The range of his persuasion tactics went from sweet-talking me to that one time when, in an attack of fury, he said the terrifying words, “I will kill you, don’t think I can’t.”,” she wrote.
The worst came when Hayek was filming Frida in 2002, when Weinstein tried to block the movie because of a lack of sex appeal.
She wrote: “He offered me one option to continue. He would let me finish the film if I agreed to do a sex scene with another woman. And he demanded full-frontal nudity.
“He had been constantly asking for more skin, for more sex. Once before, Julie Taymor got him to settle for a tango ending in a kiss instead of the lovemaking scene he wanted us to shoot between the character Tina Modotti, played by Ashley Judd, and Frida.
“But this time, it was clear to me he would never let me finish this movie without him having his fantasy one way or another. There was no room for negotiation.”
