Salma Hayek 'Stunned' over the Amount of Females Harvey Weinstein Supposedly Attacked

Salma Hayek, Sofia Boutella and filmmakers walk the red carpet in protest of the lack of female filmmakers honored throughout the history of the festival.

For her part, Hayek celebrated the fact that it is becoming hard to hire known female writers and directors because so many of them are getting snapped up by studios.

Organizers said the event was orchestrated by the Time's Up movement and the French movement known as 5020×2020 to show "how hard it is still to climb the social and professional ladder" for women.

But while progress on the gender pay gap front will require more "aggressive" action, Hayek said, she argued that change had already arrived.

Hayek also claimed Harvey Weinstein specifically contested her claim of sexual harassment and that of Lupita Nyong'o because they're women of colour.

Weinstein at the time issued a lengthy statement of denial.

She continued: "So he went back attacking the two women of colour, in the hopes of discrediting. if he could discredit us - which would be easier for the audience, the readers, to not believe us - he could then maybe discredit the rest". "The predators are hiding and terrified".


"Personally, as a woman that has been part of this community and has had to go through the struggles that all women have had to go through, it's an important step to see this happen", she said.

"When you start seeing people standing up for their rights and being heard, it becomes contagious", she said. "Men have the opportunity, which is so handsome, to rethink what does it mean to be a man".

Hayek said inflated fees demanded by some leading actors, whom she did not name, could mean there was less money left for their female co-stars.

The gender pay gap, however, will take far longer to close, Hayek said. "We should have come together, because that's what's made the difference, we should have come together sooner", she said. "It is happening", she said. "They're all busy, and they are getting the opportunities".

Hayek isn't the only one calling for men to take a pay cut. "You have to take that feeling and get inspired by it".

Hayek hopes that the #MeToo movement will offer a chance to men to re-examine their own roles, both in the film industry, and in society as a whole. He later challenged allegations by N'yongo, who said Weinstein sexually harassed her in 2011 while she was still a college student.
