Salma Hayek 'ashamed' she wasn't part of original Harvey Weinstein expose

Salma Hayek feels "ashamed" that she wasn't fearless enough to be part of the original expose detailing Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct.

"I didn't know there was so many women".

Hayek noted that she also hesitated because she hadn't told her husband what happened between her and Weinstein and she "thought of all these different things including my child, I didn't want to talk about it".

Salma said, "When it came out, then I was ashamed that I didn't speak up and then when so many women came out, it was a odd sensation". I thought of my daughter...

"I felt like my pain was so small compared with that of others", she said, adding that she had not even told her husband or friends like Penelope Cruz and Robert Rodriguez about the alleged mistreatment. But when we come together, put the drama aside, and unite with each other, then it's not about drama, it's not about pain. "No, no, no, no, no", she wrote.

The Beatriz at Dinner star opened up to Oprah Winfrey about the conflict she felt sharing the story during Wednesday's taping of SuperSoul Conversations.

"You have to keep your principles". Also, Oprah has a podcast, because I guess she wanted to try being less successful than Kevin Smith at something.

He asked the USA to ensure that all American financial institutions stop all transactions of the Yameen regime's leaders. However, the Maldives Police Service has said that there was evidence that could implicate Saeed and Hameed.

Hayek concluded her in-depth conversation with Winfrey by declaring that the Time's Up movement "is not going to be a moment". "I think that sometimes we underestimate our efforts. and the power that it has for change". "All these efforts of every single one of you, they pile up until there is an explosion".

In a statement to ET, a spokesperson for Weinstein said he apologizes for his behavior. "As in most collaborative projects, there was creative friction on Frida, but it served to drive the project to perfection".

She has previously revealed in the NY times that Weinstein, who is accused of raping, sexually abusing and harassing dozens of actresses, once threatened to kill her and had pressured her into filming a nude sex scene with a female co-star.

"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".

Weinstein has denied all accusations of non-consensual sex but has not yet responded to a request for comment on Hayek's latest claims.

The actress admitted during an appearance on Oprah Winfrey's Super Soul Conversations in New York City, that she "lived in fear" of the disgraced producer while working on movie Frida. (It should be pointed out that Weinstein took advantage of her sense of powerlessness by repeatedly telling her that she was a "nobody", which is its own kind of devastating abuse.) But her story is certainly brutal, nonetheless. The producer forced her to do a gratuitous sex scene for Frida with fellow accuser Ashley Judd, and the actress broke down on set.
