Actor Salma Hayek is the latest Hollywood A-lister to come forward with allegations of sexual harassment against disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein during the filming of Frida. Hayek accused the producer of sexual harassment in an essay published in The New York Times, titled “Harvey Weinstein Is My Monster Too”.
The 51-year-old actor said she initially felt grateful to Weinstein for taking a chance on her and believing in her talent enough to let her complete the movie on her favourite artist. But little did she know that she would go through hell to complete the 2002 Miramax-produced film after she rebuffed his series of advances. The actor said she had to constantly say ‘no’ to Weinstein who would accost her at different places with the strangest of demands.
