Salma Hayek Outs Harvey Weinstein’s Threats Of Violence
Piece o’ shyte Hollyweird producer Harvey Weinstein has been purged from the industry behind the bevy of credible sexual assault, harassment and abuse allegations against him. However, that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have a parade of skeletons ready to march out of his creepy closet.
Actress Salma Hayek recently sat down for an interview on Oprah’s Super Soul Conversation (aired yesterday) to reveal how ashamed she felt for not being part of the OG contingent of women who brought Weinstein to public justice, via ETOnline:
“They contacted me to be a part of the first story, The New York Times… already I started crying when they asked, and I ended up not doing it,” Hayek shared. “I started crying because [I had PTSD].”
“Then I felt ashamed… I was supporting women for two decades and then I was a coward,” she continued. “I was pretending everything was OK, so I had been around Harvey and acting like everything was OK.”
But that wasn’t it, she also revealed that beyond the sexual misconduct, Weinstein also threaten her with a violent physical attack:
“He never raped me [but the harassment] was not one or two occasions. It was five years… He told me, ‘I’m going to kill you,’” she continued.
She goes on to say:
She also revealed additional alleged details from her time dealing with Weinstein that she hadn’t previously written about, including claiming that Weinstein had told Frida director Julie Taymor, “I am going to break the kneecaps of that c-word.”
“I don’t want to get into the details… because we have more important things to talk about… but I was depressed,” Hayek noted. “I was paranoid. I lived in fear. I tried to get out. I couldn’t get out.”
That sounds VERY specific. We believe her wholeheartedly. F**k Harvey Weinstein.
