Cannes 2018: Hayek calls on male stars to take pay cuts

Despite the large number of women who spoke out, Weinstein only made specific statements about Hayek and Lupita N'yongo - who claimed she was harassed by the star in 2011.

In a lengthy statement, Weinstein apologised for his "boorish behavior" following a screening of "Frida" but claimed he never fought with Hayek on set and didn't recall some of her allegations.

Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek, a vocal campaigner against sexual harassment in the movie industry, says male stars should get less pay as a way to even things up with chronically underpaid women.

"It is not just the producers", Hayek said Sunday at a Women in Motion talk at the Cannes Film Festival.

The export ban was placed on ZTE after the company violated US sanctions and sold goods and services to Iran and North Korea. ZTE depended on American chips and other components, and is unable to continue operating without key supplies.

"We should have been angrier sooner", she said. "So he went attacking the two women of colour, in hopes that if he could discredit us, he could then maybe discredit the rest". The actress-producer said she had sold four TV shows about women this year.

"I can't find enough female writers and directors", Hayek said. "It is a well known fact that if you are a woman of colour, people believe in you less, and believe what you say less".

"This is a new era for men", Hayek said.

Halfway up the stairs at the Palais des Festivals at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday stood 82 women, representing the 82 female directors who have climbed those same stairs since the first year the festival was held, 1946.

While he proved to be prolific in terms of goals and assists, he is set to finish the campaign on the sidelines with his injury. The 25-year-old won the domestic quadruple, which included the Trophee des Champions, in his first season at Parc des Princes.

If there hadn't been so many accusers, Hayek added, "probably, people would've thought that we made that up".

But she said the #MeToo movement also is a great time for men "to rethink what it means to be a man".

"For years, he was my monster", Hayek wrote in an op-ed published in December by The New York Times.

The interview took place the day after Hayek walked the Cannes red carpet with the likes of Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay, and actresses Kristen Stewart, Jane Fonda, Cate Blanchett, and Marion Cotillard, as part of a group of 82 women protesting gender inequality.

The comments come after Weinstein's lawyers insisted: "All of the sexual allegations as portrayed by Salma are not accurate and others who witnessed the events have a different account of what transpired". "Men have the opportunity, which is so handsome, to rethink what does it mean to be a man", she said.
