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".

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.
