'I Wasn't Even a Person.' Salma Hayek Says 'Monster' Harvey Weinstein Sexually Harassed Her
SALMA Hayek has opened up about her horrifying experience with Harvey Weinstein, claiming he once threatened to kill her after she turned down his advances. In an opinion piece for The New York Times , Hayek, 51, revealed she was urged by friends - including Ashley Judd - to open up about her experiences with the Miramax mogul, but didn't because she thought she had "brainwashed" herself "into thinking that it was over" and that she "survived". While working on Miramax's Frida , for which she earned an Oscar nomination, Hayek learned her good friend Weinstein, 65, wasn't the person she thought he was. He had validated the last 14 years of my life.
Harvey Weinstein was a passionate cinephile, a risk taker, a patron of talent in film, a loving father and a monster. This fall, I was approached by reporters, through different sources, including my dear friend Ashley Judd, to speak about an episode in my life that, although painful, I thought I had made peace with. I had brainwashed myself into thinking that it was over and that I had survived; I hid from the responsibility to speak out with the excuse that enough people were already involved in shining a light on my monster.
