Garbage Person Harvey Weinstein Threatened to Break Salma Hayek's Kneecaps

Garbage Person Harvey Weinstein Threatened to Break Salma Hayek's Kneecaps

(Judd also came out with her own Weinstein accusations to the New York Times in early October.) She also says he initially refused to give Frida a wide release, which Hayek claims was because she didn't want to have a sexual relationship with him. "But I felt like my pain was so small compared to all the other stories".

"[The Times] contacted me to be a part of the first story and already by this contact, there was all this turmoil and I started crying when they asked and I ended up not doing it", she said, adding that the crying would start up every time she tried to write her story.

The new information follows a bombshell account Hayek shared with The New York Times in December where she outlined how notoriously bad the disgraced film producer treated her during the creation of her beloved project, Frida, after she refused his advances.

The Once Upon A Time in Mexico actress also said she was "ashamed" she didn't come forward with her story sooner, noting she was approached to be a part of the first expose. And then I felt ashamed that I was a coward.

"I didn't know there was so many women". "You're reacting the way I have seen molested children act because they think they're the only ones this has happened to".

The Guardian has requested comment from Weinstein.

Mediocrity is the last thing any franchise should want, and given the Knicks' competitiveness, it's where they were headed. It's an optimistic stance, but it's also a sign of respect for what has proven to be a strong work ethic.

However, a previous statement - released after Hayek's initial New York Times editorial - read, "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". "We are told, 'You have to be the Virgin Mary, but you have to do what I say when I say, OK?"

Hayek needn't have felt this way: Uma Thurman, for one, waited until this month to tell her story, because she couldn't until now eloquently express her anger. It took me a while [after the Times called]. "Hayek alleged that "He said to Julie Taymor [Frida's director] [.] 'I am going to break the kneecaps of that 'c-word". "But he did. I was able to let go and move on", she explained. I don't want us to go from victims to angry.

The 51-year-old actress during an appearance on Winfrey's Super Soul Conversations in New York City said she was anxious about going public because she didn't want her 10-year-old daughter Valentina to know. And finally, I said it, because there was something I felt nobody had talked about which was it was not only the abuse, the sexual harassment, it's the undermining. "There always is a way out", she added.

Mr. Weinstein apologizes for his boorish behavior following a screening of Frida; prompted by his disappointment in the cut of the movie - and a reason he took a firm hand in the final edit.

On Wednesday evening, Hayek spoke in person with Oprah Winfrey for her SuperSoul Conversations series (the conversation will be available on the podcast).
