Salma Hayek calls for pay cut for male actors

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

"A lot of attractive, peaceful men have been the victims of the bullying of men", she declared, saying it was "an exciting time" for men in Hollywood.

"Otherwise they will kill the movie", she warned.

Hayek, a prominent leader in Hollywood's Time's Up movement, was among 82 women - symbolizing the mere 82 female-directed films to have screened at Cannes, compared to 1,866 films directed by men - who protested the festival's gender inequality the previous day.

The odd thing about Weinstein's denial, Hayek noted, was not that he refuted the claims, but that he or his team said anything about them at all - most of Weinstein's sexual abuse accusers have not been directly addressed by the producer.

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.

In the interview, Kevin confirmed that there's something " definitely sort of in the works " for the character. As we all know, MCU will soon see its first solo female superhero film in the form of Captain Marvel .


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

On Monday, Cannes Film Festival artistic director, Thierry Fremaux, signed a pledge to promote gender parity and transparency at the festival.

Weinstein and his team of publicists rarely responded to allegations from individual women in the news, providing general statements and denials to the press.

Hayek accused Weinstein of threatening to "break my kneecaps" after she spurned his advances on the set of her film Frida.

"We should have been angrier sooner", she said. "If it's centered around my name, to get investors, then we can use that attention for a raft of female projects".

The meeting would be the first between a sitting USA president and a leader of North Korea . There are things to buy - but only for some people, those who have money.


The 51 year old said the protest, against female underrepresentation at Cannes and beyond, had been "very meaningful.as a woman [who] has had to go through all the struggles that all women have to go through".

She also expressed frustration over Weinstein's decision to only comment on the allegations made by women of color because they are the easiest to discredit according to her.

In the wake of the scandals that have followed Weinstein's downfall, Hayek said men in Hollywood "are terrified" and that "predators are hiding". "Men have the opportunity, which is so lovely, to rethink what does it mean to be a man".

According to Hayek, however, it is not just women who have suffered as a effect of powerful men abusing their positions.
