Washington: Sexual harassment is widely surfacing now with many females across the globe reporting it which is unmasking the dirty faces behind the white collar and also the Political dignitaries.
Recently Mexican-American Actress Salma Hayek has broken her silence of the alleged sexual harassment she had gone through, describing the ‘Hollywood mogul’ Harvey Weinstein as a rage-fuelled “monster”, who had repeatedly harassed the actress and also threatened to kill her in the past.
“With every refusal came Harvey’s Machiavellian rage,” she wrote. “I don’t think he hated anything more than the word ‘no.'”
Her article in the New York Times said Weinstein once told her: “I will kill you, don’t think I can’t,” BBC reported on Wednesday.
Previously dozens of actresses which included Rose McGowan, Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow had alleged sexual harassment by famous Hollywood Moghul Mr Weinstein.
However, Mr. Weinstein had dismissed all the allegations of non-consensual sex.
Her article in New York Times stated while working on her “greatest ambition” – Oscar Nominated Movie ‘Frida’ – a story of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, with Wienstein, was when she it was her turn to say ‘NO’.
She said, she repeatedly declined his various advancements. Her article read,
“No to me taking a shower with him.
“No to letting him watch me take a shower.
“No to letting him give me a massage.
“No to letting a naked friend of his give me a massage.
“No to letting him give me oral sex.
“No to my getting naked with another woman.”
She also accused Weinstein of threatening to shut her movie Frida down unless she agreed on doing a nude scene with another female actress.
She said though during the shooting of the scene the thought that she was nude with another actress for him made her body cry.
“I had to take a tranquilizer, which eventually stopped the crying but made the vomiting worse,” she recalled.
“As you can imagine, this was not sexy, but it was the only way I could get through the scene.”
“By the time the filming of the movie was over, I was so emotionally distraught that I had to distance myself during the postproduction,” she wrote.
However, Frida eventually gathered 6 Oscar nominations, including a Best Actress nod for Hayek, The Quint reported.
