82 women walk the red carpet in Cannes film fest protest

82 women walk the red carpet in Cannes film fest protest

Hayek is one of a raft of actresses who have made sexual misconduct allegations against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

"So, he went attacking the two women of colour, in hopes that if he could discredit us, he could then maybe discredit the rest", Hayek told Variety during Women In Motion panel discussion at Cannes Film Festival. "I hope I can get another job".

Prior to those denials, Weinstein addressed actress Ashley Judd's sexual harassment accusation in October, telling Page Six she was "going through a tough time right now".

US-Mexican actor Salma Hayek Pinault (C), Algerian actress Sofia Boutella (2ndR) and directors, actresses and industry representatives pose on the red carpet in protest of the lack of female filmmakers honored throughout the history of the festival.

Organizers said the event was orchestrated by the Time's Up movement and the French movement known as 5020×2020 to show "how hard it is still to climb the social and professional ladder" for women.

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

"The men are terrified", she said.

Juventus clinch seventh consecutive Serie A title
Dybala had put the ball in the back of the net at the start of the second half but the Argentina forward was narrowly offside. Second-placed Napoli won at Sampdoria, but a point was enough to give Juventus their 34th top-flight title.

Over the course of her career, Hayek has seen tangible signs that the conversation around women's equality in film has shifted, saying it was tempting to fall into the "trap" of focusing on what needs to be done without acknowledging how much has changed.

But she said the #MeToo movement also is a great time for men "to rethink what it means to be a man".

It will require not only fearless salary negotiation, but also, perhaps, some male actors' giving up a portion of their inflated salaries to be able to pay women salaries that are on par with theirs, she said.

At Cannes 2018, there are only three women filmmakers out of a total 21, which led to a protest and festival director Thierry Fremaux said that the festival would look to select more films directed by female filmmakers in the future.

"He only responded to two women, two women of color", Hayek said, referencing another statement Weinstein issued against Lupita Nyong'o.

"It's not just the producers", Hayek said.

She counseled young women working in film to find a way to channel their frustrations about inequality and sexual harassment in the workplace by taking "what would become anger, indignation, humiliation and turn that into productivity".
