Salma Hayek Tells Oprah That Harvey Weinstein Threatened to Break Her Kneecaps

Salma Hayek

Hayek first detailed the sexual harassment she allegedly experienced at the hands of Weinstein in a lengthy op-ed for The New York Times back in December, describing what she says she went through during the making of her 2002 Miramax film, "Frida".

As we reported, the actress claimed Weinstein threatened to kill her after she refused his advances and was emotionally abusive during the filming of the 2002 biopic Frida.

She said: '[The New York 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. "I felt ashamed that I was a coward. I was supporting women for two decades and then I was a coward", she continued.

"I have my own experiences that have come back to me very vividly, and I find it really hard to sleep, hard to think, hard to communicate a lot of the feelings that I've been having about anxiety, honest, the guilt for not speaking up earlier", she said. I thought I was the only one. "When it came out, then I was ashamed that I didn't speak up", she expressed. The producer forced her to do a gratuitous sex scene for Frida with fellow accuser Ashley Judd, and the actress broke down on set. "He claimed that my name as an actress was not big enough and that I was incompetent as a producer", Hayek wrote, after sharing the legal struggle she entered with Weinstein following his attempts to remove her from the film.

"They contacted me to be a part of the first story, the New York Times ..."

"I don't want to get into the details. because we have more important things to talk about. but I was depressed", Hayek noted.

Hayek said in conversation with the TV host on Wednesday, that Weinstein told the film's director, Julie Taymor: 'I am going to break the kneecaps of that C-word'.

Salma, who sat with Oprah Winfrey today during Oprah's Super Soul Conversation Live Event, reveals she had the opportunity to speak sooner- but she chose to remain silent at the time.

Hayek told Oprah she "felt like [her] pain was so small compared to all the other stories", though she certainly bared the brunt of Weinstein's tyrannical on-set harassment, like many other women.

"There is a moment, and I feel like it's human, where I was like, there's no point for me to talk because it just happens to everyone, and then I felt that by itself, it was just my own little drama". "We are told, 'You have to be the Virgin Mary, but you have to do what I say when I say, OK?"

"We have to stop apologizing for being attacked", she said. I thought of my daughter. I can use that energy to be productive, ' Hayek said.

The Guardian has requested comment from Weinstein.
