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

Salma Hayek says Harvey Weinstein specifically denied her Lupita Nyong’o’s allegations because they’re women of color

Salma Hayek says Harvey Weinstein specifically denied her Lupita Nyong’o’s allegations because they’re women of color

"I can't find enough female writers and directors", Hayek said.

"On these steps today stand 82 women representing the number of female directors who have climbed these stairs since the first edition of the Cannes Film Festival in 1946".

The interview took place the day after Hayek walked the Cannes red carpet with the likes of Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay, and actresses Kristen Stewart, Jane Fonda, Cate Blanchett, and Marion Cotillard, as part of a group of 82 women protesting gender inequality.

The Mexican-born star subsequently claimed that one way to achieve equality would be for actors to spurn "inflated fees".

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".

"The actors have to say: 'OK, time's up".

Shooting reported at California high school, sheriff says
The Los Angeles County sheriff's department said on Twitter Friday morning that the school has been searched and cleared. Meanwhile Antelope Valley Hospital was told several people were dead and as many as 25 students were injured, said Dr.

Some are skeptical that reducing men's pay is the way to gender parity, saying that in most industries, the pay gap emerges when men get high-skilled jobs and when women take time away from the job market to have children. "You feel it. It's a very palpable atmosphere", she added. She is developing five movies, and they are all about women, she said. "It worked. And I think we should enjoy it". "It was a strategy by the lawyers because we are the easiest to get discredited".

Actress Salma Hayek said that male actors should take a pay cut to serve as reparations for the unfair treatment and payment of women in Hollywood.

Hayek also remarked on her allegation of sexual harassment against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein in an op-ed in December. "So he went attacking the two women of color, in hopes that if he could discredit us, he could then maybe discredit the rest".

Unless they made sacrifices, she said, "it is going to be hard for equality".

Weinstein denied Hayek's accusations soon after they were published. "Men have the opportunity, which is so lovely, to rethink what does it mean to be a man", she said.
