Hayek is one of a raft of actresses who have made sexual misconduct allegations against disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. "The prestigious Palme d'Or has been bestowed upon 71 male directors-too numerous to mention by name-but only two women".
Hayek said it was hard to hire known female writers and directors in the U.S. now, as studios are snapping them up trying to catch up with the public mood. "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.
The actress claimed she turned down his requests, and alleged the producer even threatened to kill her. "I hope that adding my voice to the chorus of those who are finally speaking out will shed light on why it is so hard, and why so many of us have waited so long", she wrote.
Hayek said that although achieving equality would take time, movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp have created a serious long-lasting avenue for change.
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.
During a career talk at the festival, she also said the current backlash against sexual harassment in the film industry meant "men are terrified".
Hayek said men should not be afraid of change in the gender balance. Now is the time for female film makers to show audiences and industry leaders, "look what you were missing all this time", she said.
"We should have been angrier soon".
Hayek went on, "It's a proven fact that women of colour are less listened to. Men have the opportunity, which is so lovely, to rethink what does it mean to be a man". "As women, we all face our own unique challenges, but we stand together on these stairs today as a symbol of our determination and commitment to progress".
