The 51-year-old actor was one of the dozens of women who came forward in 2017 to accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment.

Her refusals of massages, showers and sex enraged him, she wrote, adding: "I don't think he hated anything more than the word "no". "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.

This comes on the heals of Hayek opening up and discussing the accusations surrounding disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

"It is a well-known fact, that if you are a woman of color, people believe in you less, and believe what you say less".

"Personally, as a woman that has been part of this community and has had to go through the struggles that all women have had to go through, it's an important step to see this happen", she said. "It is happening", she said. She said he specifically contested her and Lupita Nyongo'o claims because they were the "easiest to get discredited" as women of colour.

"This is a new era for men", 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".

The comments come after Weinstein's lawyers insisted: "All of the sexual allegations as portrayed by Salma are not accurate and others who witnessed the events have a different account of what transpired". In subsequent months, his team also disputed Rose McGowan's rape allegation and released a series of photos of Weinstein with accuser Uma Thurman meant to "demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman had had over the years".
