Among the 82 women standing in protest was the actress, producer and director Salma Hayek Pinault, a leading voice in the #MeToo and Times Up movements and among the dozens of women who have accused Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct. "You had a good run but it is time now to be generous with the actresses". "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.

"It is not just the producers", Hayek said Sunday at a Women in Motion talk at the Cannes Film Festival.

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.

"It was a strategy by the lawyers, because we are the easiest to get discredited", Hayek said.

Her refusals of massages, showers and sex enraged him, she wrote, adding: "I don't think he hated anything more than the word "no". It is a well-known fact, if you are a woman of color, people believe what you say less.

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.

"Black Panther" star Lupita Nyong'o described her own alleged predatory encounters with Weinstein in a New York Times piece published in October. The actress-producer said she's sold four TV shows about women this year.

While Weinstein and his team issued generic denials of many women's accusations, Hayek's and Nyong'o's allegations were among the small handful they addressed by name.

Hayek said that although achieving equality would take time, movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp have created a serious long-lasting avenue for change.

"It is a very exciting time for men now".

"The men are terrified", she said. Because men have the opportunity to rethink what it means to be a man, and this comes with a lot of freedom. "We should have come together sooner - that is what did it", Hayek, who was nominated for an Oscar for "Frida", told reporters.
