"If the movie's budget is $10 million, the [male] actor has to understand that if he is making $9.7m, it is going to be hard for equality", Hayek added. "I hope I can get a job after this!"

Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek, a vocal campaigner against sexual harassment in the movie industry, says male stars should get less pay as a way to even things up with chronically underpaid women.

Salma Hayek Pinault, center, filmakers and actresses raise their arms in solidarity for women during the Cannes Film Festival in France on May 12.

It will not only require fearless salary negotiation, but it might require some male actors to give up a portion of their inflated salary in order to be able to pay women salaries that are on par with theirs, she said.

Hayek said it was hard to hire known female writers and directors in the United States now, as studios are snapping them up trying to catch up with the public mood. "The predators are hiding and terrified. You feel this very palpable atmosphere".

Thunderstorm hits Delhi: 40 flights diverted, Metro services affected
According to police, PCR ( Police Control Room) received 391 calls about various incidents related to the storm till 2100 hours. A dust storm accompanied by squall on Sunday hit the national capital after a scorching hot morning bringing down the mercury.

But she warned that "pay disparity is going to take a while. because they still want to pay you the exploitative salary they paid you before".

Hayek urged women to shift their focus from advocacy to action. He later challenged allegations by N'yongo, who said Weinstein sexually harassed her in 2011 while she was still a college student.

Weinstein and his team of publicists rarely responded to allegations from individual women in the news, providing general statements and denials to the press.

Hayek said Weinstein specifically contested her claim and that of Lupita Nyong'o because they're women of color. It is a proven fact unfortunately.

"We should have come together, because that's what's made a difference".

Brooklyn Nine-Nine saved by NBC
ABC's terrorism drama Quantico will not see a fourth season and its season 3 finale will now serve as the series ender. After its cancellations at Fox, cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been revived at NBC for a 13-episode sixth season.

In one of the most vivid accounts of Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual harassment, Hayek said the mogul became her nightmare with relentless advances and a death threat.

"It is a very exciting time for men now". "Time's up. You had a good run, but it is time now to be generous with the actresses", she said.

"A lot of lovely peaceful men have been the victims of the bullying of men who think that the identity of a man has to do with violence", the actress added.

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

At a Women in Motion talk at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday, the #MeToo and Time's Up activist said that if men were serious about fixing the gender pay gap, they would have to take a cut in their own pay.
