Actress says change has 'already happened' after Cannes red carpet protest

Both Salma Hayek and Lupita Nyong’o have accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment

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

"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".

NES Classic To Re-Release June 29
In addition to featuring 30 of the best games from the system, the NES Classic is much smaller, portable, and connects via HDMI. " NES Classic Edition will return to stores on June 29!" If you weren't able to nab one the first time around-you're in luck.

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".

SoftBank in Talks with Walmart on Selling its Flipkart Stake
Also, SoftBank does not want to exit Flipkart because such an exit would mean that SoftBank is leaving Indian e-commerce industry. Walmart founder Sam Walton's grandson, Steuart Walton, is reportedly likely to join Flipkart's board of directors.

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.
