Salma Hayek spoke about the harassment of Harvey Weinstein
The actress admitted that it took her many years to heal the wounds and work through the trauma inflicted by Harvey Weinstein.

The actress wrote an essay for The New York Times called вЂњHarvey Weinstein is a monster for me,вЂќ in which she openly spoke about harassment by a producer while working on the film "Frida". The film about the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo earned Hayek an Oscar nomination.
