Cannes 2018: Female stars protest on red carpet for equal rights

Cannes 2018: Female stars protest on red carpet for equal rights

"Time's up", the Mexican actress said. I had a good run but now it's also time to be generous with the actresses in the films'. "It is actors too". Emma Stone revealed that throughout her career some men have taken pay cuts in order to increase her salary.

Speaking at Cannes, Hayek said Weinstein specifically contested her claim and that of Lupita Nyong'o because they are women of colour.

The Desperado and Frida star said her fellow actresses should be "both impatient and patient and continue the pressure" against gender inequality.

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". "If the movie's budget is $10 million, the [male] actor has to understand that if he is making $9.7 million, it is going to be hard for equality". "Otherwise they will kill the movie".

"The men are terrified".

The odd thing about Weinstein's denial, Hayek noted, was not that he refuted the claims, but that he or his team said anything about them at all - most of Weinstein's sexual abuse accusers have not been directly addressed by the producer. "You feel this very palpable atmosphere".

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.

Weinstein denied Hayek's accusations soon after they were published.

French actress Lea seydoux showed her cleavage and slender legs in a dress by Louis Vuitton. "If somebody talked, they would cover it up somehow".

"A lot of handsome, peaceful men have been the victims of the bullying of men", she declared, saying it was "an exciting time" for men in Hollywood.

She added she found the protest - in which more than 80 women stood on the red carpet - visually arresting: "I was really moved to see physically - which is the best way to do it, because cinema is about visual images - and I think that we talk a lot, but this image, yeah, it looked like we were a lot".

Only 82 films in competition in the official selection have been directed by women over the past 71 years of the festival whereas 1,645 films have been directed by men.
