The actor also told Winfrey that she had had similar experiences of sexual harassment earlier in her life, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Over the course of the post-Weinstein reckoning and the #MeToo movement, it's become unfortunately clear that the more gruesome and explicit the details of the assault, the more the victims are believed; take the rare hard evidence of audio of Weinstein doing his best to convince an Italian model to come into his hotel room, or the fact it took the revelation that the director James Toback, whom hundreds of women have accused of sexual misconduct, threatened to gouge Selma Blair's eyes out if she spoke about their encounter that pushed her story into the headlines, months after she first spoke out.

Hayek noted that she also hesitated because she hadn't told her husband what happened between her and Weinstein and she "thought of all these different things including my child, I didn't want to talk about it".

She told Oprah that "I felt like my pain was so small" than others.

"They contacted me to be a part of the first story", Hayek said, referring to the October article that broke the Weinstein scandal, "and already by this contact, there was all this turmoil and I started crying when they asked and I ended up not doing it", she said.

After alleging Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her, Salma Hayek has spoken out against the shamed Hollywood producer again. "I felt ashamed that I was a coward". I was supporting women for two decades but I couldn't do this.

She recounted in The Times that Weinstein threatened to kill her and pressured her into filming a nude sex scene with a female co-star. I am a short, Mexican-Arab, angry woman. but I don't let that anger blur my vision. "He said to ['Frida" director] Julie Taymor, "I am going to break the kneecaps of that 'c word'". "You have to be attractive but you cannot be too attractive because then you are telling me that I can do whatever I want with you.' What the f*ck is with you?" "I think that sometimes we underestimate our efforts. and the power that it has for change".

More than 75 women have now come forward to accuse the film maker of sexual harassment, abuse and rape - among them Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Beckinsale and Lupita Nyong'o. "For years, he was my monster", she wrote in the essay, which details his increasing fury to Hayek rejecting his forceful advances. "I couldn't get out".

Salma Hayek has detailed more threats of physical violence made by Harvey Weinstein on the set of Frida.

She added, "All these efforts of every single one of you, they pile up until there is an explosion".

"By Mr Weinstein's own admission, his boorish behaviour following a screening of 'Frida" was prompted by his disappointment in the cut of the movie'.

The special SuperSoul Conversations at the Apollo Theater will air on February 27 on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
