Her refusals — of massages, showers and sex — enraged him, she wrote. When Hayek brought Frida, which she was producing, to Miramax to distribute, Weinstein made outrageous demands as payback. Hayek said he insisted on rewrites, more financing and, most heinously to her, a sex scene with full frontal nudity. He even threated to kill her, she said. In order to finish what was a labor of love for Hayek, she agreed. But she said she had a nervous breakdown while shooting the scene.

Salma Hayek says Harvey Weinstein forced her to do sex scene in 'Frida'
Actress Salma Hayek said Wednesday that disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein threatened to shut down production of her dream movie, "Frida," unless "I agreed to do a sex scene with another woman. There was no room for negotiation. I had to say yes. Hayek, 51, said she was motivated to tell her harrowing story about the man she refers to as "my monster" by the flood of women who have come forward with accusations of sexual misconduct against Weinstein. Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sexual encounters.
Harvey Weinstein was a passionate cinephile, a risk taker, a patron of talent in film, a loving father and a monster. This fall, I was approached by reporters, through different sources, including my dear friend Ashley Judd, to speak about an episode in my life that, although painful, I thought I had made peace with. I had brainwashed myself into thinking that it was over and that I had survived; I hid from the responsibility to speak out with the excuse that enough people were already involved in shining a light on my monster.
