Salma Hayek said she will be “hated for saying this,” when in actuality she will be laughed at.
Actress Salma Hayek has a message for her male counterparts claiming to be pro-“equality”: It’s time to take some pay cuts.
“Time’s up. You had a good run but it is time now to be generous with the actresses,” Hayek told a Women in Motion talk at the Cannes Festival, where she led a group of women down the red carpet in a march of MeToo/Time’s up solidarity.
“If actors ask such inflated fees it will leave nothing for actresses,” she said, AFP reports. “If the movie’s budget is $10 million, the 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.”
No, Salma, YOU have to understand that if a particular actor is the reason movies they are in are successful you don’t deserve the same amount of money. It doesn’t work that way.
If for some reason some up and coming actress is chosen to star alongside Tom Hanks in his next movie, she does not deserve to ride the coattails of Tom Hanks’ box office success and command the same salary.
As long as scale wages are the same for men and women then what’s the problem?
This is why women should never be allowed into men’s sports. Salma Hayek would be demanding the same amount of money Mike Trout is making.
Maybe Salma should invest some of the money she makes for some speech lessons. She’d make more at the box-office if I could understand what the hell she is saying.
On a side note-
In the clip below Samuel L. Jackson laughs at the notion that Donald Trump asked Salma Hayek to go out on a date, as if the juxtaposition is laughable.
Ahhahhahahahahahahahaahahaaaaaaaaaathis is her husband—>
