"It was a strategy by the lawyers because we are the easiest to get discredited".

Salma Hayek, Sofia Boutella and filmmakers walk the red carpet in protest of the lack of female filmmakers honored throughout the history of the festival.

So hard, in fact, "otherwise they will kill the movie", Hayek quipped.

"Time's up", the Mexican actress said.

She also expressed frustration over Weinstein's decision to only comment on the allegations made by women of color because they are the easiest to discredit according to her.

She said they had also targeted the testimony of "Black Panther" star Lupita Nyong'o knowing that "women of colour are believed less".

Hayek said Weinstein's direct responses were only to herself, and the accusations lodged against him by Nyong'o. The actress-producer said she had sold four TV shows about women this year.

While he was producing the 2002 film "Frida", in which Hayek starred, Weinstein insisted that she add an unscripted sex scene with another woman, complete with full-frontal nudity.

In the wake of the scandals that have followed Weinstein's downfall, Hayek said men in Hollywood "are terrified" and that "predators are hiding".

"Time's up. You had a good run but it is time now to be generous with the actresses", she said.

Hayek's talk is one of several events during the world's most famous film festival highlighting the treatment of women in the industry. "Because men have the opportunity to rethink what it means to be a man, and this comes with a lot of freedom".
