Cate Blanchett Just Led a Women's March at Cannes

Sofia Boutella Salma Hayek Patty Jenkins Claudia Cardinale and other filmaker walk on the red carpet in protest of the lack of female filmmakers honored throughout the history of the festival at the screening of 'Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du So

"He only responded to two women, to women of color", Hayek told Vanity Fair at the Cannes Film Festival this week. "If the movie's budget is $10 million, the [male] actor has to understand that if he is making $9.7m, it is going to be hard for equality", Hayek added.

Hayek said that although achieving equality would take time, movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp have created a serious long-lasting avenue for change.

In a conversation Sunday as part of the "Women in Motion" talk series at Cannes, Hayek said her production company is having trouble keeping up with the demand for female writers and directors. Some male actors make such high salaries that movie producers would not be able to afford paying women the same amount, she said.

In a discussion with the Radio Times, Cumberbatch called on male actors to step up to the plate and refuse to take more money than what their female counterparts were being paid, even going as far as to reject work outright. She is developing five movies, and they are all about women, she said.

But she said the #MeToo movement also is a great time for men "to rethink what it means to be a man".

Madrid Open: Thiem ends Nadal's unbeaten run
Bertens had already stunned world No 2 Caroline Wozniacki and five-time grand slam champion Maria Sharapova earlier in the week. He also beat Thiem in the final here at Caja Magica a year ago, though that was a bit more hard at 7-6 (8), 6-4.

At Cannes 2018, there are only three women filmmakers out of a total 21, which led to a protest and festival director Thierry Fremaux said that the festival would look to select more films directed by female filmmakers in the future. The actress-producer said she's sold four TV shows about women this year.

Hayek said Weinstein specifically contested her claim and that of Lupita Nyong'o because they're women of colour.

While Weinstein and his team issued generic denials of many women's accusations, Hayek's and Nyong'o's allegations were among the small handful they addressed by name. It also went on to state that all the women from the fraternity were standing as a symbol of determination and progress, which they will all climb together. "So he went back attacking the two women of color, in hopes of discrediting. if he could discredit us, which would be easier for the audience, the readers, to not believe us, he could then maybe discredit the rest".

"The men are terrified", she said. "Men have the opportunity, which is so attractive, to rethink what does it mean to be a man", she said.
