Salma Hayek Details Harassment By Harvey Weinstein on ‘Frida’
Salma Hayek added her voice Wednesday to the growing list of women accusing Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment.

In an New York Times essay, the actress called Weinstein her “monster” and detailed her experiences while working on the 2002 Miramax-produced film “Frida.”

Hayek outlined the various demands Weinstein asked of her, including showering with him, letting him watch her take a shower, giving him a massage, performing oral sex on him and opening the doors to him at all hours of the night.

“The absurdity of his demands went from getting a furious call in the middle of the night asking me to fire my agent for a fight he was having with him about a different movie with a different client to physically dragging me out of the opening gala of the Venice Film Festival,” she wrote.

Hayek specifies that the price she suffered for rebuffing his attempts at sexual activity was to endure his continued rage.

Inside the Biggest Royal Scandal Ever: How King Edward VIII's Explosive Affair With Wallis Simpson Changed the Course of History

Inside the Biggest Royal Scandal Ever: How King Edward VIII's Explosive Affair With Wallis Simpson Changed the Course of History
King Edward VIII's reign began on Jan. 20, 1936. Less than 12 months later, England had a new king. Regardless of how fascinated people would become by Princess Diana decades later or how heated royal baby fever can get to this day, it was Edward's decision to give up his throne for love 81 years ago that entirely altered the course of the monarchy. Many might wonder why he couldn't do as he darn well pleased, considering he was the literal King of England. Quite possibly, if a similar scenario presented itself now, perhaps it would go a different way.  But back then, the United Kingdom's sovereign monarch marrying a twice-divorced American woman just wouldn't do at...

Justin Bieber Works on His Dance Moves to Ed Sheeran’s ‘Perfect’: Watch!
Does Selena Gomez have a private performance in her future? On Wednesday night, Justin Bieber took to Instagram to show off his moves.

The 23-year-old “Sorry” singer wasn’t choreographing to his own music, though. In two separate videos, the Biebs spun and flipped to Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect.”

The slow, romantic tune doesn’t exactly lend itself to any extreme moves, but Bieber looked very passionate as he tried out his interpretive moves.

“I’m gonna get this dance thing down,” he captioned one of the clips.

Back in August, Bieber cancelled the remaining 12 dates of his Purpose tour, penning a heartfelt message to his fans.
