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.

Brooklyn Beckham Gets Sweet New Tattoo to Honor His Siblings -- See the Pic!
Like father, like son!

Brooklyn Beckham took to Instagram on Wednesday to show off his newest tattoo, which reads, "0 2 0 5 1 1."

The numbers symbolize the years his three younger siblings -- brothers Romeo and Cruz and sister Harper -- were born, in 2002, 2005 and 2011, respectively.

The sentimental body art was inked onto Brooklyn's right arm by tattoo artist, Mr. K, who works out of the famed Bang Bang NYC shop.

And that's not the only fresh ink the 18-year-old college student has gotten done this month alone. Just last week, he showed off a chest tat of a cherub that was created by Dr. Woo, a celeb tattoo artist in Los Angeles.

Brooklyn got his first tattoo in April, but he's since added a slew of designs to his body, including "Mama's Boy" written on his chest in honor of his mother, Victoria Beckham.

Earlier this year, Brooklyn's heavily tattooed dad, David Beckham, told James Corden that he
