Hayek also claimed that if there hadn't been as many allegations made against Weinstein, people would have accepted his denial of her accusations.
Hayek said that although achieving equality would take time, movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp have created a serious long-lasting avenue for change.
"It is not just the producers" who have to change if the huge pay gap is to be closed. "It is actors too".
The interview took place the day after Hayek walked the Cannes red carpet with the likes of Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, A Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay, and actresses Kristen Stewart, Jane Fonda, Cate Blanchett, and Marion Cotillard, as part of a group of 82 women protesting gender inequality.
She further explained, "If actors ask such inflated fees it will leave nothing for actresses". She is developing five movies, and they are all about women, she said. That's one idea. I'm going to be hated for it. "I hope I can get another job".
For her part, Hayek celebrated the fact that it is becoming hard to hire known female writers and directors because so many of them are getting snapped up by studios. Some male actors make such high salaries that movie producers would not be able to afford paying women the same amount, she said. "The predators are hiding and terrified".
"It's an adjustment, we need to all start adjusting and work together", Hayek said.
"Time's up", the Mexican actress said. "Luckily there are so many of us, otherwise we would have been disbelieved". But she feels, "It's a very exciting time for men now".
She added she found the protest - in which more than 80 women stood on the red carpet - visually arresting: "I was really moved to see physically - which is the best way to do it, because cinema is about visual images - and I think that we talk a lot, but this image, yeah, it looked like we were a lot".
"A lot of handsome peaceful men have been the victims of the bullying of men who think that the identity of a man has to do with violence", the actress added.
The prestigious Cannes festival has come under criticism for failing to showcase more films by women directors.
