Salma Hayek Doubles Down On Accusation Trump Planted Story On Her
Salma Hayek said she absolutely thinks Donald Trump planted a story about her because she turned him down.
In a Monday press call with reporters that was to focus on what’s at stake in the election for Latinos, the 50-year old actress talked about her experience with the Republican presidential nominee and said she believes the allegations that have been brought forward against him from several women accusing him of groping and or kissing them without consent are true.

“He describes himself as a predator,” Hayek said. “Do I believe that he would do that…he said it himself. He can just go and grab woman’s, (I am not going to say the word) woman’s private parts.”
The actress was referring to lewd comments Trump made about women caught on a hot mic moment on “Access Hollywood” in 2005 between him and Billy Bush. (RELATED: Salma Hayek Begs Latinos To Vote For Hillary [VIDEO])
“Yes, she added. “He didn’t treat me badly. It’s very simple, I had a boyfriend who met him. He started befriending my boyfriend, becoming best friends with my boyfriend.”
The actress said Trump then convinced them to give him their numbers but he would “only call me not my boyfriend to ask me out on a date.”
“He did say to me ‘why are you with this guy?'” Hayek said. “‘He is a nobody. He is not right for you.'”
“I found that appalling,” she added. Adding that Trump told her “Don’t worry you will go out with me…I like a good challenge.”
“Why is National Enquirer going to ask Donald Trump that about me,” Hayek exclaimed. “I think he was trying for me to be humiliated. I am not humiliated by being short and my height has never stopped me from doing what I wanted.”
“I would never go out with Donald Trump, not my type.”
On Friday, the actress said in an interview on a Spanish language radio show that she believed Trump planted the story about her.
“Later, he called and left me a message. ‘Can you believe this? Who would say this? I don’t want people to think this about you,'” Hayek said. “He thought that I would try to go out with him so people wouldn’t think that’s why he wouldn’t go out with me.”
One of the reporters asked her why the National Enquirer story was just now coming out and why she hadn’t mentioned it in the past. She responded, “there are some really serious problems here…I am not interested in feeding the hype.”
