Salma Hayek: Men are weak

Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek says most men are "weak".

The actress believes women are the stronger of the sexes as they are more passionate about their feelings and beliefs.

The outspoken star claims feeling empowered comes from trusting your instincts.

"Most men are weak," Salma told British magazine Stylist. "Because of that they act like they don't care. They're scared of confrontation. They build up their lives so they don't have to deal with their feelings."

The Mexican actress also spoke about inequality between male and female salaries in Hollywood. Salma admits that there are differences between the two sexes, but she thinks women are worth just as much when it comes to work.

"The only jobs where women don't get paid less than men are pornography and modelling," Salma exclaimed. "I don't think we are the same, men and women. We're different. But I don't think we are less than men."

The strongly opinionated Savages actress thinks other females should follow in her footsteps by standing up for what they believe in.

"Make sure that what you want is what you want and not what society expects of you, or how you can impress the idiots," Salma advised.

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
