Hollywood actress, Salma Hayek while speaking on a recent radio interview confirmed the sexual assault allegation against Donald Trump.
Hayek, 50, said that she believed the accusations based on her own experience with the Republican candidate.
The actress claimed her experience with Trump was when he planted a tabloid story about her supposedly calling her “too short,” because she refused to date him.
According to Buzzfeed, Hayek said: “When I met that man (Trump), I had a boyfriend, and he tried to become his friend to get my home telephone number. He got my number and he would call me to invite me out.”
“When I told him I wouldn’t go out with him even if I didn’t have a boyfriend, [which he took as disrespectful], he called – well, he wouldn’t say he called, but someone told the National Enquirer,” she continued.
“Someone told the National Enquirer – I’m not going to say who, because you know that whatever he wants to come out comes out in the National Enquirer. It said that he wouldn’t go out with me because I was too short.”
Hayek, a Hillary Clinton supporter, also remembered how Trump, 70, continued to contact her even after planting the gossip story.
“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,’” she 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.”
Trump is yet to respond to Hayek’s claims.
