Mexican-American actress Salma Hayek is sharing her story about Harvey Weinstein in a piece for NYT, claiming he made unwanted sexual advances — involving showers, massages and sex — and threatened her throughout the production of the Oscar-winning film "Frida." She says he forced her to add a nude sex scene with another woman, claiming he would end production of the film Hayek had originally developed and starred in if she did not.

Key excerpt: "The only thing he noticed was that I was not sexy in the movie. He made me doubt if I was any good as an actress, but he never succeeded in making me think that the film was not worth making. He offered me one option to continue: He would let me finish the film if I agreed to do a sex scene with another woman. And he demanded full-frontal nudity."

Shooting the scene: Hayek describes her uncontrollable shaking and vomitting while shooting Harvey's requested scene — "It was not because I would be naked with another woman. It was because I would be naked with her for Harvey Weinstein."

Years later, Hayek says Weinstein approached and told her that he was "a changed man," and told her the film "Frida" was beautiful, despite his negativity and attempts to sabotage the film during its production. "I believed him," Hayek writes.

Worth the read: In Hayek's own words.

Rep. Lou Correa (D-Calif.) announced on Saturday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Why it matters: Correa is the latest Democratic lawmaker to share his positive test results after last week's deadly Capitol riot. Correa did not shelter in the designated safe zone with his congressional colleagues during the siege, per a spokesperson, instead staying outside to help Capitol Police.

The FBI arrested far-right media figure Tim Gionet, known as "Baked Alaska," on Saturday for his involvement in last week's Capitol riot, according to a statement of facts filed in the U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia.

The state of play: Gionet was arrested in Houston on charges related to disorderly or disruptive conduct on the Capitol grounds or in any of the Capitol buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session, per AP.
