Uma Thurman Says Harvey Weinstein Assaulted Her

The New York Times has published a lengthy report about actress Uma Thurman, who details several sexual assaults from disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, as well as the unsupportive and physically endangering behavior of Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino.

It compounds an already heavy day for Weinstein accusations after Thurman detailed her assault at the hands of Weinstein.

Her friend Ilona Herman, who accompanied her, said that when Thurman returned she was "shaking" and said Weinstein had 'threatened to derail her career'.

Uma Thurman is speaking out about Harvey Weinstein.

The incident followed a odd meeting in Weinstein's Paris hotel room, when Weinstein stripped down to just a bathrobe during a discussion about a script. "It possibly made me overlook warning signs", she noted, before jumping into an off-kilter account she had with him in a Paris hotel room, where they discussed a script while he wore a bathrobe. What ultimately ruined Thurman and Tarantino's working relationship, she said, was an accident on the set of Kill Bill during which the director pushed her to drive a vehicle that a teamster had told her wasn't fully safe. Thurman said she warned Weinstein that if he did that to other actresses his career would be over but she couldn't remember anything else from that conversation. "There was no physical contact during Mr. Weinstein's awkward pass and Mr. Weinstein is saddened and puzzled as to "why" Ms. Thurman, someone he considers a colleague and a friend, waited 25 years to make these allegations public, noting that he and Ms. Thurman have shared a very close and mutually beneficial working relationship where they have made several very successful film projects together", the statement said. "Quentin used Harvey as the executive producer of Kill Bill, a movie that symbolizes female empowerment". While filming Kill Bill, the star of the film was asked to drive the convertible from the famous scene where she kills Bill. "When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the vehicle and I was very upset".

At the time, she said, she didn't feel threatened. "Kill Bill 2" is being shown at the festival out of competition. He tried to shove himself on me. He did all kinds of unpleasant things.

After the alleged incident, Thurman said she went back to Weinstein to try and clear things up.

"Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill me".

Thurman first spoke about Weinstein, and the Me Too movement in general, back in November. And it was so hot and I said, "This is ridiculous, what are you doing?" So I've been waiting to feel less angry.

There was a crash, captured on footage that took her 15 years to get, she says. He has apologized for causing "a lot of pain" with "the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past" but has denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex".

"Personally, it has taken me 47 years to stop calling people who are mean to you "in love" with you", Thurman writes. "I thought he was being super idiosyncratic, like this was your kooky, eccentric uncle", she recalled.
