Uma Thurman Reveals Harvey Weinstein Assaulted Her

In a new conversation with the New York Times, Thurman recalled the sexual misconduct she faced from Weinstein and an terrible accident on the set of Kill Bill.

The actress claims Weinstein would spend "hours" complimenting her after they got to know one another in the mid-Nineties.

Uma didn't feel comfortable driving the auto and says a teamster led her to believe the vehicle might not be working well.

'I was standing there in my full black leather outfit - boots, pants, jacket. "They were yellow. And I opened the note like it was a soiled diaper and it just said, 'You have great instincts.'" Then, she says, Weinstein's assistants started calling again to talk about projects.

It was such a bat to the head. He pushed me down.

Thurman told the New York Times that Weinstein tried to push her down and shove himself on top of her and attempted to expose himself.

"He did all kinds of unpleasant things", she said.

Thurman first spoke about Weinstein, and the Me Too movement in general, back in November. You're like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. "What really got me about the crash was that it was a cheap shot. My track. Not his track".

Now, in the aforementioned new interview with the NYT, the actress has finally shared her own stories about the producer. And it was so hot and I said, 'This is ridiculous, what are you doing?'

It compounds an already heavy day for Weinstein accusations after Thurman detailed her assault at the hands of Weinstein. "Mr. Weinstein acknowledges making a pass at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals in Paris", a rep for Weinstein told the Times.

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

"Her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue".

In Nov. 2017, Uma was asked about the Weinstein scandal by Access Hollywood, and answered with a measured, tense response. "Because I have learned-I am not a child, and I have learned that when I've spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself". And judging from what she had to say, one can see why she is so angry. She then walked the Times through how she questioned how safe it was for her to drive the vehicle Tarantino wanted her to in a particular scene, one that had her speeding down a winding, sandy road, and that he insisted she do so in spite of her discomfort. "Stay tuned", she wrote.

But Weinstein isn't the only man that Uma is angry with.

Two weeks after the crash, after trying to see the auto and footage of the incident, she had her lawyer send a letter to Miramax, summarizing the event and reserving the right to sue. Thurman says she doesn't remember what happened next.

Quentin Tarantino, 54, is also shouldering some of the blame for Uma's pain.

The Kill Bill star let Dowd know that after that terrible encounter, she saw Weinstein to confront him on his attempted assault. She recalled that while being led down a hotel hallway by Weinstein, whom she initially had a pleasant working relationship with, during a meeting, "I didn't feel threatened.I thought he was being super idiosyncratic, like this was your kooky, eccentric uncle".
