Uma Thurman Accuses Harvey Weinstein Of Sexual Assault; Producer Denies Allegation

The actress, who starred in several blockbusters produced by Weinstein, gave a bombshell interview to The New York Times where she details a series of disturbing incidents, including an alleged assault in his London hotel room.

Her friend was told to wait outside the room on a couch and Thurman recalled telling Weinstein, "If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you".

Thurman described what she called the first "attack" at London's Savoy hotel. From allegedly having a conversation in a bathrobe to allegedly trying to push her down and get sexual, there were many "unpleasant things" that Harvey did according to Uma.

"I just walked away stunned, like "ok, well there's my half-assed apology", Thurman says. "It's a straight piece of road.'" He persuaded her to do it, and instructed: "'Hit 40 miles per hour or your hair won't blow the right way and I'll make you do it again.' But that was a deathbox that I was in.

But the actress said her negative relationship with Weinstein also affected her interactions with Tarantino. "You're like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard". He tried to shove himself on me. "But he didn't actually put his back into it and force me", she said of the incident, for which she didn't specify a date. While her memory of the encounter is blank, she seems to allude to another assault taking place.

Then, Thurman breaks into the time Tarantino may have tried killing her to silence her. "So, I've been waiting to feel less angry and when I'm ready I'll say what I've got to say".

Harvey Weinstein has denied the allegations, releasing a statement through a spokesperson which acknowledged her account of the episodes but said that up until the Paris steam room, they had had "a flirtatious and fun working relationship". "Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators - I'm glad it's going slowly - you don't deserve a bullet) -stay tuned Uma".

Thurman also accused Tarantino, 54, of making a risky executive decision on the set of Kill Bill that left her with permanent injuries.

In Thurman's words, the number of women who have come forth with allegations against Weinstein since October 2017 and the way she was treated during a auto crash on the set of the 2003 movie Kill Bill convinced her to come forward.

In late November, Uma Thurman shared an Instagram post condemning producer Harvey Weinstein.

More than 50 women including stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Mira Sorvino have accused 65-year-old Weinstein of sexual abuse and harassment, though he has denied forcing himself on anyone. "So what you really saw was a person buying time".

His legal team also claimed that the fact there are a "number of images" of Weinstein and Uma together over the years should prove the fact there wasn't a problem between them. "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", she told reporters in October. Thurman claims both Weinstein and Tarantino turned on her after the crash.

Herman said Thurman told her that Weinstein had threatened to end her career.
