Actress Uma Thurman came out against the disgraced Harvey Weinstein last year when she took to Instagram to finally talk on Harvey on the occasion of Thanksgiving. She posted a chilling caption to a still from Kill Bill. The movie mogul forced himself on her sexually years ago in a London hotel room. However, his attorney acknowledged making an “an awkward pass at Ms. Thurman 25 years ago which he regrets and immediately apologized for” but suggested the possibility of legal action over her comments.
H A P P Y T H A N K S G I V I N G I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others. I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn’t tell by the look on my face. I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so... 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
In a separate allegation in the New York Times article published on Saturday, February 3, the actress accused her Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino into coercing her to drive a car that she believed was faulty, resulting in injuries including a permanently damaged neck, a concussion and damage to her knees. She said, quoting him as saying, “Hit 40 miles per hour or your hair won’t blow the right way and I’ll make you do it again.” However, no statement was released by Tarantino’s representatives.
According to the video in the article which allegedly took 15 years to procure shows Thurman struggling to control the car, crashing into a tree and then being carried from the car. “That was a deathbox that I was in,” Thurman was quoted as saying.
Thurman, who also started in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, had said that just before shooting for Kill Bill Vol.1 that hit the theatres in 2003, she told Tarantino about Weinstein and he confronted the mogul, leading him to apologize.
Thurman’s allegations against Weinstein were the most anticipated since she hinted late last year that she had a story to tell. Her full story came in an interview with Times columnist Maureen Dowd. “He pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things. But he didn’t actually put his back into it and force me. You’re like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard,” she said. About her encounter she further added that, “Harvey assaulted me, but that didn’t kill me.”
