Uma Thurman Breaks Her Silence On Weinstein, And Tarantino

Uma Thurman Opens Up on Nightmarish Weinstein Experience: 'He Tried to Expose Himself'

She said he pushed her down and tried to shove himself on her and expose himself.

In the story, published Saturday, Thurman says that Weinstein attacked her at the Savoy Hotel in London after the release of the 1994 Quentin Tarantino-directed film, which was produced and distributed by Weinstein's company Miramax.

After the alleged incident, Thurman said she went back to Weinstein to try and clear things up. You're like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. "And it was so hot and I said, 'This is ridiculous, what are you doing?' And he was getting very flustered and mad and he jumped up and ran out". "My track. Not his track".

Thurman's allegations against Weinstein had been widely anticipated since she hinted late a year ago that she had a story to tell about the beleaguered movie mogul, who has been accused of sexual misconduct against many women, but wanted to wait until she was less angry.

Dishing on the truth behind her decision to wait until she was less "angry", Thurman added, "I used the word "anger" but I was more anxious about crying, to tell you the truth..."

"I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone, the way I did", Thurman said.

Uma Thurman emotionally describes Harvey Weinstein's alleged abuses and claims Quentin Tarantino failed to protect her from a stunt crash. "And all these lambs walked into slaughter because they were convinced nobody rises to such a position who would do something illegal to you, but they do".

Reps for Thurman and Tarantino did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment.

Weinstein's representatives say he acknowledges making an "awkward pass" but denies physical assault. Thurman details how she remained firm with Weinstein but her memory of the incident fades in the story.

Kobo and Walmart in e-reader alliance against Amazon
Walmart, as odd as it may seem at first blush, announced today that it will begin offering ebooks in the U.S. as well. That is likely to boost Kobo's tiny share of the USA e-books market share and turn it into a serious contender.

"She was really shaking", Herman said, adding that Thurman told her that Weinstein had threatened to end her career.

The latest allegations were made to United Kingdom police on November 13, although they have only just become public.

"Quentin came in my trailer and didn't like to hear no, like any director", she says. He said: 'I promise you the vehicle is fine.

She followed that up a few weeks later with an Instagram message stating that she was grateful to all those who have stood up and that she felt it was important for her to take her time and be exact with what she had to say. "And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me".

Since the attack happened, Thurman said she could only tolerate being in supervised group settings with the 65-year-old, believing that she had "aged out of the window of his assault range, ' and received a 'half-assed apology" from him years later after confronting him once again.

Thurman detailed occasions on which she rebuffed Weinstein's advances.

We encourage you to read the whole interview, because there is a lot of nuance and also a bit about how Uma's dad thinks she is a reincarnated goddess, which I now agree with.

Thurman's knees and neck were badly damaged in the crash, leaving her with health problems that persist to this day. "Personally, it has taken me 47 years to stop calling people who are mean to you "in love" with you", she stated.
