Uma Thurman Alleges She Was 'Attacked' By Harvey Weinstein on Multiple Occasions

Thurman is known for her roles in Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill: both creations stemming from the filmmaking partnership of Quentin Tarantino and Weinstein.

Thurman, 47, told The New York Times in an interview published Saturday of two incidents in London that took place after the release of 1994's "Pulp Fiction".

Thurman additionally alleges that her animosity with Weinstein changed her relationship to Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill series director Quentin Tarantino, who distributed his films through Miramax and The Weinstein Company until allegations of serial sexual misconduct emerged in October 2016.

Afterwards, she says Weinstein made an unwanted advance in a hotel room during an argument, and later "pushed me down". This is the story many have been waiting for since early November, when Thurman declined to speak about the Weinstein scandal, saying, "I've been waiting to feel less angry".

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. "I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone.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".

It followed a previous meeting in a Paris hotel room where Weinstein stripped to his bathrobe during a discussion about a script, while a later incident left Thurman shaken after he allegedly threatened her career - according to friend and make-up artist Ilona Harman who had met her after the meeting. Thurman says Weinstein sent her flowers the next day, with a note that read, "You have great instincts".

In the piece, Thurman expresses her complex feelings about what happened and wrestles with feeling guilty over other women who were assaulted after her.

A spokeswoman for Weinstein said he had apologised to Thurman for making an "awkward pass" at her 25 years ago, but her claims about being physically assaulted were untrue.

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. While filming Kill Bill, the star of the film was asked to drive the convertible from the famous scene where she kills Bill. She then crashed in the vehicle, and badly injured her head, neck and knees. Thurman said of Tarantino. "Kill Bill 2" is being shown at the festival out of competition. "And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me".

"He did all kinds of unpleasant things", she said. She also let Weinstein know that he didn't "deserve a bullet" while wishing a happy Thanksgiving to all except him and his conspirators. He said: 'I promise you the auto is fine. She recalls, "The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me... 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". "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. Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill me. Her working relationship with Tarantino was also damaged. "He was furious because I'd cost them a lot of time".
