Uma Thurman Breaks Silence on Harvey Weinstein ‘Attack’

Actress Uma Thurman has finally shared her own story of alleged assault by Harvey Weinstein, months after sparking intrigue by saying she’d need to wait for her anger to subside on the issue. “I used the word ‘anger’ but I was more worried about crying, to tell you the truth,” Thurman told The New York Times in an interview published Saturday. Thurman, who worked closely with Weinstein for Kill Bill, says he subjected her to an “attack” at a London hotel before the first film in the saga came out in 2003. “It was such a bat to the head. He pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things,” she told the Times. Thurman reportedly told a friend at the time that Weinstein had threatened to sabotage her career when she confronted him. “I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone, the way I did. Quentin used Harvey as the executive producer of Kill Bill, a movie that symbolizes female empowerment. 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,” she said.
