Actress Uma Thurman detailed alleged sexual assaults by disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein, in an interview Saturday.
Thurman, 47, an actress known for her roles in “Pulp Fiction” and “Kill Bill,” spoke with The New York Times about sexual misconduct by Weinstein. She alleges that he sexually assaulted her at the Savoy Hotel in London in the 1990s.
“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. But he didn’t actually put his back into it and force me. You’re like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. I was doing anything I could to get the train back on the track. My track. Not his track,” Thurman told TheNYT.
Thurman claims that the day after the alleged attack, she received yellow roses from Weinstein with the message, “You have great instincts.
The actress claims she asked Weinstein to meet her the following day at the Savoy Hotel where she tried to confront him about the attack.
“If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you,” she recalls warning the producer.
Following The New York Times’ Oct. 5 bombshell report on Weinstein, Uma Thurman wrote an Instagram post about the disgraced producer.
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
“Mr. Weinstein acknowledges making an awkward pass 25 years ago at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals, after a flirtatious exchange in Paris, for which he immediately apologized and deeply regrets,” said his spokesperson. “However, her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue,” the spokesperson added.
Weinstein is accused of sexual misconduct by at least 80 women.
