'He pushed me down': Uma Thurman alleges Harvey Weinstein made unwanted advance

Thurman, who worked with the disgraced independent movie mogul on seven films, said their relationship quickly went from professional to toxic one day during the filming of the Quentin Tarantino-directed drama Pulp Fiction. He used to spend hours talking to me about material and complimenting my mind, validating me. But that didn't deter him and he even threatened to ruin her career. "I was standing there in my full black leather outfit-boots, pants, jacket". It made me overlook warning signs. In it, Thurman alleges that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein attacked her multiple times.

"It was such a bat to the head", she told the publication. 'He pushed me down. "And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me". He tried to expose himself.

"He did all kinds of unpleasant things", she told the New York Times.

"I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone, the way I did", she said. You are like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. I felt this searing pain and thought, 'Oh my God, I'm never going to walk again.' When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the auto and I was very upset. "My track. Not his track". Weinstein's assistants lured Thurman upstairs to Weinstein's room after convincing her that the incident was a misunderstanding and that the two have "so many projects together". She added that his assistants started calling her again to discuss new projects, and she made a decision to confront the now-disgraced film producer.

According to Thurman, she later confronted Weinstein about the assault at the hotel room and warned: "If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you,".

But when they had an argument over a script in his hotel room in Paris, the man showed up in a bathrobe.

Thurman claims that Tarantino asked her to perform a stunt in a auto she was told by engineers shouldn't be used.

"Her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue".

In Nov. 2017, Uma was asked about the Weinstein scandal by Access Hollywood, and answered with a measured, tense response. "I feel it's important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so..." When she confronted the director about endangering her, she says he was "very angry". She later posted to Instagram, saying to "stay tuned".

Uma then says, shortly thereafter, they were in London at the Savoy Hotel in Weinstein's hotel suite. He has apologized for causing "a lot of pain" with "the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past" but has denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex". She said that before the crash, she felt she had at least some say in her decisions and experiences, and didn't feel "disempowered". The vehicle crash took place four days before the end of production, after nine months of filming, while shooting the iconic scene from the movie in which The Bride drives a convertible and speaks directly to the camera about her plans to kill Bill.

Uma Thurman recently said she was waiting until her anger subsided to reveal her story. Tarantino promised the vehicle was fine, and convinced her to do the stunt herself. "Not that it matters now, with my permanently damaged neck and my screwed-up knees".
