"I am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage", she added later, disclosing that Tarantino was the one responsible for obtaining the video footage for her, fully knowing that it could potentially "cause him personal harm".

Instead of placing the blame on Tarintino, Thurman added that she holds producers Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and "the notorious Harvey Weinstein exclusively responsible".

Actress Uma Thurman has broken her silence regarding a previous experience with disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, saying that she was assaulted by Weinstein years ago. Thurman also recounts several odd abuses of power on behalf of her Kill Bill director, Quentin Tarantino.

Thurman also claims that while filming Kill Bill, Tarantino stepped in himself to choke Thurman with a chain in a scene performed by teenage girl Gogo, as well as the spitting in her face in the scene edited to look like actor Michael Madsen had done it. " The actress called the circumstances surrounding the accident "negligent to the point of criminality".

In an Instagram post earlier on Monday, Thurman said Tarantino did the "right thing" by taking responsibility and sharing the footage.

Weinstein's representative also sent photos that the spokesperson said "demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman had had over the years".

Uma Thurman initially thought Harvey Weinstein "was my champion".

Thurman, as you can see, reserves her criticism for producers Harvey Weinstein, Lawrence Bender and E Bennett Walsh, neither of whom have commented on the incident, or Thurman's allegations.

The U.S. administration is itself saying that it's not an honest broker in the peace process. Nevertheless, Erekat insisted that the Palestinians were not looking for a fight with the US.


Apatow also tweeted that Tarantino ignored "Kill Bill: Volume 2" star Daryl Hannah's allegations of harassment at the hands of Weinstein.

The photographs released by Baird depict Weinstein in party surroundings with Thurman and others.

It was hard for Thurman to work after the accident, the actress told the Times: "I went from being a creative contributor and performer to being like a broken tool. She wanted clarity on what happened in that auto crash, after all these years", Tarantino said. Thurman told The New York Times that a crewmember tipped her off that the vehicle wasn't functioning properly and the car's seat was not screwed in correctly. She says she left a hospital in a neck brace with damaged knees and a concussion.

Tarantino did not respond to the New York Times' requests for comments.

Though the article doesn't make clear how the London hotel room encounter ended, Thurman said: "Harvey assaulted me, but that didn't kill me".

Tarantino later shared his recollection of the day in question in his Deadline interview, explaining, "I start hearing from the production manager, Bennett Walsh, that Uma is trepidatious about doing the driving shot".

Later, she alleged, she arranged a meeting with Weinstein and warned him: "If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you".
