Uma Thurman Just Opened Up About Harvey Weinstein

Paz Vega at the amfAR Gala during the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes France May 2017

John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Quentin Tarantino Lawrence Bender, Harvey Weinstein and Zanne Devine pose together ahead of the beach screening of Pulp Fiction at Miramax's 20th Anniversary celebration of the film at Majestic Beach in Cannes, southern France, during the 67th worldwide film festival, Friday, May 23, 2014.

The actress made good on that promise, over the course of two interviews in her NY apartment with Times columnist Maureen Dowd.

Thurman says it wasn't until she reminded Tarantino of the alleged incident at the Cannes Film Festival in 2001 that the Pulp Fiction director confronted Weinstein, and he apologized.

Thurman says Weinstein pushed her down and tried to shove himself on her and expose himself. Thurman says that prior to the meeting at the Paris hotel room, she was friendly with his wife at the time, Eve Chilton, and that she regarded him as her professional "champion" who would spend hours talking to her about material.

Uma Thurman is speaking out about Harvey Weinstein.

Thurman told Dowd about an incident in a Paris hotel in which Weinstein put a bathrobe on and told her to follow him into a steam room while the two were arguing about a script.

"I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone, the way I did", Thurman said.

You may already be aware that Uma Thurman previously hinted at the fact that she is one of the many women in Holywood sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein but now, the star has made a decision to tell all on what took place! Tarantino told her that she'd be driving the film's famous blue convertible down a sandy road herself, but Thurman believed the vehicle was unsafe and wanted a professional stunt person to do it. Tarantino assured her that the auto was safe, and Thurman agreed to do the driving herself.

Meanwhile, Asus is also reportedly gearing up to launch ZenFone 5 series smartphones, the successors of ZenFone 4 . Last week, a suspicious Asus smartphone with model number ASUS_X00QD a certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance.

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,".

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. "Quentin used Harvey as the executive producer of Kill Bill, a movie that symbolizes female empowerment". The auto veered off the road and crashed into a palm tree. She suffered a concussion, a neck injury and severe damage to her knees.

Attorney Ben Brafman says Weinstein is "stunned and saddened" by the allegations, which came in a New York Times interview with columnist Maureen Dowd published Saturday.

Thurman said in the article "that was a deathbox that I was in", the seat "wasn't screwed down properly" and the sand road "was not a straight road". Miramax offered to show her the footage if she signed a document "releasing them of any consequences of my future pain and suffering", she says.

"He did all kinds of unpleasant things", she told the New York Times. "But at least I had some say, you know?"

"Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill 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".

There was a crash, captured on footage that took her 15 years to get, she says. "The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me. And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me". "He was furious because I'd cost them a lot of time. I thought he was being super idiosyncratic, like this was your kooky, eccentric uncle", she recalled.
