Uma Thurman says Harvey Weinstein assaulted her
The actress worked with Producer Weinstein in the iconic movie “The Pulp fiction”.
In an interview, she said, “He used to spend hours talking to me about the material and complimenting my mind and validating me. It possibly made me overlook warning signs. This was my champion. I was never any kind of studio darling. He had a chokehold on the type of films and directors that were right for me.”
According to the New York Times, the first incident happened at his suite in Savoy hotel in London where the producer tried to force himself on Thurman and molested her.
Later, she received a bouquet of yellow roses from the producer along with a note saying, “You have great instincts.”
In return, she offered to meet Weinstein in a hotel room to clear the matter. And that was when he assaulted her.
According to the interview, the producer apparently pressurised the actor to refrain from reveal about the incident. He threatened her saying that he would leak their pictures.
The production of the movie ‘Kill Bill’ again brought Thurman and Weinstein together.
Uma Thurman confided in their director Quentin Tarantino about the incident at Paris hotel, who further confronted Harvey and that ended their abusive work relationship.
This is not the first time that an Harvey Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct.He stands accused of sexual misconduct by more than 60 women.
