Uma Thurman Breaks Her Silence On Weinstein, And Tarantino
The allegations' revelation comes on the heels of a revealing article in the New York Times describing an alleged assault by Weinstein on Uma Thurman.
ActressUma Thurman has released shocking footage of a auto crash she suffered on the set of Kill Bill, and alleges that director Quentin Tarantino pressured her into the unsafe stunt.
A spokesperson for Weinstein told the Times that the producer never threatened Thurman and said that the night of the steam room incident, he made "a pass" at her after "misreading her signals".
"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.
This news follows Uma Thuram's detailed account in The New York Times of how Weinstein "did all kinds of unpleasant things" to her. The actress said the incident left her in a neck brace and put her professional relationship with Tarantino on shaky ground. You're like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard.
Thurman first spoke about Weinstein, and the Me Too movement in general, back in November. "My track. Not his track". "There was no physical contact during Mr. Weinstein's awkward pass and Mr. Weinstein is saddened and puzzled as to "why" Ms. Thurman, someone he considers a colleague and a friend, waited 25 years to make these allegations public, noting that he and Ms. Thurman have shared a very close and mutually beneficial working relationship where they have made several very successful film projects together", the statement said.
"I am not a child and I have learned that when I have spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself, so I have been waiting to feel less angry, and when I'm ready I will say what I have to say", she said. They also stated that "her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue". The actress clarified her feelings in Saturday's piece in the The Times, saying, "I used the word "anger" but I was more anxious about crying, to tell you the truth".
"Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill me", Thurman said of a Pulp Fiction stunt that saw her slam a auto into a tree, landing her in the hospital. "All these lambs walked into slaughter because they were convinced nobody rises to such a position who would do something illegal to you, but they do".
Shortly after, she went back to his hotel again to confront him about it, bringing a friend with her.
The entire interview - which also includes footage of the Kill Bill crash provided by Thurman - is worth a read, available here.
She had objected to getting in the "deathbox" vehicle, she said, but Tarantino insisted.
A rep for Weinstein did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment. However, the authorities have stated that no arrests have been made, and Weinstein has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
