Uma Thurman Reveals Horrifying Kill Bill Ordeal With Tarantino And Weinstein

04 February, 2018, 00:46 | Author: Laverne Higgins

Thurman, who worked on seven films with Weinstein including Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill movies, had previously said she was too angry to comment over a "tidy soundbite" on sexual misconduct claims against the producer when approached by Access Hollywood.

USA director and jury president Quentin Tarantino and United States actress Uma Thurman arrive for the official projection of the film "Kill Bill 2", 16 May 2004 during the Cannes Film Festival in the French Riviera town.

In a new conversation with the New York Times, Thurman recalled the sexual misconduct she faced from Weinstein and an very bad accident on the set of Kill Bill.

Thinking she could confront Weinstein and clear the air about what occurred that evening, Thurman asked him to meet her at the hotel's bar for a conversation.

In the first "attack", which took place in Weinstein's suite at London's Savoy Hotel, "he pushed me down".

But on another occasion shortly thereafter, she said, Weinstein physically assaulted her, pushing her down, attempting to expose himself and doing "all kinds of unpleasant things".

In her recounting of the incident, Thurman says that the vehicle had been reconfigured from a manual transmission to an automatic, and that she had heard that it wasn't working very well. Thurman, who sustained "permanent" injuries to her neck and knees, says that Tarantino "wouldn't let me see the footage [of the crash] and he told me that was what they had all decided". A spokesperson for Weinstein told the Times that he denies ever threatening Thurman but that he acknowledges that he did make a pass at her in the Parisian hotel room, and that he immediately apologized for the London incident.

"Personally, it has taken me 47 years to stop calling people who are mean to you "in love" with you", she stated. You're like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. She was fully dressed and balked at joining him, and he ran out of the steam room, Thurman said.

"Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill me". I was doing anything I could to try and get away'. "And when I'm ready, I'll say what I have to say". "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".

She added, "I've been waiting to feel less angry". Thurman says she asked for a stunt person to do it instead (producers say they don't remember her objecting), but recounts that Tarantino came in her trailer and told her to drive it, that the auto and road were fine.

Thurman concludes by stressing how violating both Weinstein's actions and the crash nightmare felt. "I thought he was being super idiosyncratic, like this was your kooky, eccentric uncle", she recalled.
