Uma Thurman Says Harvey Weinstein Assaulted Her Years Ago, He Denies It

Uma Thurman says Harvey Weinstein attacked her years ago, breaking her silence about her past experience with the producer, with whom she worked on many films.

The producer, who is in therapy in Arizona after being accused months ago of sexual misconduct by dozens of women, denies physically assaulting the Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill actress.

Last October, soon after a first wave of sexual assault and harassment allegations were made against Weinstein, Thurman was asked about him in an Access Hollywood interview and signaled that she would be ready to talk about him after she feels “less angry.” In November, she took to Instagram to wish her fans a happy Thanksgiving, adding, “Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators. I’m glad it’s going slowly. You don’t deserve a bullet.”

In an interview with the New York Times, published on Saturday, Thurman said Weinstein attacked her more than a decade ago at his suite at the Savoy Hotel in London.

“He pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things. But he didn’t actually put his back into it and force me,” she said. “You’re like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. I was doing anything I could to get the train back on the track. My track. Not his track.”
