Uma Thurman Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Sexual Assault

SYDNEY NSW- JANUARY 28 Fiji player Paula Dranisinukula gets hit in a hard tackle in their game against New Zealand at the World Rugby Sevens Series at Allianz Stadium in Sydney

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

She says Weinstein suddenly shoved himself on her and tried exposing himself. He tried to expose himself. She described Weinstein's actions in a New York Times interview published Saturday. "But he didn't actually put his back into it and force me", she told the newspaper. She says she screamed at him, saying he was "like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard, TMZ describes. 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". "My track. Not his track". 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".

"I just walked away stunned, like 'Okay, well there's my half-assed apology, '" said Thurman. Thurman also added her own story to the many allegations against Kill Bill's executive producer, Harvey Weinstein. All these lambs walked into the slaughter because they were convinced nobody rises to such a position who would do something illegal to you, but they do...

Reps for Thurman and Tarantino did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment. 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. "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. "However, her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue". "But at least I had some say, you know?"

Thurman also said there was another incident, which she did not discuss with New York Times except to say the encounter left the actress "shaking".

After hinting a few months ago that she would soon be willing to talk about her experiences of sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood, Uma Thurman is now opening up about the extent of that trauma.

The US actress, 47, claimed the disgraced film producer assaulted her in a London hotel room following the release of Weinstein-funded Pulp Fiction, and also recalled a second incident in which it is alleged he threatened to derail her career.

At the time, she said, she didn't feel threatened.

Miramax wouldn't give Thurman footage from the crash, initially, and the incident permanently fractured her creative relationship with Tarantino. "When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the auto and I was very upset". I thought he was being idiosyncratic like this was your kooky, eccentric uncle'.
