Uma Thurman Breaks Her Silence About Harvey Weinstein

"I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone, the way I did", she said.

She said in another confrontation, Weinstein tried to expose himself at her while at his suite at the Savoy Hotel in London.

"We have pulled a number of images that demonstrate the strong relationship Mr Weinstein and Ms Thurman had had over the years and we wish the New York Times would have published them", the statement reads. "But he didn't actually put his back into it and force me", she said of the incident, for which she didn't specify a date. You are like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. And it was so hot and I said, 'This is ridiculous, what are you doing?' "My track. Not his track".

Back in November, Uma Thurman called the women speaking out against Harvey Weinstein "commendable", and said that she was "waiting to feel less angry" before sharing her own story. She then walked the Times through how she questioned how safe it was for her to drive the auto Tarantino wanted her to in a particular scene, one that had her speeding down a winding, sandy road, and that he insisted she do so in spite of her discomfort.

Weinstein, the executive producer of award-winning movies including Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's "Good Will Hunting" and Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction", acknowledged making an "awkward pass" at Thurman but denied physical assault and emphasized a longstanding professional relationship with her. "And 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".

The 47-year-old alleges that things took a sinister turn when the director told her to follow him down a corridor in a Paris hotel - leading her to a steam room. While filming Kill Bill, the star of the film was asked to drive the convertible from the famous scene where she kills Bill.

She had objected to getting in the "deathbox" auto, she said, but Tarantino insisted. She claims Thurman revealed in the cab ride back that Weinstein threatened to derail her career.

In footage posted by the Times, the actress is seen speeding down an unpaved road before crashing into a tree.

But Thurman also described a harrowing onset episode on location in Mexico in which Tarantino ignored her expressed fears of driving a vehicle that she had been warned might be faulty. In October, Tarantino admitted in an interview that he knew about Weinstein's misconduct: "I knew enough to do more than I did, there was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip".

Thurman also claims to have told Quentin Tarantino of the incident, which led the filmmaker to confront Weinstein, with Weinstein then apologising to the actress. Check out the details of her terrifying experience working with the disgraced director. "I didn't feel threatened". "It's a straight piece of road.'" He persuaded her to do it, and instructed: "'Hit 40 miles per hour or your hair won't blow the right way and I'll make you do it again.' But that was a deathbox that I was in. The seat wasn't screwed down properly. She said that after the crash she left a hospital in a neck brace with damaged knees and a concussion. It took a long time because I think that as little girls we are conditioned to believe that cruelty and love somehow have a connection, and that is like the sort of era we need to evolve out of.
