Uma Thurman Was Asked About Weinstein, and Her Response Was Chilling

Not Released

Not Released

It's been almost three weeks since Thurman's original comment and the actress - who's starring in "House of Cards" creator Beau Willimon's "The Parisian Woman" on Broadway - has yet to issue a follow-up statement.

"I don't have a tidy soundbite for you", she began, speaking slowly and seeming to choose her words carefully.

Uma Thurman feels it is commendable how women are coming forward with their own experiences. "Because I have learned-I am not a child, and I have learned that when I've spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself". But she did promise that when she feels "less angry" she'll say what she has to say about Weinstein and the nuclear fallout since. What's even worse is that some of these women are pretty heavy A-listers from Hollywood, including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Quentin Tarantino's movies "Pulp Fiction" and "Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2" were made by Weinstein's Miramax, and all starred Thurman.

The Harvey Weinstein scandal has led to a wave of reports about powerful men who have harassed or, at times, sexually assaulted women and men in the workplace.

"I knew enough to do more than I did", Tarantino admitted last month.

Dozens of actresses have now come forward alleging sexual misconduct against the powerful Hollywood producer. “There was more to it than just the normal rumours, the normal gossip.

As for Weinstein himself, his spokeswoman said: "Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein".
