Uma Thurman has revealed that Harvey Weinstein tried to rape her.
The 47-year-old actress worked with Harvey on several movies, as he producted Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill.
Now Uma has said he tried to rape her 25 years ago in a London hotel.
She also accused director Quentin Tarantino of trying to “kill her” on Kill Bill, by “forcing” her to perform a dangerous stunt in an unsafe car which she ended up crashing, and now has permanent injuries.
“He pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me,” Uma told the New York Times.
“He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things.” she added.
“But he didn’t actually put his back into it and force me. You’re like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. I was doing anything I could to get the train on the track. My track.
The actress said a few days earlier he got her to follow him into a sauna.
“I was standing there in my full black leather outfit. 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.”
She returned to see Harvey after the London assault and told him: “If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family. I promise you.”
Uma alleges Weinstein threatened to derail her career if she ever talked about the incidents.
Harvey has already denied attacking the actress, saying they had “a flirtatious and fun working relationship”.
“Mr Weinstein acknowledges making an awkward pass 25 years ago at Ms Thurman in England after misreading her signals after a flirtatious exchange in Paris, for which he immediately apologised and deeply regrets,” his spokesperson said.
“However, her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue.”
“And this is the first time we have heard those details. There was no physical contact 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.”
More than 50 further complaints have been made in the USA alone against Harvey, and he has denied all claims.
