Celebrities come in support of Uma Thurman

Celebrities come in support of Uma Thurman

A lot of attention has been given to the recent, sickening allegations that disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted Uma Thurman in the 1990s, but now people are turning their attention to the other allegations in Thurman's interview - this time involving director Quentin Tarantino.

In November a year ago, Thurman said she would talk about her time with Weinstein when she was "less angry", saying on Instagram that she was pleased the allegations against the producer were emerging slowly as he didn't "deserve a bullet". Thurman became the latest of more than 70 women who have accused 65-year-old Weinstein of sexual misconduct, including rape. The seat wasn't screwed down properly.

Brafman says Thurman's statements to the Times "are being carefully examined and investigated" before Weinstein decides whether any legal action against her would be appropriate.

Thurman eventually got her hands on the footage 15 years later - you can see it here.

As a result, when he allegedly attacked her in London, she said, "It was such a bat to the head".

But on another occasion shortly thereafter, she said, Weinstein physically assaulted her, pushing her down, attempting to expose himself and doing "all kinds of unpleasant things". He tried to shove himself on me.

She further hinted at her own experiences when she slammed Weinstein and his "wicked conspirators" in an Instagram post over Thanksgiving and suggested that she needed more time before opening up, telling observers to "stay tuned". "But he didn't actually put his back into it and force me". She says she left a hospital in a neck brace with damaged knees and a concussion. When she accused Tarantino of trying to kill her, he forcefully denied it, she added.

But he sexually attacked her after the release of Pulp Fiction. "Quentin used Harvey as the executive producer of 'Kill Bill, ' a movie that symbolizes female empowerment".

Tarantino's representatives did not immediately reply to a request for comment from HuffPost. "What really got me about the crash was that it was a cheap shot". I was never any kind of studio darling. "But at least I had some say, you know?"

She declined. "When they turned on me after the accident", she said, "I went from being a creative contributor and performer to being like a broken tool".

The Hollywood Reporter quoted Thurman as saying that she did not feel comfortable operating the vehicle and asked for a stunt person to do the scene, but Tarantino insisted she drive the auto, which resulted in a crash that she claims gave her a concussion and damaged knees. "The complicated feeling I have about Harvey is how bad I feel about all the women that were attacked after I was", she said.

"I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone, the way I did". "I stand as both a person who was subjected to it and a person who was then also part of the cloud cover, so that's a super weird split to have".

"According to Thurman, Tarantino then told her to "'hit 40 miles per hour or your hair won't blow the right way and I'll make you do it again'".
