Uma Thurman Reveals Horrifying Kill Bill Ordeal With Tarantino And Weinstein

Thurman also leveled accusations against her Pulp Fiction director, Quentin Tarantino, stating he pressured her against her will to operate an unstable vehicle on the set of Kill Bill, resulting in an accident and permanent injury.

Thurman says when she expressed fear about driving a possibly faulty vehicle in Tarantino's "Kill Bill: Vol. 1" he insisted. According to the actress, he pushed her down and tried to expose himself to her. Thurman described her behavior as "like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard" as she did her best to get away from him.

A rep for Weinstein did not immediately respond to TheWrap's request for comment.

Her friend Ilona Herman, who accompanied her, said that when Thurman returned she was "shaking" and said Weinstein had 'threatened to derail her career'.

Thurman concludes by stressing how violating both Weinstein's actions and the crash nightmare felt.

Weinstein had invited Thurman to his room for a meeting about a script in a Paris hotel, where he was dressed in a bathrobe.

The actress arranged a meeting with the director and took a friend along to meet Weinstein in the Savoy bar, where she says his assistants tried to pressure her into meeting him upstairs, in his room.

You may already be aware that Uma Thurman previously hinted at the fact that she is one of the many women in Holywood sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein but now, the star has made a decision to tell all on what took place!

Weinstein issued a statement to the Times saying that he "acknowledges making a pass at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals in Paris".

Thurman said that the many sexual-misconduct accusations about Weinstein stemming from October stories in the times and The New Yorker compelled her to speak out, as well as an incident on the set of Kill Bill. She ended up wrecking and striking a tree. She said that after the crash she left a hospital in a neck brace with damaged knees and a concussion.

However, she 'did not feel threatened. She also describes how Tarantino inserted himself into the filming of several violent scenes in Kill Bill to personally spit on her and choke her. In 2001, she was at Cannes and about to make Kill Bill. "And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me". I thought he was being super idiosyncratic, like this was your kooky, eccentric uncle ... then I followed him through a door and it was a steam room.

"He did all kinds of unpleasant things", she told the New York Times. I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn't tell by the look on my face. She recalls, "The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me..." "He used to spend hours talking to me about material and complimenting my mind and validating me", she says.

Thurman first spoke about Weinstein, and the Me Too movement in general, back in November. "He was furious because I'd cost them a lot of time". "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 that we need to evolve out of".
