Uma Thurman breaks silence on Harvey Weinstein: ‘I’m glad it’s going slowly – You don’t deserve a bullet’
Uma Thurman has finally broken her silence over disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, admitting she’s “glad” the sexual assault scandal surrounding the producer is progressing slowly.
The 47-year-old actress starred in Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, both produced by Harvey’s former business Miramax, and said she was waiting for her anger to subside before she addressed the allegations made against the film executive, who has been accused of sexual harassment, sexual assault and even rape by women in the industry.
But Uma decided to reveal her feelings about the situation in a hard-hitting post on Instagram, as she wished her followers a happy Thanksgiving on Thursday.
Alongside a picture of herself in character as The Bride in Kill Bill, Uma wrote: “I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others. 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. I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so… Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – I’m glad it’s going slowly – You don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned Uma Thurman.”
The fact Uma used the #metoo hashtag suggests she may also have been a victim of Weinstein’s misconduct, while fans took the actress’ “stay tuned” remark as a promise that she’ll be going public with her tale in the near future.
Uma was previously approached for a comment about the Weinstein scandal back in October, when she told Access Hollywood: “I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you because I’ve 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. So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”
Uma’s Kill Bill co-star Daryl Hannah is among those accusing Weinstein of sexual misconduct, previously alleging that she had to barricade herself in her hotel room at one point to keep him out.
Weinstein is currently being investigated by police in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and London. He has strongly denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
