Uma Thurman has broken her silence over Harvey Weinstein and her own attack at the hands of the powerful producer. In October, Thurman was asked about the then-recent revelations about Weinstein on the red carpet for her Broadway play, The Parisian Woman.

At the time, she said she was waiting until she was less angry to comment on the scandal. “I used the word ‘anger’ but I was more worried about crying, to tell you the truth,” she explained in a new interview with The New York Times.

Later in the same interview, Thurman details how Weinstein attacked her in his suite at the savoy hotel in London. “He pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things. But he didn’t actually put his back into it and force me.”

Thurman describes her working relationship with Weinstein as having permanently changed after that. She states that Weinstein apologised after the incident in London, and that Quentin Tarantino, who directed her in the Weinstein-produced Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill movies, was aware of the attack.
