Actress Uma Thurman levels accusations against Harvey Weinstein

The actress, who starred in several blockbusters produced by Weinstein, gave a bombshell interview to The New York Times where she details a series of disturbing incidents, including an alleged assault in his London hotel room. Thurman recalled that he went from "aggressive to ashamed".

"He did all kinds of unpleasant things", she said. I was not a groundbreaker on a story I knew to be true. She remembers being told by Tarantino she had to drive the vehicle herself - no stunt person would be acceptable - and that she did it in spite of her fear that she was not equipped to drive it safely. "Mr Weinstein acknowledges making an awkward pass at Ms Thurman 25 years ago which he regrets and immediately apologized for", a spokesperson wrote in an email. Last Thanksgiving, she wished everyone a happy holiday on Instagram, but added a scathing caveat: "Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators - I'm glad it's going slowly - you don't deserve a bullet". "He tried to shove himself on me", she explained.

"When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the auto and I was very upset", she said. "Her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue", the statement read.

Tarantino hasn't responded to a request for comment.

She said the first time she had an unwanted experience with Weinstein occurred after the success of the movie, "Pulp Fiction". I felt this searing pain and thought, 'Oh my God, I'm never going to walk again.' When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the vehicle and I was very upset.

Weinstein had months ago denied allegations of nonconsensual sex and apologized for past behavior towards "colleagues."

"This is ridiculous, what are you doing?" She said he got "very flustered and mad and he jumped up and ran out".

Thurman, who had a friend with her at the hotel who backs up her memories, alleges that Weinstein threatened to "derail" her career, an allegation Weinstein denies.
