'I’m glad it’s going slowly - you don’t deserve a bullet'
The past two months have been consumed by the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations, with the the Hollywood producer’s accusers of harassment and in some cases assault now amounting to over 50 women, with each day seeing new accusations emerge.
The alleged victims range from Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow to Cara Delevingne and Rose McGowan, with even those who haven’t experienced harassment speaking out to stand with their sisters.
Uma Thurman and Harvey Weinstein worked together on a whopping seven films, from Pulp Fiction to the Kill Bill series so when she kept her silence on the subject, people were eager to question why.
‘I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you,’ the actress explained to Access Hollywood earlier this month at the debut of her new play The Parisian Woman. ‘Because I have 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.’
Today it seems is that day, with Uma taking to social media to address Harvey Weinstein directly.
‘HAPPY THANKSGIVING,’ she posted to her Instagram followers. ‘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.’
She continued: ‘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.’
