And it has understandably gone viral

October was consumed by the Harvey Weinstein allegations, with the Hollywood producer accused of sexual harassment and in some cases assault by over 30 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.

There are however a few high profile actresses who have yet to speak out. One in particular was 47-year-old Uma Thurman, who has worked with him in seven of his films - everything from Pulp Fiction to the Kill Bill series.

So it’s understandable that a lot of people are interested to hear her opinion.

When walking the red carpet for the debut of her new play, The Parisian Woman, Uma explained that she will speak out but only when it’s the right time.

‘I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you,’ the actress explained to Access Hollywood. ‘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.’

She continued carefully: So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.’

We're ready to hear her statement whenever she's ready to tell us.
