Adjust Comment Print

The Times article says Thurman's memory of the Weinstein encounter stops there, but it quotes a friend who was waiting downstairs as saying Thurman emerged from an elevator disheveled and shaking.

Thurman said that the many sexual-misconduct accusations about Weinstein stemming from October stories in the times and The New Yorker compelled her to speak out, as well as an incident on the set of Kill Bill.

Thurman told Dowd about an incident in a Paris hotel in which Weinstein put a bathrobe on and told her to follow him into a steam room while the two were arguing about a script. He said: 'I promise you the auto is fine.

"I used the word "anger" but I was more anxious about crying, to tell you the truth", she explained in a new interview with the New York Times.

In the interview, she describes how the first "attack" occurred in Weinstein's suite at the Savoy Hotel in London.

She described herself "like an animal wriggling away" trying to get away from him.

Following the first alleged assault, she said Weinstein sent her flowers, with a note telling her she had "great instincts".

Dishing on the truth behind her decision to wait until she was less "angry", Thurman added, "I used the word "anger" but I was more anxious about crying, to tell you the truth..."

The video has gone viral this week, garnering 5.3 million views, 101,000 shares and 25,000 likes on Facebook as of February 2. Lockler told Pensacola News Journal in a phone interview Wednesday that she has personally witnessed some of the carelessness.

They have had a fractured relationship ever since, but they did work together again.

The statement acknowledges Weinstein made "an awkward pass 25 years ago at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals, after a flirtatious exchange in Paris, for which he immediately apologized and deeply regrets".

Weinstein denied doing so and called Thurman "a brilliant actress". She then walked the Times through how she questioned how safe it was for her to drive the auto Tarantino wanted her to in a particular scene, one that had her speeding down a winding, sandy road, and that he insisted she do so in spite of her discomfort.

"Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators - I'm glad it's going slowly - You don't deserve a bullet)". Thurman also added her own story to the many allegations against Kill Bill's executive producer, Harvey Weinstein. "And all these lambs walked into slaughter because they were convinced nobody rises to such a position who would do something illegal to you, but they do".

In the candid New York Times interview, the actress also revealed her long-running feud with director Quentin Tarantino, saying he made her drive a stunt auto against her will. "So what you really saw was a person buying time".

"I just walked away stunned, like 'Okay, well there's my half-assed apology, '" said Thurman. Remember the Thanksgiving Instagram pic of her as the bride? "Kill Bill 2" is being shown at the festival out of competition.

Years later, it finally happened! The auto veered off the road and crashed into a palm tree. The incident ended in a crash, which left her with a "permanently damaged neck" and "screwed-up knees".

'I knew him pretty well before he attacked me. "I tried to say no, I cried, I did everything I could do". She reluctantly went, and told him: 'If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you'. "It took a long time because I think that as little girls we are conditioned to believe that cruelty and love somehow have a connection, and that is like the sort of era that we need to evolve out of".
