UK Police Receive More Harvey Weinstein Sexual Assault Allegations

04 February 2018

Thurman opened up in an in-depth interview with the New York Times, in which she also became the latest in a long list of actresses to accuse producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment.

Thurman also had criticism for film direction Quentin Tarantino, who she said pressured her to film a risky scene in "Kill Bill" which has left her with permanent injuries.

Thurman says Weinstein pushed her down and tried to shove himself on her and expose himself.

"He immediately apologized." In response to her claims, Weinstein's team also released photos of him with Uma that they said "demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman had had over the years". Since the attacks, Thurman says could tolerate being in supervised group settings with Weinstein, believing she had "aged out of the window of his assault range". A Weinstein spokesperson confirmed to the Times that he had done this.

Following the sale, the vice president now directly owns 187,663 shares in the company, valued at approximately $15,645,464.31. Analysts are projecting Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE: XOM ) to grow at an accelerated rate over the next five years.

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. "When I'm ready", she told an Access Hollywood reporter, "I'll say what I have to say". Thurman details how she remained firm with Weinstein but her memory of the incident fades in the story. She reluctantly agreed, and allegedly told Weinstein the following when she walked in: "If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you".

In response to the report, Weinstein - who is now undergoing therapy at a clinic in Arizona - admits that he made an "awkward pass" at Thurman, but denied physical contact, and claims to be "saddened and puzzled" about her accusations. The incident ended in a crash, which left her with a "permanently damaged neck" and "screwed-up knees". "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". She recalled that while being led down a hotel hallway by Weinstein, whom she initially had a pleasant working relationship with, during a meeting, "I didn't feel threatened.I thought he was being super idiosyncratic, like this was your kooky, eccentric uncle". "She was very disheveled and so upset and had this blank look", Herman said. Then at Thanksgiving, she posted a somewhat cryptic note to Instagram, a still of herself driving in Kill Bill with a message about #MeToo and a warning to Weinstein.

'I knew him pretty well before he attacked me. He did all kinds of unpleasant things. And it was so hot and I said, 'This is ridiculous, what are you doing?' "The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me". "What really got me about the crash was that it was a cheap shot". "He used to spend hours talking to me about material and complimenting my mind and validating me", she says. Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill me.

She added, "I've been waiting to feel less angry". The actress recalled a time when she was 16 and an actor almost 20 years her senior coerced her after heading to his home after meeting at a club.
