When the Weinstein spectacle broke, one of the first actresses to be asked about it was Ms Uma Thurman, the leggy blonde who was the earlier muse of Mr Quentin Tarantino.
Ms Thurman worked with the Weinstein company for no less than seven films, including star-studded movies like Pulp Fiction and the two Kill bill ones.
At the time, Ms Thurman was asked by Access Hollywood how she felt about Mr Harvey Weinstein being accused by so many of her colleagues. Ms Thurman, clearly holding back emotions, then stated: “I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you, 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 said.
“So, I’ve been waiting to feel less angry, and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”
Two weeks later, she posted a Thanksgiving message to all her fans with a picture of herself as ‘The Bride’ character of Kill Bill on her Instagram account, and included into her heartfelt thank you was a special line for Harvey Weinstein as well, stating: “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!”
Before finishing off with the menacing: “Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators - I’m glad it’s going slowly - you don’t deserve a bullet”.
Aauwch. That one went straight to the heart.
Ms Thurman must indeed be clearly angry with Mr Weinstein over what went on during the filming and production of those movies. Given that she finished off the post with ‘stay tuned’, we can only expect she will tell her full version of those stories soon.
