He pushed me down.

She says Weinstein suddenly shoved himself on her and tried exposing himself.

This has emerged hours after Uma Thurman detailed sexual assault at the hands of the Weinstein Company in an incredibly revealing article in the New York Times. The actress said the incident left her in a neck brace and put her professional relationship with Tarantino on shaky ground. She says she screamed at him, saying he was "like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard, TMZ describes".

Thurman first spoke about Weinstein, and the Me Too movement in general, back in November. "My track. Not his track".

Uma Thurman, 47, has come forward with her own accusations against Harvey Weinstein, 65. The actress clarified her feelings in Saturday's piece in the The Times, saying, "I used the word "anger" but I was more anxious about crying, to tell you the truth".

This combination of file photos created on February 3, 2018 shows U.S. actress and President of the Un Certain Regard jury Uma Thurman arriving on May 28, 2017 for the closing ceremony of the 70th edition of the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, southern France, and former Producer Harvey Weinstein at the premiere of "August: Osage County", December 16, 2013 at the Regal Cinemas at LA Live in Los Angeles, California. "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".

Thurman added that she has approached the police about Weinstein and procured the accident footage from Tarantino, which the Times reviewed. "Mr. Weinstein acknowledges making 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..."

Uma Thurman is speaking out about Harvey Weinstein. "I didn't feel threatened".

'I knew him pretty well before he attacked me.

Shortly after, she went back to his hotel again to confront him about it, bringing a friend with her. "And when I'm less angry, I'll say what I have to say".

Attorney Ben Brafman says Weinstein is "stunned and saddened" by the allegations, which came in a New York Times interview with columnist Maureen Dowd published Saturday. Later that month, she wished people a Happy Thanksgiving on Instagram, with a pointed qualifier. What ultimately ruined Thurman and Tarantino's working relationship, she said, was an accident on the set of Kill Bill during which the director pushed her to drive a auto that a teamster had told her wasn't fully safe.

Two weeks after the crash, after trying to see the auto and footage of the incident, she had her lawyer send a letter to Miramax, summarizing the event and reserving the right to sue.

Video accompanying the article online shows Thurman struggling to control the vehicle and crashing into a tree. "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".
