#UmaThurman: “Harvey assaulted me, but that didn’t kill me”

Screenshot 2018-02-04 at 07.59.34.pngActress Uma Thurman, in long-awaited remarks, accused disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of forcing himself on her sexually years ago in a London hotel room according to a report published in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Thurman’s allegations against Weinstein, who has been accused of rape, assault and other sexual misconduct by scores of women, had been widely anticipated.

She said that the first “attack” — the word appears in quotes — happened later in London.

“He pushed me down,” she said. “He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things…you’re like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard.”

Thurman revealed that Weinstein, who was one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, had threatened to derail her career.

Thurman said: “Harvey assaulted me, but that didn’t kill me.”
