Last year, Uma Thurman was among those who said she knew of Harvey Weinstein — but wouldn’t speak on it until she was “much less angry” than she was at the time. Now, in a scathing editorial with Maureen Dowd of the New York Times… the actress talks about being hurt by both Harvey Weinstein and Quentin Tarantino.
In the shocking interview, Thurman (decked out in typical A-list style; smoking tobacco, and sipping white wine before a fireplace) tells Dowd in their private space of how Quentin Tarantino and she had once gotten into a near friendship ending fight. That fight, perhaps, would see Tarantino go to the ends to “physically spit on her” and then force her to drive an unsafe car.
We’ve called Tarantino ‘s rep at least three times since reading this interview, and, were hung up on all three times.
The interesting part of the editorial, is, that Thurman confirms what most suspected. That, in the beginning of her career, she and Weinstein had known each other. Thurman a budding actress, Weinstein (a terribly powerful producer).. it was a match made in Hollywood heaven.
But, Weinstein had other plans. Thurman recounted to Dowd of one instance in a London hotel room, whereas, Weinstein “tried to force himself on me, but, failed to put his back into it”. Due to the graphic nature of the tid-bits from the New York Times interview we are obligated to direct you to that same interview at this point.
