After weeks of allegations from dozens of accusers, one actress who worked closely with former Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein on multiple projects said she is still too angry to speak publicly on the topic.
Uma Thurman, who worked with Weinstein on films including “Pulp Fiction” and “Kill Bill,” was asked by an Access Hollywood reporter for a comment regarding the recent wave of sexual assault an harassment allegations against powerful men in Hollywood and other industries.
“I think it’s commendable,” she said of the public statements made in recent weeks against Weinstein by stars including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Thurman, however, said she has not yet reached the point that she can properly address the subject.
“I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you,” she said. “Because I have learned, I am not a child and I have learned that when I’ve spoken out in anger I usually regret the way I express myself.”
She explained she has been “waiting to feel less angry” before making any remarks.
“When I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say,” Thurman said.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, authorities in New York confirmed they are pursuing a “real case” against Weinstein in response to a rape allegation by actress Paz de la Huerta.
Mounting allegations against Weinstein led to similar complaints against other powerful men in Hollywood, including actor Kevin Spacey and directors James Toback and Brett Ratner, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The scandal soon expanded beyond Hollywood to include high-profile men in industries such as news media, as CNN reported, leading to the ousters of NPR editor Michael Oreskes and NBC’s Mark Halperin, among others, in recent weeks.
