The New York Times has published a lengthy report about actress Uma Thurman, who details several sexual assaults from disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, as well as the unsupportive and physically endangering behavior of “Kill Bill” director Quentin Tarantino.

In the exposé, Thurman says that she got to know Weinstein and his wife after starring in Tarantino’s 1994 film, “Pulp Fiction.” “He used to spend hours talking to me about material and complimenting my mind and validating me,” she says. “It possibly made me overlook warning signs. This was my champion.”

Afterwards, she says Weinstein made an unwanted advance in a hotel room during an argument, and later “pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things.”

Thurman says that she later confronted Weinstein about the incident, but “her memory of the incident abruptly stops there.” One of her friends recalled that when Thurman returned, she was “disheveled and so upset and had this blank look,” and said that Weinstein threatened to end her career.

In response to the report, Weinstein — who is currently undergoing therapy at a clinic in Arizona — admits that he made an “awkward pass” at Thurman, but denied physical contact, and claims to be “saddened and puzzled” about her accusations.

Through a representative, he questioned why she — like numerous other women who have accused the powerful media mogul of assault — waited so long to come forward, and released a number of images of himself and Thurman at public events that he believes “demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman have had over the years.”
