Thurman, who worked with the disgraced independent movie mogul on seven films, said their relationship quickly went from professional to toxic one day during the filming of the Quentin Tarantino-directed drama Pulp Fiction. According to the actress, he pushed her down and tried to expose himself to her. Thurman described her behavior as "like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard" as she did her best to get away from him.

Thurman expressed guilt for all the women who accused Weinstein of sexual abuse after, often, being led to his hotel room under the presumption that their meeting with him was about business.
Weinstein had invited Thurman to his room for a meeting about a script in a Paris hotel, where he was dressed in a bathrobe. But his assistants pressured her to meet him alone in his room. She had reason to believe the auto wasn't working properly, and argued with the director about how she was afraid to drive it alone. 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.
Weinstein issued a statement to the Timessaying that he "acknowledges making a pass at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals in Paris".
As for Tarantino, Thurman said he pressured her on the "Kill Bill" set into driving a vehicle that was unsafe. After Tarantino ordered her to drive a blue convertible that she was convinced was unsafe for a scene, Thurman crashed into a palm tree and sustained injuries.

This device could probably use a Full Active LCD display that will offer better technology over the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus display. Recent reports stated that when Apple reveals its new iPhones later this year, it will end production of the iPhone X.
Thurman stated that she knows her inability to share about the incidents up until this point has caused harm to Weinstein's later victims. She says she left a hospital in a neck brace with damaged knees and a concussion. "Kill Bill 2" is being shown at the festival out of competition.
Since the attack happened, Thurman said she could only tolerate being in supervised group settings with the 65-year-old, believing that she had "aged out of the window of his assault range, ' and received a 'half-assed apology" from him years later after confronting him once again. It made me overlook warning signs. "He used to spend hours talking to me about material and complimenting my mind and validating me", she says.
"He did all kinds of unpleasant things", she said. I was doing anything I could to try and get away'. He has apologized for causing "a lot of pain" with "the way I've behaved with colleagues in the past" but has denied "any allegations of non-consensual sex".
"Personally, it has taken me 47 years to stop calling people who are mean to you "in love" with you", Thurman tells Dowd. I thought he was being idiosyncratic like this was your kooky, eccentric uncle'.
