"It was such a bat to the head", she told the publication.

In the Times article, Thurman, 47, said Weinstein pushed her down when she met him in his suite at London's Savoy Hotel. "And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me".

"He did all kinds of unpleasant things", she said.

In an interview, she said, "He used to spend hours talking to me about the material and complimenting my mind and validating me". She says she screamed at him, saying he was "like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard, TMZ describes. And it was so hot and I said, 'This is ridiculous, what are you doing?' And he was getting very flustered and mad and he jumped up and ran out". "My track. Not his track".

The news follows Uma Thurman's account of being sexually assaulted. Thurman said she warned Weinstein that if he did that to other actresses his career would be over but she couldn't remember anything else from that conversation.

The clip, in which Thurman's slow, ultra-controlled demeanor made her sound like she was fighting to rein in her rage, went viral. A friend who sat in the lobby of the Savoy Hotel waiting for her, makeup artist Ilona Herman, said that when she returned "her eyes were insane and she was totally out of control".

It's not clear whether Thurman has made a formal complaint to the United Kingdom police and the New York Times article does not state what year the assault took place in, although she suggested it took place after 1994's Pulp Fiction.

A spokesperson for Weinstein also denied ever threatening Uma's job prospects, and said that up until the Paris steam room incident, they had "a flirtatious and fun working relationship". "Mr. Weinstein acknowledges making a pass at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals in Paris", the rep told the Times, adding that Weinstein "immediately apologized" to Thurman after the encounter.

Uma didn't feel comfortable driving the auto and says a teamster led her to believe the vehicle might not be working well. The vehicle crash took place four days before the end of production, after nine months of filming, while shooting the iconic scene from the movie in which The Bride drives a convertible and speaks directly to the camera about her plans to kill Bill. In 2015, The Weinstein Company distributed Burnt, in which Thurman also starred, domestically.

As well as starring in Pulp Fiction by director Quentin Tarantino, Thurman was the lead actor in his two-film Kill Bill action series, which were produced by Weinstein's Miramax studio and earned more than US$330 million (RM1.2 billion) at global box offices.

"I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn't tell by the look on my face", Thurman wrote on Instagram. There's footage of the crash, but Thurman had been unable to get a copy of it, even through legal means, until the Miramax empire started crumbling down this past October. Thurman did not sign. However, they continued to work together-Thurman thought she had "aged out of the window of his assault range".
