On Thursday, the actress shared a still of herself as Beatrix Kiddo, a.k.a. The Bride, from “Kill Bill”, along with a text that read: “I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others. 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. I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so…Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!” Thurman wrote. “Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators. I’m glad it’s going slowly. You don’t deserve a bullet.”
Back in October, “Access Hollywod” asked Thurman how she felt about the flood of accusations against Weinstein. The actress, who shared credits with the producer in seven films, including “Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2” and “Pulp Fiction”, said “I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you, because I have learned, I am not a child. And I have learned that when I’ve spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself.” She added, “So, I’ve been waiting to feel less angry, and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”
Thurman has been frank in the past about sexual misconduct. Back in March 2016, the actress spoke out against a man who tried to ambush her with a kiss at a charity auction. Italian businessman Lapo Elkann won a $196,000 bid for a kiss from the star, but Thurman was not expecting the ambush she received when Elkann grabbed her face for a full blown make-out session.
“It is opportunism at its worst. She wasn’t complicit in it. Somewhere in his [mind] he must have thought it an appropriate way of behaving. It clearly wasn’t,” Thurman’s rep said in a statement. “It looks like she was happy to have it happen, but it was not consensual.”
Currently Thurman, who is making her Broadway debut in Beau Williamson’s The Parisian Woman, announced that she was leaving CAA after two years earlier this week.
Weinstein checked himself into an outpatient treatment facility in Arizona. A spokesperson for the producer said that all the encounters were consensual and that “there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.”
More than 50 women have accused the producer of sexual abuse and harassment. And more recently, Thurman’s collaborator on the films, director Quentin Tarantino, expressed his sorrow and regret at not having done more about the allegations against his producer.
