Uma Thurman Has Been Waiting ‘to Feel Less Angry’ When It Comes to Discussing Sexual Harassment and Assault in Hollywood

By

Uma Thurman will eventually talk about her experiences with sexual assault and harassment in Hollywood, but it’s going to be on her terms and her terms only. In a recent interview with Access Hollywood — which occurred last month, but received particularly wide circulation on Twitter today due to journalist Yashar Ali — the actress responded to a question about women speaking out against inappropriate behavior in the workplace with a powerful, and even chilling, sentiment of her own. “I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you, because I’ve learned I’m not a child and I’ve learned that when I’ve spoken in anger I usually regret the way I express myself,” Thurman explained. “So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry. And when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.” While Thurman did not say if she would be naming names when she chooses to speak out, the question directed to her was specifically about Harvey Weinstein, who served as a producer for all of the Quentin Tarantino films she’s starred in.
