Uma Thurman, Harvey Weinstein, Pulp fiction, Kill Bill, Quentin Tarantino

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.

In a brand new exposé published by The New York Times on Saturday morning, the actress detailed a series of incidents with the Hollywood executive from which she emerged "very disheveled" and "upset".

Veteran actor Uma Thurman revealed that she was sexually abused and raped by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

John Travolta, Uma Thurman, Quentin Tarantino Lawrence Bender, Harvey Weinstein and Zanne Devine pose together ahead of the beach screening of Pulp Fiction at Miramax's 20th Anniversary celebration of the film at Majestic Beach in Cannes, southern France, during the 67th global film festival, Friday, May 23, 2014.

She said the film made Weinstein rich and respected and he introduced her to former president Barack Obama at a fund-raiser, saying she was the reason he had his house.

Thurman says that she later confronted Weinstein about the incident, but "her memory of the incident abruptly stops there". She did not give a date for the alleged encounter but said: 'It was such a bat to the head. She says he pushed her down and tried to shove himself on her and expose himself.

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

'But he didn't actually put his back into it and force me. She says she screamed at him, saying he was "like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard, TMZ describes. My track. Not his track".

"Mr. Weinstein acknowledges making a pass at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals in Paris", reads a statement sent to the New York Times.

These actions prompted a stepped-up, US-led campaign to toughen United Nations sanctions, which Pyongyang called an act of war. The United States did successfully intercept a medium-range ballistic missile off the coast of Hawaii in an August 2017 test.

Thurman's deteriorating relationship with Weinstein helped wreck her collaboration with Tarantino, she said. The incident ended in a crash, which left her with a "permanently damaged neck" and "screwed-up knees". "We had a fateful fight at Soho House in NY in 2004 and we were shouting at each other because he wouldn't let me see the footage and he told me that was what they had all decided".

She also added that a number of stunts in Kill Bill were done by Tarantino himself, specifically those involving degrading Thurman's character, like choking her and spitting on her.

At the time of writing this, reps for Tarantino have not responded to requests for comment. Miramax offered to show her the footage if she signed a document "releasing them of any consequences of my future pain and suffering", she says.

Scotland Yard has received two new complaints of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein from one woman.

The stunt resulted in a auto accident that left her seriously injured, with Thurman saying she still has a "permanently damaged neck" and "screwed-up knees".

'I knew him pretty well before he attacked me.

Back in November, Uma Thurman's honest response to a query about the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct allegations made the rounds on Twitter.

Thurman then alleges that Tarantino and Miramax wouldn't give her the footage of the accident for almost 15 years.

Her accounts come three months after telling reporters that she's been "waiting to feel less angry" to speak meaningfully about the "Me Too" movement against sexual harassment and assault. "I thought he was being super idiosyncratic, like this was your kooky, eccentric uncle", she recalled. "And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me".
