Uma Thurman has yet to weigh in on the mounting allegations of harassment by powerful men in Hollywood, but don’t rule her out of the discussion.
In an interview with Access Hollywood at the premiere of The Parisian Woman, the actress said she’s waiting for her anger to subside before lending her voice or sharing her own stories.
“I don’t have a tiny soundbite for you, because I am not a child and I have learned that when I have spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself,” she said. “So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry, and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”

As the number of women coming forward with harassment and assault allegations against men in power continues to grow, numerous prominent actresses – including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lupita Nyong’o and Ashley Judd – have revealed they were harassed or abused in their early careers. Thurman told the outlet their decision to speak out and turn the tide in Hollywood was “commendable.”
The actress has worked with Harvey Weinstein, whose accusers now total over 90, on multiple films including the Kill Bill franchise, Pulp Fiction and Beautiful Girls.
Weinstein is currently being investigated by LAPD, Beverly Hills PD, NYPD and London police for alleged acts of sexual assault. On Friday, NYPD announced it had an “actual case” with valid evidence against the disgraced producer.
