Last month, a red carpet interview with Uma Thurman went viral after she declined to answer a question about the wave of sexual harassment claims sweeping Hollywood in light of allegations against Harvey Weinstein. She said the women who were speaking up were commendable, but she didn’t want to say much more.

With a fierce expression, she simply replied, “I don’t have a tidy sound bite 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. So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry. And when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”

On Thanksgiving, Thurman appeared to be ready to get the conversation started. On Instagram, she posted the requisite message of gratitude — with a twist. She said she was grateful for a number of things, including “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,” she wrote. “I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so . . . Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators — I’m glad it’s going slowly — you don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned.”

H A P P Y T H A N K S G I V I N G 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! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – I’m glad it’s going slowly – you don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned Uma Thurman

Clearly, she has more to say at some point.

Thurman starred in a number of movies that Weinstein produced, as both she and Weinstein were frequent collaborators with director Quentin Tarantino. Weinstein’s Miramax was behind “Pulp Fiction” and both volumes of “Kill Bill.” Thurman also starred in the Miramax movies “Beautiful Girls” and “A Month by the Lake.”

Tarantino has also spoken out against Weinstein — and taken himself to task — following the many public accusations against the former producer. Tarantino told the New York Times that he knew of the more serious allegations long before the stories broke, because he had dated one of Weinstein’s accusers, Mira Sorvino.

“I knew enough to do more than I did,” he said, and referenced other episodes with prominent actresses. “There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things.”

The director also knew about the settlement that Weinstein and another accuser, Rose McGowan, had reached. Still, he was shocked by how many people Weinstein allegedly victimized. With so many women coming forward with their stories, he suspects things may finally change in the industry.

“What was previously accepted is now untenable to anyone of a certain consciousness,” he said.
