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 worldwide film festival, Friday, May 23, 2014.

The actress says Weinstein's incessant flattery, as well as the high position he held, made her miss what would otherwise be seen as key warning signs.

Thurman was able to maintain a working relationship with Weinstein, though she tended to avoid him, but she was coerced by a powerful man into a unsafe situation yet again on the set of Kill Bill.

The Times article says Thurman's memory of the Weinstein encounter stops there, but it quotes a friend who was waiting downstairs as saying Thurman emerged from an elevator disheveled and shaking.

Harvey Weinstein's team is considering possible legal action against Uma Thurman, according to a new statement obtained by EW.

The mother of three also detailed another occasion that occurred weeks earlier in a Paris hotel room where - during an argument over scripts - the producer donned a bathrobe and had the actress follow him to a steam room.

The woman, reportedly a 31-year-old mother, broke the law by exposing her hair in public, risking arrest and fines. Women are only allowed to show their face, hands and feet in public and are supposed to wear only modest colours.

"I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone, the way I did", Thurman said. She had reason to believe the vehicle wasn't working properly, and argued with the director about how she was afraid to drive it alone.

Later, she alleged, she arranged a meeting with Weinstein and warned him: "If you do what you did to me to other people you will lose your career, your reputation and your family, I promise you". "Mr. Weinstein acknowledges making an awkward pass at Ms. Thurman 25 years ago, which he regrets and immediately apologized for. Quentin (Tarantino) used Harvey as the executive producer of Kill Bill, a movie that symbolizes female empowerment", she said. She ended up wrecking and striking a tree. She then crashed in the vehicle, and badly injured her head, neck and knees.

"The next day to her house arrived a 26-inch-wide vulgar bunch of roses", Thurman says. In 2001, she was at Cannes and about to make Kill Bill. She says he pushed her down and tried to shove himself on her and expose himself.

"I approached Quentin in very serious terms and told him that he had let Uma down as a director and as a friend", Thurman's husband at the time, Ethan Hawke, told the Times.

"He did all kinds of unpleasant things", she said. And it was so hot and I said, "This is ridiculous, what are you doing?" Should she have fought back more? I felt this searing pain and thought, 'Oh my God, I'm never going to walk again.' When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the vehicle and I was very upset. "The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me". Not long afterward, Weinstein attempted to force himself on her again at the Savoy Hotel in London, Thurman said.

They added that he "later apologised". "When they turned on me after the accident", she told Dowd, "I went from being a creative contributor and performer to being like a broken tool".
