Uma Thurman took to Instagram on Thanksgiving to post a cryptic
#MeToo message and called out Harvey Weinstein in the process.
“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,” the
actress said in her message.
“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 continued an
apparent reference to her response to a question about sexual
misconduct in a “Access Hollywood”
interview two weeks ago.
While she didn’t make any specific accusations, she wished a
happy Thanksgiving to everyone except disgraced indie mogul
Harvey Weintstein and what she called his “wicked
conspirators.” She said she’s glad his downfall is “going
“You don’t deserve a bullet,” she added, before hinting at
“Stay tuned,” concluded the actress, who dropped CAA as her
agency earlier this week.
Thurman has worked several times with Weinstein, including on
her Oscar-nominated breakout role in Quentin Tarantino’s 1994
film “Pulp Fiction” as well as two “Kill Bill” movies.
Thurman also starred in “Beautiful Girls” and “Burnt,” two
films that were distributed by Weinstein-owned companies.
It’s not the first time that Thurman has hinted at personal
conflict with Weinstein since he was fired by The Weinstein
Company in the wake of multiple accusations of sexual
harassment and assault. (He has denied engaging in
nonconsensual sex but is under investigation by authorities in
New York, L.A. and London.)
“I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you, because — I have
learned — I am not a child and I have learned that… when I’ve
spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself,”
she said, carefully choosing her words in the “Access
“So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry… and when I’m ready,
I’ll say what I have to say.”
