Uma Thurman says she's 'too angry' to respond to sexual harassment scandal

Uma Thurman says she's 'too angry' to respond to sexual harassment scandal

Women (and men!) are the real-life victims here, and that should make us all as angry as Uma Thurman in that video.

The actress told Access Hollywood this weekend that she finds it "commendable" that Hollywood women including Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow have spoken up about the entertainment industry's rampant mistreatment of women. In the past few weeks, director James Toback, director Steven Seagal, and House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey have all been implicated in the subsequent fallout.

Harvey Weinstein, who worked with Thurman in Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, and various other films, is now under investigation by police in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and the United Kingdom for sexual assault accusations.

Uma Thurman said that at the moment she is in a rage, and in connection with such a state can say a lot about what later regret.

"I don't have a tidy soundbite for you", she said.

The Italian actress paired the clip with a tweet that read: 'Dear #UmaThurman may peace be with you and your soul. It wasn't just her words (though, bravo to all of it) but her body language, which showed just how angry and repulsed she felt by simply saying a couple sentences. We need your strong voice, it truly is commanding'. Because the fury within has been building, likely from years of believing something happened to her alone, only to find out it happened to so many others, in so many similar ways, and others knew and didn't do anything.

Dozens of actresses have now come forward alleging sexual misconduct against the powerful Hollywood producer.
