Uma Thurman: See Her INCREDIBLE Statement on Harvey Weinstein Scandal
For the past month or so, ever since a powerful piece was published in the New York Times, we've been talking an awful lot about Harvey Weinstein.
And that's because dozens and dozens of women have come forward to accuse Harvey of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and rape.
A-listers like Angelina Jolie and Gwyneth Paltrow have spoken out against Weinstein, and actresses like Rose McGowan and Paz de la Huerta have claimed that he raped them.
These are just a few examples of the women who have told their stories.
And now it's Uma Thurman's turn … well, almost.
In an amazing little clip that's gone viral this weekend, Uma spoke to Access Hollywood at a press event for a Broadway show she's starring in called The Parisian Woman.
The reporter asked her, as "a powerful woman in film," what she thought about "women speaking out about inappropriate behavior in the work place."
While she's being asked this, you can sort of see the rage build up — it's pretty intense, to say the least.
"I think it's commendable," Uma began, then she paused for a moment before telling the reporter that she didn't have "a tidy soundbite" for her.
"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.
"So I've been waiting to feel less angry. And when I'm ready, I'll say what I have to say."
It sounds like a pretty tame statement, seeing it in text, but you have to watch the way she delivers it — it's clear that she really is very, very angry, and that she definitely has a story of her own to tell.
It makes sense that her story would be about Weinstein, too — he's acted as producer on several films of hers, including Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill movies.
And it also makes sense that people really want to hear her story, because really, she just sounds furious even when alluding to it.
Actress Asia Argento, one of those many women who have accused Weinstein of sexual assault, tweeted this video of Uma, and she wrote "Dear #UmaThurman may peace be with you and your soul. We need your strong voice, it truly is commanding."
The rest of Twitter loved Uma's statement just as much.
"God once spoke through the burning bush," one person wrote. "This time it's through Uma Thurman."
Another speculated that "If you haven't seen this yet it seems Uma Thurman not only knows where the bodies are buried, but has neatly organized all the shovels."
"Ok let's be real that Uma Thurman video — she's getting a Hanzo sword made and is going to cut up the perverts isn't she," one person said.
And hey, if she did, would anyone be surprised?
