Harvey Weinstein scandal: Accuser Asia Argento urges Uma Thurman to speak

Not Released

In the video clip, Thurman is asked about inappropriate behavior in the workplace, and her response is measured but her voice is strained with emotion.

Some of the victims have, of course, not come forward with allegations-each, understandably, has their own reasons for doing so, whether it's out of fear of professional repercussions, non-disclosure agreements, or far more personal ones. "And when I'm ready, I'll say what I have to say", she concluded. "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". But she did promise that when she feels "less angry" she'll say what she has to say about Weinstein and the nuclear fallout since.

Pfeiffer said that for the first time, she's been having conversations about harassment with women she's known her "whole life", adding that there's a lot of reflection going on for both "men and women".

Asia Argento, who is one of Weinstein's accusers, commended Thurman on her words. Weinstein has now been accused of sexual assault and misconduct by over 80 women. Her breakout role was in Tarantino's beloved Pulp Fiction, which was distributed by Miramax, the company founded and run by Harvey Weinstein. As more and more women share their experiences being sexually harassed or abused by the producer, he is facing potential legal charges in New York, Los Angeles, and London.

Alex Smith, who represents the actress, said they tried and failed to serve Weinstein at his home in Westport, Conn., and believe he could also be in Phoenix, Ariz., or somewhere in Europe.

On Saturday, Argento tweeted a link to an October "Access Hollywood" video featuring Thurman and implored the actress to use her voice to speak out. "We need your strong voice, it truly is commanding".
