Whether being honored for her skillful assassination skills as The Bride in Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2, or her presentation of the trap-spirited Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction, Uma Thurman’s legacy performances in cinema will continue to impact a multitude of generations to come.
Recently, Uma has spoken up against the Harvey Weinstein allegations of sexual harassment cases in Hollywood.
In an Instagram post, Thurman expressed her feelings about the case in the most cutting way possible.
Rather than speaking of her feelings alone, Uma threw Weinstein a jab during a Thanksgiving themed post, that’s left everyone guessing what she meant, and how radical of an assertion it really was.
H A P P Y T H A N K S G I V I N G 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. 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. I feel it’s important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so… Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – I’m glad it’s going slowly – you don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned Uma Thurman
“Happy Thanksgiving everyone!” she concluded her thankful caption, “Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – I’m glad it’s going slowly – you don’t deserve a bullet) -stay tuned Uma Thurman.”
“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,” wrote Thurman, referring to her Access Hollywood interview in October to which she had originally said that she was too angry to speak over what had happened.
Thurman’s original statement to Access Hollywood was heavy on it’s own. Her resentment towards Weinstein is very clear from her words.
“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. “So, I’ve been waiting to feel less angry, and when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”
Thurman’s ability to hold onto her silence is a powerful example for the other side of victims associated with the #metoo movement- the ones that are not ready to come out and discuss their experiences or pain.
But Uma isn’t alone. Hollywood victims and supporters of the viral moment have formed an alliance against the names exposed in the industry.
So … i feel like @ithurman_ understand my spirit in this quote. But when you watch her @accesshollywood clip. Oh god I just i want to hug her , you only that angry when you been hurt even worse . Oh heart https://t.co/p6fC67Qmey
