Uma Thurman wants Harvey Weinstein to face "due process" after he allegedly sexually harassed her on multiple occasions.
The 'Kill Bill' actress claimed earlier this month that the 65-year-old disgraced producer - who has been accused of sexual misconduct by a number of female employees - had attacked her on more than one occasion during the course of their working relationship, and she has now said she came forward with her story in the hopes that justice would be done.
During an appearance on 'Late Night with Seth Meyers', show host Seth congratulated Uma on her essay in the New York Times in which she detailed her claims against Weinstein, and she said: "Well, you've got to be a citizen and you can't leave people alone holding the bag of truth by themselves. There's no one I wish to get due process more than him."
The 47-year-old actress alleged in her article that the producer first made sexual advances towards her in a Parisian hotel room, before later attacking her again in London.
She wrote: "It was such a bat to the head. He pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things. But he didn't actually put his back into it and force me. You're like an animal wriggling away, like a lizard. I was doing anything I could to get the train back on the track. My track. Not his track."
Uma also told the New York Times that she later confronted Harvey in a hotel about the encounter, leading to an incident which she cannot fully remember.
Her friend, make-up artist Ilona Herman, recalled that Uma came downstairs after meeting Harvey in his room and was "totally out of control".
Ilona said: "She was very disheveled and so upset and had this blank look. Her eyes were crazy and she was totally out of control. I shovelled her into the taxi and we went home to my house. She was really shaking."
After her allegations were published, Weinstein's lawyers issued a statement in which they claimed he was considering legal action against Uma, insisting she had made "false accusations" against him.
They said: "Ben Brafman, Mr Weinstein's attorney said that Harvey is stunned and saddened by what he claims to be false accusations by Uma Thurman, someone he has worked closely with for more than two decades.
"Mr Weinstein acknowledges making an awkward pass at Ms. Thurman 25 years ago which he regrets and immediately apologised for.
"Why Ms. Thurman would wait 25 years to publicly discuss this incident and why according to Weinstein, she would embellish what really happened to include false accusations of attempted physical assault is a mystery to Weinstein and his attorneys.
"Ms Thurman's statements to the Times are being carefully examined and investigated before deciding whether any legal action against her would be appropriate."
