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

Uma Thurman has worked with Harvey Weinstein on several films, from Pulp Fiction to the Kill Bill movies, but in the midst of all the bombs dropped by women who have come forward in the wake of Weinstein's sexual misconduct and rape allegations, the actress' name has been noticeably absent.

Thurman was collared on the red carpet as previews began for her new Broadway play "The Parisian Woman", penned by 'House of Cards' writer Beau Willimon.

When asked by Access Hollywood about her feelings on what's going on in Hollywood and inappropriate behaviour in the workplace, Thurman has things to say.

"Dear Uma Thurman", Argento wrote, "May peace be with you and your soul". "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". We need your strong voice, it truly is commanding'.

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. Meanwhile, Michelle Pfeiffer spoke with the BBC over the weekend, and while she says she's never worked with Weinstein, she notes she's had "some experiences" over her career.

Though the Boston native appeared calm, her frustration was palpable as she took a deep breath and told the NBC show, 'I don't have a tidy soundbite for you'. 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.
