Uma Thurman praised by fellow actresses after savaging Harvey Weinstein on Instagram

Numerous high-profile actresses have thrown support behind Uma Thurman after the Pulp Fiction star delivered an ominous message to disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein last week.

Uma Thurman, who appeared in seven Weinstein-produced films, slipped a direct threat to the Hollywood mogul in her Thanksgiving message on Instagram.

It now looks like she is ready to talk.

The 47-year-old’s post included a screenshot of herself from Kill Bill, in which she portrayed a sword-wielding bride on a bloodthirsty crusade for vengeance, accompanied by a heartfelt message:

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

It remains to be seen if the dig was also directed at her friend director Quentin Tarantino, who spearheaded all her projects at Miramax with the Weinsteins and recently conceded in an interview that he knew enough to do something, and didn’t.

Actresses Gwyneth Paltrow and Rose McGowan showed their support for Thurman by reacting to the post with a fist emoji.

Amber Tamblyn, Amanda de Cadenet and Selma Blair also took to social media to show solidarity with Thurman.

Thurman’s Instagram post comes after a New York Times investigation published in early October put the spotlight on Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct. Since the explosive report, scores of high-profile actresses have come forward, accusing Weinstein of sexual harassment.

Days after the scandal broke out, Access Hollywood approached Thurman for her opinion about the accusations surrounding her former boss, but the experienced star showed composure and refused to answer at the time, saving what she had to say for the appropriate moment.

“I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you, because I’ve learned — I’m not a child, and I’ve 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.”
