Uma Thurman Is Coming for Harvey Weinstein…Kill Bill-Style

Screengrab of an Uma Thurman interview with Access Hollywood

Remember that time when Uma Thurman was asked about Harvey Weinstein while doing press for The Parisian Woman, and she, through barely-restrained rage declined comment until she was feeling “less angry?” Well, it seems that she’s slightly less angry now. But make no mistake. That still means she’s furious.

Thurman took to Instagram yesterday, both to express gratitude at Thanksgiving, and to continue her train of thought from that Parisian Woman interview. In doing so, she evoked the powerful image of herself as Beatrix Kiddo, A.K.A. “The Bride” in Kill Bill.

She says that she’s thankful for her life and those she loves, as well as for “those who have the courage to stand up for others.” She uses that to segue into the meat of her statement:

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

“Stay tuned!” That implies that there’s more coming, and the fact that she names Harvey and says #metoo leads me to believe that we might have a hell of a story coming our way. Though, of course, her #metoo could be completely unrelated. She is a woman in the world, after all. It could have happened to her anywhere. Regardless of what we’re “staying tuned” for, I’m inspired by the way that Thurman is managing to be so graceful, even in her rage. She’s being measured and calculated, because she knows that’s a lot smarter than flying off the handle.

I’m ready to go into battle whenever you are, Black Mamba. Just say the word.
