Uma Thurman recently admitted that she was too angry to comment publicly about “inappropriate behaviour” in the film industry.

And now the Kill Bill actress has revealed that she’s getting closer to having her say as she wished Happy Thanksgiving to everyone on Instagram – except Weinstein and his “wicked conspirators”.

“Happy Thanksgiving! 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,” Uma began her post.

“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…”

She continued: “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 concluded.

The post was attached with a still photograph of Thurman in Kill Bill: Volume 2, a film produced by Miramax – the company Weinstein founded.

At that moment, Thurman’s character described the “roaring rampage of revenge” her character Beatrice Kiddo went on against her tormentor Bill.

Earlier this month, Thurman was asked at the press event of her new Broadway play what she thought about women in the industry speaking out against “inappropriate behaviour” in the workplace.

Uma Thurman said: “I think it’s commendable.

“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. So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry. And when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”

Thurman’s longtime collaborator Quentin Tarantino previously admitted he was aware of the Harvey Weinstein allegations long before dozens of women came forward to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assaults and harassment.

The director, who has worked closely with the now disgraced producer for over two decades, apologised for not taking action sooner.

“I knew enough to do more than I did,” he told The New York Times – the paper that published the bombshell investigation against Weinstein.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard,” he added. “If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

The report stated that among the cases Tarantino was aware of, was actress Rose McGowan reaching a settlement with the producer.

Tarantino, who has worked with Weinstein on films ranging from 1992’s Reservoir Dogs to 2009’s Inglourious Basterds, called for Hollywood to stop tolerating despicable actions by men.

“We allowed it to exist because that’s the way it was,” he said.
