Uma Thurman says she was attacked by Harvey Weinstein multiple times.

The 47-year-old actress worked with the now-disgraced movie producer many times during her career and she alleged that he made his first sexual advance towards her in a Parisian hotel room, before attacking her in London.

She told the New York Times: ''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 told the publication 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 shoveled her into the taxi and we went home to my house. She was really shaking.''

Uma also accused Quentin Tarantino of failing to protect her from a car accident during the filming of 'Kill Bill', after he insisted she perform a stunt driving sequence she was uncomfortable with.

Speaking about crashing the car, she said: ''The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me. I felt this searing pain and thought, 'Oh my God, I'm never going to walk again'. When I came back from the hospital in a neck brace with my knees damaged and a large massive egg on my head and a concussion, I wanted to see the car and I was very upset. Quentin and I had an enormous fight, and I accused him of trying to kill me. And he was very angry at that, I guess understandably, because he didn't feel he had tried to kill me.''
