Just like her character in Kill Bill, Uma Thurman prefers to bide her time and strike her enemies at the most perfect, most devastating moment. On Thursday, she did just that with a savage Thanksgiving post on Instagram in which she called out Harvey Weinstein and his “wicked conspirators.”
Next to a picture of her Kill Bill character looking, uh, disgruntled, she wrote:
Ooooooooh. This was definitely worth waiting a month for. (You may recall that Thurman teased her eventual response to Weinstein in an October interview with “Access Hollywood.”) Seriously, though, this is perfect. Thurman’s message of blind disgust is expertly couched in a love letter about gratefulness, joy, and camaraderie. We feel so warm and fuzzy reading it — right up to when she wishes Weinstein a slow and painful death. It’s essentially her version of “…and none for Gretchen Weiners.”
When The New York Times asked Thurman earlier this month if she had been abused, she said, “I’ll discuss it when I want to discuss it.” She also ripped Hollywood as a place of “contempt and dismissiveness toward women of all kinds.” Perhaps that’s why she’s moving to Broadway this month with “The Parisian Woman.”
Thurman starred in several Weinstein-produced films, her acclaimed collaborations with writer/director Quentin Tarantino among them.
The blogosphere is already swirling with rumors as to the identities of the “wicked conspirators.” Tarantino and Harvey Weinstein’s brother, Bob are among those being mentioned.
For now, we’ll just have to wait and see if Thurman kills Weinstein in a Japanese garden, in his kitchen in front of his innocent daughter, or with the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique.
