Uma Thurman accuses Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault

Uma Thurman says film producer Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted her after they worked together on the hit film "Pulp Fiction".

In the New York Times, the actress details the alleged incident in the 1990s at the Savoy Hotel in London.

"He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself," she says.

"He did all kinds of unpleasant things. But he didn't actually put his back into it and force me."

Weinstein's lawyer says the producer immediately apologised to Thurman for making an "awkward pass" at her at the time, but says her claims about an assault are untrue.

"Pulp Fiction" director Quentin Tarantino initially "dismissed" the incident, but later confronted Weinstein, Thurman says.

She is the latest of more than 70 women who have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, including rape.
