ACTRESS Uma Thurman’s powerful response to Hollywood’s wave of sexual assault scandals will give you serious chills.
UMA THURMAN’S response when asked about the wave of sexual misconduct allegations consuming Hollywood has caused a social media frenzy.
An Access Hollywood video from October 18 – which has suddenly gone viral today – shows Thurman being stopped by a reporter, who asks for her opinion on the situation. She answers with brutal honesty.
The video has been shared on Twitter and, at the time of writing, had already accumulated over 85,000 reactions and more than 30,000 retweets.
Speaking very carefully, Thurman seemed to agonise over every word.
“I don’t have a tidy sound bite for you,” she said. “Because, 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.”
She finished: “So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry and when I am ready, I will say what I have to say.”
Thurman didn’t yell, swear, rant or even speak for very long, but the sheer emotion underpinning her words hung heavily in the air.
Her response has resonated with thousands of people on social media.
