Harvey Weinstein is said to be considering legal action after Uma Thurman claimed he attacked her in a London hotel room 25 years ago. 

Speaking to The New York Times, the actress claimed the disgraced producer assaulted her following the release of the Weinstein-funded Pulp Fiction, and recalled another incident in which he threatened to ruin her career. 

He denies any wrongdoing and says he is "stunned and saddened" by the allegations.

Uma told the paper how Weinstein tried to shove himself on top of her and attempted to expose himself. 

“He did all kinds of unpleasant things,” she said. “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.”

She went on to say how she told Pulp Fiction director, Quentin Tarantino, about the alleged incident and he confronted the producer at Cannes Film Festival in 2001. 

Hours later, Weinstein apologised, though Uma was not convinced. 

“I just walked away stunned, like ‘ok, well there’s my half-assed apology’.”

A spokesperson for Weinstein says he "misread" Uma's signals. 

“Mr. Weinstein acknowledges making a pass at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals in Paris. He immediately apologised.”

Criminal investigations are underway on both sides of the Atlantic following a number of sexual assault allegations against the former Hollywood big shot.

Una Thurman has been travelling around Ireland and none of us even noticed.

Yep, we didn't figure it out until the actress herself posted a picture on Instagram.

In the snap, Uma is cuddling up with her kids at George's Street restaurant Taste at Rustic.

And if you saw the launch of the restaurant's new menu during the week, then you'll know that she certainly enjoyed some good food.

The Pulp Fiction star captioned the photo: "Dublin Birthday for Maya, the best ever! Master chef at Taste at Rustic."

Maya is Uma's daughter which she had with her ex-husband Ethan Hawke. 

And she is certainly following her in mother's footsteps as she is currently in Ireland filming a new adaptation of Little Women, which will star Jessica Fletcher, Michael Gambon and Emily Watson.

Maya will play Jo in the flick, while Willa Fitzgerald will play Meg, Annes Elwy will play Beth and Kathryn Newton will take on the role of Amy.

Keep us posted if you see the superstar anywhere else!

As we all know, nail trends come and go; in summer and spring pastel nails are always the way to go, and in autumn and winter it's back to our usual dark hues. 

But there's one colour that has been missing for a while now. Madonna wore the shade in her Take A Bow video and Uma Thurman totally rocked the polish in Pulp Fiction.

Sarah Michelle Gellar even gave the polish a shout-out in the first ever episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Yep, Vamp (the shade that even boasts its own Wikipedia page), is back on the market. Chanel has rolled out a holiday beauty collection to celebrate the shade's 20th anniversary and finally, it's available to buy again. 

Chanel Vamp Attitude is the limited collection that would make any '90s girl's dream come true.

The collection comes complete with Vamp-inspired eye-shadow palettes, lipsticks, glosses, polishes and of course, the beloved Vamp itself.

Attending a glitzy fashion event last night, she arguably looked like any other tall, beautiful, wealthy teenager who has the privilege of being on the guest-list.

But 16-year-old Maya Thurman-Hawke is certainly not just another pretty face. For one, she is the daughter of Hollywood royalty Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke.

Secondly, she gets to wear spectacular dresses that aren't even released yet.

Clad in a stunning Zac Posen tulle gown from the designer’s 2016 resort collection, she was attending the CFDA Awards in New York’s Lincoln Centre – an annual event which marks excellence in American fashion – accompanied by the designer himself.

Zac had earlier in the evening taken to Instagram to share a video clip of 26-year-old Canadian model Coco Rocha recently shooting in the same item.

And just as Coco can be seen in the video moving from side-to-side to allow the full-effect of the dress to be appreciated, Maya gladly obliged last night, twirling for the waiting cameras.

The capped-sleeved number features a black fitted bodice and full petticoat which is covered with a transparent layer of lightly-beaded material adorned with a colourful floral motif.

Her parents, actors Uma and Ethan, married in 1998 two years after they met on the set of Gattaca.

As well as Maya, they have a 13-year-old son, Levon. The couple separated in 2003 amid allegations of Ethan’s infidelity and their divorce was finalised in August 2005.

He went on to marry Maya and Levon’s nanny, Ryan Shawhughes, and now has two more children with her: Clementine, who was born in 2008, and Indiana, who arrived in 2011.

Understandably, Ethan has had to defend the union, and said during a sit-down interview in 2013: “I know people imagine some kind of Sound Of Music type love affair, but the truth is by the time Ryan and I were falling in love, it had been a long while since I had employed her.”

Meanwhile, Maya is fast becoming something of a fashionista: she's walked the red-carpet before alongside her famous parents, and last summer she attended a Miu Miu resort show with her mother in Paris.

Kill Bill actress Uma Thurman caused quite the stir earlier this week when she appeared at a red carpet event with what appeared to be, well, a totally different face.

Twitter was soon awash with people speculating about whether or not the star had undergone cosmetic surgery to tighten the skin around her forehead and eyes.

However Uma's make-up artist has spoken out and claims the actress was simply trying out a new look with no mascara and an unusual eyebrow shape.

"The way I shaded her eyebrows with the pencil, I created an uplifting effect," said her longtime make-up artist Troy Surratt. "We experimented with the makeup," he said, adding that he was shocked by the media's negative reaction and quick assumptions.

"Frankly, I’m quite surprised by the conversation. By now I would have thought that we were all open to and knowledgeable of the role that makeup plays in the world of fashion and particularly celebrity, as a medium for creative self expression. I think that women should feel open and free to experiment with different beauty looks — it’s only makeup, at the end of the day it all washes off," said Troy to People magazine.

Uma was in New York for the premiere of her new NBC show The Slap, but was barely recognisable as she posed for photographers, with what looked like much more than a change of make-up kit.

However the actress was pictured just two weeks beforehand looking very much like her normal self:

Hmmm… we can't say we're big fans of the new look but we have to admit the actress is still looking fresh and fab at age 44!

Twitter was awash with speculation this week after actress Uma Thurman showed off a seriously dramatic transformation on the red carpet.

The star was in New York for the premiere of her new NBC show The Slap, but was barely recognisable as she posed for photographers.

Uma's skin appeared far smoother than usual, and the difference was especially noticeable under her eyes and across her forehead.

While the new look could of course be down to a new hairstyle and a lack of eye make-up, social media soon exploded with speculation about whether Uma may have undergone cosmetic surgery over the past few weeks.

Others were quick to defend the Kill Bill actress' new look:

For reference, here's Uma at at another event, the House of SpeakEasy Gala in New York, just two weeks ago:

This isn't the first time in recent months that an actress has been hit with online criticism for a drastic makeover. Last year, the world's media went into meltdown as Renée Zellweger walked the red carpet with a noticeably different appearance.

Renée never confirmed or denied getting surgery, simply saying, "People don't know me in my forties. Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older?! Ha. But I am different. I'm happy."

We wonder if Uma's response will be similarly cryptic?!

Quentin Tarantino and his longtime muse Uma Thurman got people talking at this year’s Cannes festival with lots of hand-holding and kisses on the red carpet.

Since then, it has been assumed that the two had finally gotten together and were a couple so we’re not too sure what Uma will make of this!

The Pulp Fiction director was pictured on the streets of New York with actress Vanessa Ferlito and the two looked very close indeed…!

The Julie and Julia actress also shared a photo of herself and Quentin on her Instagram page, writing: "Look what the cat dragged in. #NYC #QuentinTarantino."

Not only were the two kissing and cuddling but it also appears as if they were having a heated discussion – perhaps about the fact Quentin has a girlfriend?!

We hope for Uma's sake that the she and Quentin have gone their separate way before this!

Uma separated from her partner, Arpad Busson in April of this year.
