Stunning series of interviews by Maureen Dowd, on the cover of N.Y. Times Sunday Review, "A Goddess, A Mogul And a Mad Genius ... Uma Thurman ... is finally ready to talk about Harvey Weinstein" — and Quentin Tarantino:

  • "As she sits by the fire on a second night when we talk until 3 a.m., tears begin to fall down her cheeks."
  • Thurman: "Personally, it has taken me 47 years to stop calling people who are mean to you 'in love' with you. It took a long time because I think that as little girls we are conditioned to believe that cruelty and love somehow have a connection and that is like the sort of era that we need to evolve out of.”
  • Read about Thurman's "own Nancy Drew mystery."

Harvey's oh-no-he-didn't response: He releases a series of pics of him in party settings with Thurman, which his team says “demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman had had over the years.”

  • Deadline says Weinstein is also "is floating legal action" against Thurman.
