Uma Thurman has joined Harvey Weinstein’s litany of female accusers, months after saying she was “waiting to feel less angry” to offer her own story to the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment. In a New York Times interview, the actress accused the disgraced Hollywood producer of pushing her on a hotel bed and trying “to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things.” She said she managed to fight him off. Weinstein admitted making an “awkward pass,” but denied any physical contact. Thurman also strongly criticized director Quentin Tarantino—accusing him of ignoring her complaints about Weinstein, of physically endangering her on the set of Kill Bill by demanding she drive an unsafe car that then crashed, and of spitting on her during filming. Tarantino “didn’t like to hear no,” Thurman said.
Los Angeles detectives have confirmed that Robert Wagner, 87, is now a “person of interest” in the suspicious 1981 death of his wife, actress Natalie Wood. Wood, then 43, was sailing with her husband and actor Christopher Walken when she disappeared from Wagner’s boat, Splendor. Her bruised body was found floating in the water the next morning; a coroner ruled her death an accident by drowning. Two new witnesses have emerged, however, to confirm reports that Wood and Wagner had a blazing, alcohol-fueled argument in their stateroom before her disappearance. The boat’s captain also heard a fight; when he went below deck, he said he found Wagner crying and saying, “Natalie’s gone, she’s missing.”
Anthony Scaramucci may have left the White House, but his feud with former colleagues goes on. In an interview with Vanity Fair, the short-lived communications director compared Steve Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist, to the pig from Animal Farm “that stands on his two legs the minute he gets power.” The Mooch called Reince Priebus “Rancid Penis” and said he was a backstabber who filled the White House with “Never Trumpers.” Scaramucci said even “the most diabolical person” from Wall Street would be considered an “Eagle Scout” in the cutthroat world of Washington, D.C.
