With the continuing stories coming out about allegations of sexual misconduct in Hollywood, Uma Thurman has added her account to the list.

As reported by the New York Times, not only has Thurman accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, but she has also discussed her relationship with Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino and the dangerous work conditions under which he allegedly created.

According to Thurman, she refused to drive an unstable car during shooting but was coerced by Tarantino to do the scene. The article included footage of Thurman losing control of the car, which crashed into a tree. Thurman said she is still suffering from injuries obtained during that accident.

As the conversation continues about power dynamics in Hollywood, we want to hear from listeners. Have you ever experienced dangerous work conditions and how did you handle that? If you’re an actor, how far would you go for your art--i.e. weight loss, doing your own stunts, etc? Call us at 866-893-5722.
