Harvey Weinstein is considering taking legal action against Uma Thurman following an interview she gave in which she claimed he had tried to force himself on her.
The disgraced movie mogul has slammed the 47-year-old actress' claims he made sexual advance towards her in a Parisian hotel room, before attacking her in London, insisting she has made "false accusations" against him.
His lawyers issued a statement following Uma's interview in the New York Times newspaper, in which she laid bare her alleged ordeal, which read: "Ben Brafman, Mr Weinstein's attorney said that Harvey is stunned and saddened by what he claims to be false accusations by Uma Thurman, someone he has worked closely with for more than two decades.
"Mr Weinstein acknowledges making an awkward pass at Ms Thurman 25 years ago which he regrets and immediately apologized for.
"Why Ms. Thurman would wait 25 years to publicly discuss this incident and why according to Weinstein, she would embellish what really happened to include false accusations of attempted physical assault is a mystery to Weinstein and his attorneys.
