Uma Thurman has said Harvey Weinstein does not "deserve a bullet" and suggested she has been a victim of sexual harassment.

The actress, who earlier this month said she was too angry to share her thoughts on the slew of allegations that have rocked Hollywood, broke her silence in an emotional Thanksgiving post on Instagram - saying: "I'm glad it's going slowly - you don't deserve a bullet".

Beneath a picture of a scene from Kill Bill: Volume II in which her character, Beatrix Kiddo, vows to go on a "rampage of revenge", Thurman wrote: "H A P P Y T H A N K S G I V I N G. I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others.

"I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn't tell by the look on my face.

"I feel it's important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so... Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! (Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators - I'm glad it's going slowly - you don't deserve a bullet) -stay tuned."

When she was previously asked how she felt about women speaking out about their experiences of harassment, Thurman replied: "I think it's commendable.

"I have learned, I am not a child and I have learned that ... when I've spoken in anger, I usually regret the way I express myself.

"So I've been waiting to feel less angry. And when I'm ready, I'll say what I have to say."
