Weinstein considers legal action against Thurman

Posted: Updated:

Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's attorneys have suggested Weinstein could take legal action against actress Uma Thurman, who has accused him of forcing himself upon her sexually years ago.

Weinstein's lawyers say he acknowledges making an "awkward pass" at her in a London hotel room but denies physical assault.

Attorney Ben Brafman says Weinstein is "stunned and saddened" by the allegations, which came in a New York Times interview with columnist Maureen Dowd published Saturday.

The attorney says it's a mystery why Thurman would wait 25 years to publicly make the claim.

Brafman says Thurman's statements to the Times "are being carefully examined and investigated" before Weinstein decides whether any legal action against her would be appropriate.

Thurman says Weinstein pushed her down and tried to shove himself on her and expose himself.
