A clip of Uma Thurman giving a chilling response when asked about the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment allegations has attracted attention online.

The actress has not yet weighed in on the claims against the Hollywood mogul, saying she's "waiting to feel less angry".

"I don't have a tidy sound bite for you," the actress told Access Hollywood in an interview at the premiere of The Parisian Woman, visibly seething, restraining her emotions.

"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.

"When I'm ready, I'll say what I have to say."

Allegations against Mr Weinstein continue to mount, with actresses including Ashley Judd, Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwyneth Paltrow among the more than 90 who have come forward about his alleged harassment and abuse.

Thurman told Access Hollywood their decision to speak out was "commendable".

The actress has worked with Mr Weinstein on numerous films, including Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill franchise.

While the interview took place many weeks ago, the video is just now being shared widely after actress Asia Argento - who herself accused Mr Weinstein of sexual assault - shared it on Saturday (local time).

"Dear #UmaThurman may peace be with you and your soul," Argento wrote. "We need your strong voice, it truly is commanding."

Mr Weinstein is now being investigated by police in Los Angeles, London and New York for alleged acts of sexual assault. He has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex, and is yet to be charged with any crime.

Various other powerful men in Hollywood have been accused of sexual assault in the wake of claims against Mr Weinstein, including James Toback, Kevin Spacey, and Brett Ratner.
