NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on actress Uma Thurman's allegations of sexual misconduct by Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein (all times local):

5:45 p.m.

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.

Actress Uma Thurman has accused embattled Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of forcing himself upon her sexually and director Quentin Tarantino of making her perform a dangerous car stunt that injured her.

Thurman is quoted in The New York Times on Saturday as saying Weinstein attacked her in London. She says he pushed her down and tried to shove himself on her and expose himself.

Weinstein's representatives say he acknowledges making an "awkward pass" but denies physical assault.

Thurman says when she expressed fear about driving a possibly faulty car in Tarantino's "Kill Bill: Vol. 1" he insisted.

Video shows Thurman crashing into a tree. She says she left a hospital in a neck brace with damaged knees and a concussion.

Tarantino hasn't responded to a request for comment.
