Uma broke her silence in February when she alleged notorious Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein attacked her in a hotel room in London and threatened to ruin her career if she said anything.
She also detailed a fight with director Quentin Tarantino after she felt bullied into driving an unsafe car while filming Kill Bill, resulting in a terrifying crash.
Uma tells In Touch, while she thinks it’s too soon to say if she has caused any positive change by speaking out, she can only hope there will be in the future.
“I am very hopeful that there has been awakening of respect and of awareness and that that will make a better world and workplace for my girls and also my son.”
“Being a mother is probably one of the great blessings that has ever been bestowed on me, and that kind of love is something you can’t imagine your life without, once you have experienced it,” she tells In Touch of being mom to Maya, 19 , and Levon, 16, with ex-husband Ethan Hawke, and Luna, 5, with ex Arpad Busson. “I am flawed but I do love them.”
