He pushed me down. He tried to shove himself on me. He tried to expose himself. He did all kinds of unpleasant things.

If you do what you did to me to other people, you will lose your career, your reputation, and your family, I promise you.

 I approached Quentin in very serious terms and told him that he had let Uma down as a director and as a friend.
