Quentin Tarantino Clarifies "Kill Bill" Car Crash, Uma Thurman/Harvey Weinstein Drama

  • Uma Thurman

Maybe we should have, but we didn't. I'm sure I wasn't in a rage and I wasn't livid. "Thurman, notwithstanding, said she voiced anxieties to Tarantino about working the vehicle on a sandy street". I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldn't tell by the look on my face. She had just told me they hadn't let her see the footage. "And it wasn't. I was wrong", he said. But when Thurman drove the auto in the opposite direction for the scene, there was an S-curve that, he claims, led her to crash. Now, I love Michael, he's a terrific actor, but I didn't trust him with this kind of intricate work, of nailing this. I do not believe though with malicious intent.

According to the media house, he defended Roman Polanski in a 2003 Howard Stern interview, saying that filmmaker's 13-year-old victim "wanted to have it and dated the guy".

Asked by radio host Howard Stern why "Hollywood embraces this mad man, this director who raped a 13-year-old", Mr. Tarantino responded, "He didn't rape a 13-year-old". It was statutory rape...he had sex with a minor. To me, when you use the word 'rape, ' you're talking about violent, throwing them down, it's one of the most violent crimes in the world. Throwing the word rape around is like throwing the word racist around. It doesn't apply to everything people use it for ...

"Quentin came in my trailer and didn't like to hear no, like any director", she said.

Thurman then Instagrammed the footage of the auto crash scene on Monday, commending Tarantino for giving her the video. "I ended up taking the hit and taking the heat".

Tarantino said that when he confronted Weinstein about his behavior Weinstein had tried to downplay Thurman's accusations.


"There was an element of closure", Tarantino said. "We did our two times, and then like Uma with the spitting thing, Diane said, OK, if you need to do it once more, you can".

"As a director, you learn things and sometimes you learn them through horrendous mistakes". Footage of the eventual crash is included in the New York Times article. It wasn't like we didn't talk.

In a statement to ABC News, a rep for Weinstein said, "Mr. Weinstein acknowledges making an awkward pass 25 years ago at Ms. Thurman in England after misreading her signals, after a flirtatious exchange in Paris, for which he immediately apologized and deeply regrets". "There was an element of closure".

After the crash, she says she was denied access to the footage by Miramax studios unless she signed an agreement "releasing them of any consequences of my future pain and suffering", which she refused to do. The incident left her with a "permanently damaged neck" and "screwed up knees".

"The Inglourious Basterds "choking scene" that Kruger is referring to is one in which her character, Bridget von Hammersmark, was strangled to death by Christoph Waltz's character, Col. Hans Landa".

"That was an issue of me asking the actress, can we do this to get a realistic effect", he told Deadline. "And she agreed with it, she knew it would look good and she trusted me to do it. Consequently, I realize. that is a real thing". I had been through so many rings of fire by that point.
