Uma Thurman Exposes Car Crash Cover Up on Set of 'Kill Bill'

Wednesday, 07 Feb, 2018

"It was just driving". Are you down to committing to it so we can get a really good look?' ... "'But if you want my face to get red and the tears to come to my eye, then you kind of need to choke me'". "Far from me being mad, livid and angry, I was all...smiley".

Last year, the woman who was assaulted by Polanski asked an LA court to end the case against him, saying she had forgiven the Oscar-winning director.

In an Instagram post Monday, Thurman says she does not blame Tarantino who helped her obtain the footage but she says, "the cover up did have malicious intent", holding two of the film's producers and the "notorious Harvey Weinstein exclusively responsible". I told her it would be safe.

This already made her uneasy but Tarantino talked her into driving the vehicle by promising that it was fine and that she would be riding on a straight piece of road. I didn't force her into the vehicle. And it wasn't. I was wrong. I don't believe it's rape.

In short, Tarantino said in a recently unearthed 2003 radio interview with Howard Stern that not only was Polanski not at fault, but that the 13-year-old girl "wanted to have it", among other things.

Specifically, while discussing Roman Polanski's sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl, Tarantino claimed the victim "wanted to have it". "It was statutory rape", Tarantino told the shock jock.

Tarantino added: "Throwing the word "rape" around is like throwing the word "racist" around. It doesn't apply to everything people use it for", he told Howard Stern in 2003. "I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard".

Quentin Tarantino spoke out about Uma Thurman's crash scene in "Kill Bill", calling it his biggest regret of his life in an interview with Deadline. Uma has since accused Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, Harvey Weinstein of being responsible for covering up the crash. "I said, Oh, Uma, it's just fine", he said". "I knew enough to do more than I did".

"First, we find something I had already seen, which was the edited footage, so you don't actually see the crash".

Unfortunately, the drive was altered at the last minute and, even though Tarantino had tested the road himself, they chose to have Thurman drive the other way. It wasn't like we didn't talk. "A trust was broken".

Tarantino: Look, she was down with this.

"There was an element of closure", he said.

She said the producer assaulted her in a London hotel room after the release of Pulp Fiction in 1994. Polanski has since been unable to return to the United States, and has remained one of Hollywood's most polarizing figures. She didn't get hurt. "Although, by mounting a camera on the back of this little Karmann Ghia, it made the vehicle, in the back, way too heavy once it got in trouble". I knew they weren't letting her see the footage, but I didn't know she thought I was part of that.
