Quentin Tarantino Breaks Silence On Uma Thurman Car Crash

Quentin Tarantino calls Uma Thurman car crash

In a resurfaced 2013 interview, the "Pulp Fiction" director was heard telling radio host Howard Stern that disgraced filmmaker Roman Polanski's abuse of a 13-year-old girl didn't constitute rape because "she wanted to have it".

Director Quentin Tarantino has responded to Uma Thurman's allegation that he put her life in danger with a risky vehicle stunt on "Kill Bill", calling the incident "the biggest regret of my life". Here was Tarantino's initial response.

"It's statutory rape, he had sex with a minor, that's not rape", Tarantino continued. Throwing the word rape around is like throwing the word racist around. It just doesn't apply to everything people use it for.

He also rejected the seriousness of Polanski drugging the girl before raping her.

Tarantino responded to Stern by saying, "He didn't rape a 13-year-old".

"She was 13!" Quivers exclaimed.

"No, that was not the case at all!".

He went on: "I don't believe that's rape".

I knew enough to do more than I did. There was more to it than just the normal rumours, the normal gossip.

"Look, she was down with this", concluded Tarantino, defending Polaski, 84, till the very end.

In Thurman's interview, the actress claimed that Tarantino put her in jeopardy during the production when he insisted that she drive a auto for a scene, despite the actress' multiple requests for a stunt driver to shoot the scene in her place because she felt unsafe.

"As a director, you learn things and sometimes you learn them through horrendous mistakes". That was when I realised there was a pattern, in Harvey's luring and pushing attacks. "I knew he was lying, that everything Uma was saying was the truth". And Uma having to accept a fake apology from Weintein so they could all work together on Kill Bill must've been a hard pill for the actor to swallow.

She said he becoming angry when she asked that a stunt person drive the auto; he had an idea about the way he wanted her hair blowing in the wind. I told her it would be OK.

Thurman, 47, told the Times she was hesitant to shoot the scene, which featured her character driving down a seemingly straight road. He also detailed the crash, from his perspective. None of us ever considered it a stunt. Maybe we should have, but we didn't. "Far from me being mad, livid and angry, I was all...smiley". I talked her into getting in the auto, I assured her the road was safe. There are no weird dips, there are no gully kinds of things.Uma had a license.

He did admit that the crash affected his relationship with Thurman, professionally and personally. As a result, the driving conditions changed and Thurman crashed.

"I said, 'Look, I've got to strangle you, '" Tarantino said he told Kruger before filming the scene.

"I post this clip to memorialize it's full exposure in the nyt by Maureen Dowd".

"The circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality. We're gonna see the reaction in your face and I'm gonna yell cut", Tarantino explained, before adding, "And she trusted me".

Thurman spoke out again Monday on Instagram, reposting the crash video and acknowledging that Tarantino "was deeply regretful and remains remorseful about this sorry event, and gave me the footage years later so I could expose it and let it see the light of day. It wasn't secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things".

"THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE", she said. They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress. "The cover up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity". CAA never sent anyone to Mexico.

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

Quentin Tarantino and actress Uma Thurman arrive to the premiere of "Kill Bill II" at the Palais des Festivals during the 57th Annual International Cannes Film Festival May 16, 2004 in Cannes, France.

Tarantino defended his tactics in an interview with Deadline.

"Naturally, I did it".
