Quentin Tarantino calls Uma Thurman vehicle crash "biggest regret of my life"

Uma Thurman Quentin Tarantino

In the Times article, Thurman, 47, said Weinstein pushed her down when she met him in his suite at London's Savoy Hotel.

In the interview, the journalist also quotes Thurman as saying she suffered a traumatising auto crash while shooting Tarantino's Kill Bill - something which she claims the director "persuaded" her to do.

Thurman took to Instagram on Monday to assure everyone she had forgiven Tarantino, who said the actress wasn't prepared for "the uprising against me this whole weekend", adding, "She blames me for not talking to (journalist) Maureen Dowd, saying it's your own damn fault".

In the scene where Thurman is stifled by a chain, the executive said it was her proposal to really be seen in the scene, gagging. "THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE. for this i hold Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein exclusively responsible. they lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress. shame on these three for all eternity".

"They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress", Thurman says. "He also did so with full knowledge it could cause him personal harm, and I am proud of him for doing the right thing and for his courage". "He was furious because I'd cost them a lot of time". CAA never sent anyone to Mexico. i hope they look after other clients more respectfully if they in fact want to do the job for which they take money with any decency.

"The cover up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity", Thurman wrote. "CAA (Creative Artists Agency) never sent anyone to Mexico. i hope they look after other clients more respectfully if they in fact want to do the job for which they take money with any decency".

Tarantino blamed NYT columnist Maureen Dowd for the use of her obtuse language in describing the incident.

Tarantino also addresses the Times article's claim that he spit and choked Thurman, for the movie.

There has been an ongoing controversy around Producer Harvey Weinstein after multiple women came out with sexual harassment allegations.


Brafman said Thurman's statements to the Times were being carefully examined and investigated "before deciding whether any legal action against her would be appropriate".

Saturday brought Uma Thurman's long-awaited detailing of the "unpleasant things" Harvey Weinstein did to her, and her recounting included a second name: the third member of the "Miramax troika", as Maureen Dowd wrote in her interview with Thurman: Quentin Tarantino.

The New York Times article includes comments from Weinstein through a spokesman admitting he had propositioned Thurman but denied threatening her career.

Police in the United Kingdom are investigating a number of sexual assault allegations against the former Hollywood heavyweight.

Thurman hinted months ago that she too had something to say about Weinstein.

She had objected to getting in the "deathbox" auto, she said, but Tarantino insisted. Then, while we were getting ready to do "Kill Bill", Uma tells me that he had done the same thing to her. The Times published the raw footage which shows Thurman crashing, holding her head and then being helped out of the vehicle.

The director said: "I knew that the piece was happening. I was very happy to get it to Uma". I had really always felt a connection to the greater good in my work with Quentin and most of what I allowed to happen to me and what I participated in was kind of like a terrible mud wrestle with a very angry brother.

"Yeah, I did", Tarantino responded with a little chuckle.
