Diane Kruger Defends Her Experience With Quentin Tarantino Amid Uma Thurman Controversy

Diane Kruger Defends Her Experience With Quentin Tarantino Amid Uma Thurman Controversy

The stories told by Thurman in that piece included an account of a risky, life-threatening auto accident she was involved in on the set of Tarantino's Kill Bill, in which she implies the director was at least partially to blame for encouraging her to get behind the wheel for what should have been a stunt driving shot.

Tarantino continued to assertively defend Polanski. Here was Tarantino's initial response.

"He didn't rape a 13-year-old", Tarantino told Stern. That's not rape. To me, when you use the word rape, you're talking about violent, throwing them down. "Throwing the word "rape" around is like throwing the word 'racist" around.

"She wanted to have it,"Tarantino claims, calling the rape survivor a "13-year-old party girl" who "was down to party with Roman".

"No, that was not the case at all!". "And by the way, we're talking about America's morals, we're not talking about the morals of Europe and everything".

By any estimation, this has been an absolutely tumultuous few days for any news revolving around director Quentin Tarantino.

Tarantino went onto discuss Thurman's allegations against Weinstein confirming he knew of the producer's behaviour. There was more to it than just the normal rumours, the normal gossip.

She said: "The steering wheel was at my belly and my legs were jammed under me".

The incident involving Thurman became public on Saturday, in a New York Times column in which the actress recounted Tarantino's persuading her to drive a vehicle on the Mexico set that she had been warned might be faulty.

"As a director, you learn things and sometimes you learn them through horrendous mistakes. I can only imagine that was Harvey's mindset on it". "It affected me and Uma for the next two to three years". 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 wanted to have it and dated the guy and...

"In light of the recent allegations made by Uma Thurman against Harvey Weinstein and her terrifying work experience on Kill Bill, my name has been mentioned in numerous articles in regards to the choking scene in Inglourious Basterds", Kruger said in an Instagram caption Tuesday. Thurman had safety concerns about driving the auto, but she was assured by Tarantino that there were no problems.

This update also adds a new PS Plus tab to the Library, which clarifies what games you own from PS Plus' Monthly Free Games. The child will receive notifications telling them when the time is about to expire so they can save and quit their game.

The feature comes shortly after The New York Times ran a tell-all profile on Thurman, in which she accused the writer and director of pressuring her into driving an unsafe auto on the set of "Kill Bill". He also detailed the crash, from his perspective. "After the crash, when Uma went to the hospital, I was feeling in total anguish at what had happened". None of us looked at it as a stunt.

Tarantino talks about driving down the road himself prior to the accident, just to make sure the road was safe.

It's hard for us to imagine how someone could look at the conversation above and side with the person espousing the rape of a 13-year-old over the people espousing the rights of the victim, but the sad truth is that they're all around us. Maybe we should have, but we didn't. "'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'".

He said he drove the road in the auto before Thurman without incident and assured her it was safe. The footage from the crash, which Thurman said took almost 15 years to get a hold of, was included in the Times piece. As a result, the driving conditions changed and Thurman crashed.

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

But now, in a post on Instagram, Uma has revealed Tarantino was "remorseful" after the crash, and the star believes there was no "malicious intent" behind his actions.

Tarantino replied: "He didn't rape a 13-year-old". They lied, destroyed evidence, and continue to lie about the permanent harm they caused and then chose to suppress.

Thurman also lashed out at her agency at the time, CAA, for failing to send someone to Mexico to check up on her.

She said he "immediately apologised", adding: "Her claims about being physically assaulted are untrue".

Tarantino is now under fire for allegedly putting actress Uma Thurman in unsafe working conditions on the set of Kill Bill.
