Busy Philips slams Quentin Tarantino, Diane Kruger comes to his defense

Busy Philips slams Quentin Tarantino, Diane Kruger comes to his defense

A 2003 radio interview with Quentin Tarantino has resurfaced this week in which the filmmaker says that the 13-year-old girl Roman Polanski was convicted of raping in 1977 "wanted to have it". "I asked Uma. I said, 'I think I need to do it". I've got to kind of commit to doing this to you.

"It affected me and Uma for the next two to three years", Tarantino, who ran the road prior to shooting the scene, said.

Tarantino: He was guilty of having sex with a minor. Polanski did plead guilty to unlawful sex with a minor, however, the director fled the country before he could face sentencing. "That's not rape", the director continued. "To me, when you use the word "rape" alright you're talking about violent, throwing them down".

Tarantino added: "Throwing the word "rape" around is like throwing the word "racist" around. It doesn't apply to everything people use it for".

Stern's co-host Robin Quivers calls out that Polanski had given the young girl drugs and alcohol and says that she did not want to have sex with Polanski.

Quivers told Tarantino that Polanski could have avoided the situation by not socialising with 13-year-olds, to which the director responded: "He likes girls". Here Tarantino defends Roman Polanski.

In addition to speaking out about disgraced filmmaker Harvey Weinstein and his alleged unwanted advances, Thurman recounted how her director for Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill spit in her face, choked her with a chain and persuaded her to operate a vehicle she deemed in the interview "a deathbox", which resulted in a crash.

Thurman spoke of an bad scene she felt forced to do, even though she was terrified of the danger involved. The star ultimately crashed into a tree and sustained permanent damage to her neck and knees.

"Quentin 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, regardless of it most likely being an event for which justice will never be possible", she wrote. 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. the cover up did have malicious intent, and shame on these three for all eternity.

She had her reservations - "That was a deathbox that I was in", she said - but agreed anyway.

However, in a recently published op-ed with the Times, Uma Thurman describes Tarantino as a volatile manipulator who not only ignored Weinstein's behavior, but also sided against her following her own assault at Weinstein's hands. He said he supplied the footage to Thurman in advance of The New York Times interview because he wanted to make things right.

"Watching her fight for the wheel ... remembering me hammering about how it was safe and she could do it. Emphasizing that it was a straight road, a straight road ... the fact that she believed me, and I literally watched this little S curve pop up".

"Quentin came in my trailer and didn't like to hear no, like any director", she told Dowd. And it wasn't. I was wrong. The Times published the raw footage which shows Thurman crashing, holding her head and then being helped out of the auto. That was an issue of me asking the actress, can we do this to get a realistic effect.
