Uma Thurman Shares Dramatic Footage From Kill Bill Stunt Gone Wrong

Uma Thurman Shares Dramatic Footage From Kill Bill Stunt Gone Wrong

Thurman's Instagram caption ended with a message to CAA, the talent agency that some have Weinstein's alleged behavior, saying, "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." .

When asked about particular scenes in the film where Thurman was spit on and choked with a chain, Tarantino responded to controversies around himself personally performing the actions off-camera.

Uma Thurman posted the footage of her crash on the set of "Kill Bill" to Instagram on Monday.

But the clip has only just been released after Thurman managed to convince Tarantino to pass the footage onto her. As Thurman recounted, Tarantino told her, "Hit 40 miles per hour or your hair won't blow the right way and I'll make you do it again".

Movie studio Miramax told her at the time that she could see the footage of the crash if she gave up her right to sue, Thurman said.

A spokesman for Weinstein told the Times that Thurman "very well could have said this".

Quentin Tarantino has opened up about his role in Uma Thurman's vehicle crash on the sets of Kill Bill, calling it "the biggest regret" of his life but denied any involvement in hiding the footage from the actor.

Thurman and Tarantino also worked together in her star-making role as Mia in 1994's "Pulp Fiction", which Weinstein produced. She claimed the famed filmmaker had failed to protect her from a auto accident during the filming of the 2003 movie, after he insisted she perform a stunt driving sequence she was uncomfortable with.

A lot of attention has been given to the recent, sickening allegations that disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted Uma Thurman in the 1990s, but now people are turning their attention to the other allegations in Thurman's interview - this time involving director Quentin Tarantino.

Attorney Ben Brafman says Weinstein is "stunned and saddened" by the allegations, which came in a New York Times interview with columnist Maureen Dowd published Saturday.

"I used the word 'anger, ' but I was more anxious about crying, to tell you the truth", Thurman was quoted as saying. "I know exactly what I need and I think I should just do it.' I have to say it was very odd being strangled by the director". And thinking about, how did you think about things during that time? [Weinstein] pushed me down.

Uma said the producer tried to do all kinds of "unpleasant things". I was doing anything I could to get the train back on the track. However, she said she managed to "wriggle away". She said: "I am one of the reasons that a young girl would walk into his room alone, the way I did". The article features a video of her driving and then crashing into a palm tree, which led to her damaging her knees and having her in a neck brace for a while.

"Her eyes were insane, and she was totally out of control", said the friend, Ilona Herman. The latest actor to join the list is Uma Thurman.

Uma Thurman initially thought Harvey Weinstein "was my champion". It possibly made me overlook warning signs.
