Kill Bill: producer responds to auto crash allegations

Two days before Tarantino's interview, a New York Times story featuring Thurman's account of Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault of her came out, where she also talked about the auto crash she got involved in while filming "Kill Bill". "For this I hold Lawrence Bender, E Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein exclusively responsible".

Thurman (47) in an interview with The New York Times published on Saturday, said she had an enormous fight with Tarantino after the auto crashed and accused him of trying to kill her.

The auto crash, which resulted in permanent damage to Thurman's neck and knees, happened in Mexico near the end of the filming for the 2004 film. "What we thought would be a simple driving shot, nearly killed her", he further said. She claimed that Tarantino forced her to drive the vehicle, which she felt was unsafe. "F$3 or 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". 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 incident left her with permanent damage to neck as well as knees. Stern asked the director why Hollywood continued to support "this mad man, this director who raped a 13-year-old", to which Tarantino replied: "It was statutory rape. he had sex with a minor". A 1:47 video that accompanied the Times article online shows Tarantino coming over and appearing to check on the actress after the crash. "It was not a straight road", Thurman said. We've been talking about it ad-nauseum and I feel bad because she has been doing a Broadway play, at the same time. I told her it would be OK.

"THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE", she said. "It needed to be that mix of saliva and the brown juice", Tarantino told Deadline Hollywood of the scene in which he spat tobacco-filled saliva all over her face.

"He was wrong. I bet he knows it", said Geimer. "[Tarantino] said: 'I promise you the auto is fine". But I can't have you laying here, getting spit on, again and again and again, because somebody else is messing it up by missing.

"When he tried to wriggle out of it, and how things actually happened, I never bought his story". He said seeing the crash was "just awful ..."

She claimed Tarantino forced her to do a stunt that she had asked not to do, citing safety fears - and that her fears had come true when she crashed the auto into a palm tree.

At the last minute, because it was much later in the day and light had shifted, it was proposed the drive be performed and filmed going in the opposite direction. "It was a sand road and it was not a straight road".

He agreed that the incident tore a hole in his relationship with Thurman, and that "a trust was broken".

Tarantino, who has drawn criticism ever since the details of the crash emerged, told Deadline that he was the one who gave the footage to Thurman to help her with the NYT article, reports The things she felt I could have done better in protecting her in that movie.
