In an interview with the New York Times this weekend Uma Therman spoke about the injuries suffered in a brutal crash that happened on the set of Kill Bill 15 years ago, an interview in which she also for the first time accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct.
Therman told of the concussion and knee damage caused by the onset crash in Mexico.
Tarantino was feeling the heat over the last few days and has finally spoken about it, labeling the crash ‘One of the biggest regrets of my life’.
The Pulp Fiction directior said ‘We did the shot. And she crashed. At first, no one really knew what happened. After the crash, when Uma went to the hospital, I was feeling in total anguish at what had happened.’
Therman posted the video of the crash on her Instagram along with a statement which mentions Tarantino is ‘Deeply Regretful’ also saying that ‘THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE’
i post this clip to memorialize it’s full exposure in the nyt by Maureen Dowd. the circumstances of this event were negligent to the point of criminality. i do not believe though with malicious intent. 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. 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. THE COVER UP after the fact is UNFORGIVABLE. for this i hold Lawrence Bender, E. Bennett Walsh, and the notorious Harvey Weinstein solely 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. 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.
