Pulp Fiction actor Uma Thurman has explained that Quentin Tarantino, director of blockbusters Kill Bill Volume 1 and Kill Bill Volume 2 starring her had nothing to do with the alleged cover-up of the car crash video which took place in Mexico while shooting a sequence for Kill Bill Volume 2.
Thurman had expressed her reluctance to drive the car after she was told that the car, a blue Karmann Ghia was not operating correctly after its manual transmission was reconfigured to an automatic.
That is when she insisted that a stunt driver do the shot.
But Tarantino insisted that she drives the car and she met with an accident the footage of which she shared on Instagram and in a lengthy caption said, "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."
Tarantino faced a lot of criticism following Thurman's revelations.
He acknowledged that he is responsible for insisting that Thurman perform the car stunt that nearly killed her.
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.
